Finally my son has arrived!
Sunday June 5th, 2016 Woke up and went to the archery range. Had it to myself since it was 6am. Shot the course, made some tweaks and I cannot tell enough how much the 2016 Hoyt Carbon Defiant is their best bow to date.

Alicia did not use an epidural and was 12 days over due so it wasn't fun to witness. My wife is a trooper man. Anyways, 9lb and 6oz, 23" long, and baby boy and healthy as a horse. We couldn't be happier and feel so blessed to be parents, what a gift from God. Thursday June 9th, 2016 Taught the morning classes at the box. Trained and headed to the hospital to check on momma and little man. He's in the NICU for possible infection, hooked up to an IV and getting some major antibiotics. I'm a little worried, hope all is well and always trust God so we shall see what tomorrow brings. 1.

Sunday June 12th, 2016. Starting researching Nevada 161-164 for archery season, lots of info to sift through. Tristen is at the hospital until Wednesday when his antibiotics course finishes... Cannot wait to have him home.
