The Engagement

September 14, 2013 by Lindsay Croce

September 14th 2013 opening day of New Jerseys early archery season found me and my boyfriend in the tree in hopes for my first ever buck kill with my Mathews Jewel. Sure enough at 4:30pm I look up and see a beautiful half rack headed our direction. He walks in at 20 yards but before I could pull off the shot he winds us and trots off. Just when I thought the hunt might be over out steps this velvet 7pt. 15 yards broadside I smoked him with my Mathews Jewel. After a 75yard blood trail I finally had my hands wrapped around my first buck. The story however doesnt end there… As my boyfriend and I are taking celebration photos he drops to one knee and proposes to me!!! Of course I said YES! The best part was my boyfriend filmed the whole thing! (he videos all of our hunts)… This will absolutely be a day I never forget. This is why I shoot a MATHEWS!
