A handicapped archery permit from the DECs special licenses unit and BINGO, I was back in business.
The product sells for $139 and can be purchased from a company called Hickory Creek Archery. I highly recommend it to those who are physically incapable of drawing and holding a bow.
It gave me a new lease on bow hunting and gave me the ability to someday share this passion with my son (who, did I mention, was born on opening day?)
