They will have cameras. They will be sighing once again " that Gretchen..she's always so backwater, redneck, messy" and calling for wardrobe and make up!
Some how I've convinced them that I'm a great bowfisher (they'll learn soon enough, that I love to bowfish, but my skills - eh - could be better), and everyone knows a great bowfisher needs a great bow.
Since dear husband was not getting the message I took matters into my own hands, and gave Brian at Outdoors Experience a call. Outdoors Experience is a company that's widely known on the bowfishing circuit and also known for excellent old fashioned one on one customer service.
Brian was ever so helpful when I explained to him that what I needed, and how many dollars I had to work with. Best of all, there was no talking down to me because I was a woman.
It's not easy to fit a bow to my shrimpy 24 inch draw length, it's not easy to fit a bow for someone with strength and cordination issues from MS, nor is it easy to please a picky old lady like me, but Brian cheerfully came through with shining colors.
I also explained to Brian that TeamWON was soon to be here in Southern Illinois for the Great Carp Caper- I fretted to him about shipping times.
Not to worry - he assured me; you'll have it tomorrow.
TOMORROW??? Did he sense the urgency in my voice? Could he tell I was completely fed up with my old recurve?
Yes tomorrow - it arrived the next day in great shape and ready to go. Now I have plenty of time before the Great Carp Caper to get the hang of using the new bow and the new prototype arrows that Cajun Archery , a Great Carp Caper sponsor, was kind enough to send me to trial. The arrows are designed specifically for short draw lengths and light draw weights.

A quick trip to the creek last night and I was in love with the bow from the first shot - I was also impressed with the distance I got from the new arrows. Alas, daylight was fading, so I didn't get to actually stick a fish, but I'm headed out the door now to give it a whirl!
