rough morning

Post  Mountainman Vic on Wed Nov 19, 2014 7:07 pm

I hd a big main frame 10 with kickers come in this morning. I miss judged the yardage by 2 yards and then forgot to take off two yards for the down hill shot. which turned out I shot for 33 when I should have held for 29 and I hit high just above the spinal cord and hit one of the vertical fingers of the spine. Sad After going a quater mile he clotted up.

I'm sorry to hear bud.  I'm hoping you were meant for a bigger one.  It sounds like he will be just fine.

That sucks Vic, sorry to hear that. You messed up though, you are always supposed to blame it on your equipment. Laughing
