We live in a subdivision in Colorado Springs. Not country at all but on the west side of I25 and about 2-3 miles to the base of the Front Range. Muleys are thick in the neighborhood. We also have bears, bobcats, coyotes and cougars roaming through our yards.
Legally I can shot on my property but do not as the wife does not want to shoot the pets. Also it would not be much of a hunt sitting on the back porch and shooting it at the water trough. As I have said before, I would like to find his sheds come this spring and make a mount of them.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
