If you are such a frivolous person as me, the chances are that you take up a new hobby month in month out. As I am an outdoor guy my hobbies have something to do with outdoor activities as well. But, as my enthusiasm fades out I give up on them as quickly as I started them. So as I was looking my basement last month I discovered an incredible amount of things I have bought throughout these years and only used them once or twice. What the hell I was thinking when I bought a tramboline? What caught my attention though was a crossbow.
It was 5 years ago that my good friend Mark invited me in a hunting epedition with his friends. That was a good time. We hunted, we stayed in a loft for the night, we drank whiskey, and then we hunted again. Well, to be honest, they hunted. I was just observing. When Mark fired his crossbow and brought down a deer, I was hooked. I was going to be the best bowhunter the world has seen. I came back home and announced the news to my wife. She just looked at me as if I was some alien but I didn’t care. I was determined.
I turned on my laptop and started researching what crossbow should I buy. After reading numerous reviews of the best crossbows, I was ready. Seven days later and 500 dollars poorer my crossbow package from Barnett finally arrived. I read the manual, assembled the crossbow, shot it my backyard 10 times and the sling was cut. That’s the end of the story. Our next encounter was last month.
Five years later I turned on my tablet this time to find out what someone could do with a crossbow, except the profound choice of course. Selling it wasn’t an option though, cause I wouldn’t get half my money back and I would like to avoid the hassle of posting an ad, meeting etc., so I decided to be creative instead. There was a spot above my fireplace that this crossbow could look nice.
I just needed some ideas
And here is what I created. It’s propably not worth 500 dollars but it looks good, my wife is happy, so I am happy too.
I would really like to hear your opinions. Be gentle, guys!
