Wanted to send out kudos to Sammie Romano at Chag's in Metairie as I have a lil Black Raptor Barnett Crossbow(bought lil jewel at Cabela's in Gonzales)and somehow(Sammie told he how easy the arrow spring gets broken)the spring that holds the arrow in place was missing and probably got broken off when I lent the bow to my older son.I called a NShore bow shop and they were extremely nice,suggesting that I call Barnett to get replacement as they had none in stock,and I called Barnett and was put on eternal hold and had enough of dat and decided,thankfully,to contact Chag's and was told bring bow in they could fix it just no guarantee that she would be ready today,most likely tomorrow!Hauled over to Chag's where Sammie was busy working on a nice bow,left my Barnett Crossbow and headed back to Mandeville,not expecting to hear from him today but lo and behold,he left message around 4:30 that bow ready to go!!!Wished I had asked him but no big deal as I have lotta tall grass and brush to clear from food plot(way overgrown from last year)and damn deer feeder acting up so probably gonna bow hunt Fri pm and bust it tomorrow and week end getting big plots ready for seeding and I typically have very fine plots and have been feeding nice herd of does,though no game cam activity thus far this year.Last year,I had a nice herd of does constantly hitting feeder and food plot and saw 6 and 8 pts roaming around!!!Being a die-hard duck hunter,tough to split time but want to bust it this bow season and hoping to stick one soon!!!Not sure how others faring but there are not that many bow hunters on my club and hope to get on a deer soon!!!
