“You gotta be lucky you get in the right place. You gotta be lucky that you don’t screw up. So yet there’s alot of luck in it. I dont care what anybody says, you gotta have some luck to take a trophy like that. It’s been quite an experience. I wish I could go through something like this again.” – Del Austin

Always remembered and always respected. This man was a legend and inspiration for bowhunters. I’d love to go on a hunt with him or Fred 🙂
