about a week ago there was a cold snap here in southern wisconsin. It gave me the bowhunting itch. I went shopping for bows....I gave up bowhunting 6 years ago because of all of my back problems. There is a Mathews dealer about 20 minutes from my home. I picked one up and tried to pull it back. My back began to burn before i even had it a tenth of the way back. 6 trips to the doctor later and chiropractor i am kinda back to normal. My doctors shook their fingers at me and asked me what I was thinking when i pulled back a compound bow. My chiropractor has given me a 5 pound weight restriction and my general doctor a 20 pound limitation. BOTH told me i qualify for a cross bow special license. Will see.
