I REALLY want one of these.  The slow stall/approach speed is truly impressive.

Bigfoot Sighting

I looked at the list of things that the Doctor told me I wasn’t supposed to do 6 days after having hip surgery and bow hunting in the woods in the dark was not on the list.  That being said it’s probably best if nobody tells him, OK?
