November 12, 2011: Two Years in the Making.

It's been two years since the accident and I'm finally back in the game. Although it isn't a trophy buck it's still a trophy to me. A nice mature doe at 25 yards with a crossbow isn't bad. It's been a lot of work to get this far, and I still have a long ways to go. Much thanks to those who made this possible (mainly: Steve Beck, Larry Moss, and Shyrick Raber but also many others). I thank everyone for the words of encouragement that have gotten me this far.

Thanks, AWB. (I will post again within a few days, I'm tired and need to catch up on some rest.)


  1. Sweeeet! I'm so glad hunting has become possible and I hope this season gets better and better. I know how much you love the outdoors and the hunt, and even on a dull day it beats being stuck inside I bet! Looks like the fish is finally back in the pond :) Love, Bekah

  2. Bill,
    David told me about the doe that you shot with your crossbow. What a thrill this must be for you. It's been a long time coming.

  3. Rob says "Whoa! That's awesome! What is he going to make with it? Chops? Steaks? So cool..." What do you like the best? ~Amber and Rob...

  4. Congratulations Bill!!!

    I am so excited for you. Looks like it was a good hunting season for both of us. (i got my first elk, a 2yr old bull, in the Snowy Range in mid-October). Keep up the good work!

  5. Jeanne writes--Bill so glad things have worked out and that you got to go hunting this season. Hoping you can get more this week also. Will be checking in for more pictures. Good Luck!!!!

  6. I know a lot of people helped, but the hardest work was done by you. Go you!
