Default Congrats and condolences to Lawrence @ Accurate Archery

First off Iíd like to say congratulations to Lawrence for being the master of his craft for so many years and working on every bow Iíve owned since the clock of time turned to 2000. Last Saturday was his last day at accurate archery, Sunday marked his first day of retirement.

It also marked another special milestone for my friend, it found him on stand, waiting for the buck heís been chasing for the past 3 years. Up until Sunday he just kept teasing me with trail cam pics, then Sunday morning he texted me some more pics of the buck, only this time he was also in the pics!







Again, congratulations Lawrence!

Unfortunately this buck is deceiving even in death. Like my buck last fall, pictures do not do his buck justice, and if you arenít paying attention the mass will slip by your eye. When he texted me the pics I knew right away he tagged a monster, I think I was more aware of that than Lawrence was.

Today I had time to go see Lawrence, and I brought my tape measure with me. The inside spread is over 20Ē, the main beams are 23-1/2 and 24-1/2, longest brow tine is 10Ē and longest g2 is 12Ē, 16Ē in abnormals and a whopping 44Ē of mass, his buck stretched the tape right around the 190Ē mark, congrats Lawrence, my deepest condolences you didnít realize that before you decided on a euro mount for your 190Ē archery buck!!!





Donít worry buddy, Iíll have you covered

Lawrence doesnít have an account here, but I know heís going to be lurking, I told him I was going to post a thread for him, so if you ever had the bow whisperer work on your bow, bows a good time to thank him for his years of service and congratulate him on his fine achievement award presented to him by Mother Nature herself!

Thank you Lawrence for all your help over the years, congratulations on the magnificent whitetail, and I wish you the very best in the years to come my friend.

That buck is just like Lawrence, quietly going about exceeding expectations! He’s the best bow tech I’ve ever met and a great guy to boot! Congrats to you sir!

That is a fantastic deer! Huge congrads to him. After trying to figure him out for years, likely very satisfying (and a little sad) that he has finally met him up close and personal. Would be very interested to hear the whole story, if Lawrence would be willing to share.

Just looking at those pictures on the PC today instead of on the phone - I can see what you mean, Kurt505. Look at that long, lumpy nose too - quite a bruiser! (Referring to the deer, not Lawrence!)

Lawrence had his buck green scored by an official, pretty much bang on with what I had him at.





Congrats again buddy!
