Broken Bow String

Last year while Bowhunting in Backcountry , I spotted a couple of nice four points. I started my stock and got when in 60 yards and realized this is as close as I was going to get (practiced many times at 60 yards and was confident with the shot), so I decided to take the shot. As I was knocking my arrow, I noticed my string was partially cut. Going against my better judgment, I decided to take the shot. My shot was low and to the left, which I can contribute to being rushed for fear of my string breaking. Needless to say, this was the last time I shot my bow.

My buddy Mike wasn't as lucky as I ways. Last year he went out in the backcountry bowhunting and while he was taking some practice shots his string broke. Lucky for him it broke during the release of the arrow, which limited the damage to his bow to only a broken string.
