I won't start shooting until August 1st. I will then shoot pretty steady up to the seson and then once a week until the end. This site will idle along until the season approaches and then it will fire up.....

Shot indoors all winter. This will be my first summer without shooting league since I was a kid. (That was a long time ago)

I came home from a hunt in Montana last fall with a bad knee. Walking around the hills of Chilakoot does me no favors. Gotta have the knee in good shape by October so I'm gonna try to be good to it till then.

I've been shooting a little bit, but not as much as I should. Once turkey season is over I will start the process of buying a new bow.

My old bow is still making 6" groups at 40yds. Hopefully I can tighten that up. Also, I purchased some FOB's so thats something I'm looking forward to using also this year.

Been shooting all year, just more outside on walk through courses than inside since its getting nice out. Had a big problem with the bow and had to have her sent back to the factory for engineering to take a look at her. Draw mods were stripping the screws out and shredding the metal. That made a lot of noise. Should be back in 2-4 weeks. Then business will pick up again.

Shot a few arrows a few weeks ago. A little rusty, but not too bad. Hopefully I can get into my shooting routine in a few weeks.

Shoot Straight!

An actual FITA round is 40-50-60 meters. Where did you do that? I've always enjoyed the target round.

True DonBo, although I think a true FITA is 50-70Meters?... Thats why I shot the "American 600 Fita round".. they use the exact same target 122cm face... I just shot it in my back yard up at the cabin where you met me... I can shoot out to about 130 yards maybe more..

Just replaced my Biscuit with a new one, put one on daughters bow, and son outgrew his reach on his bow, going to use my old one till growth spurt is done. We got ALOT of tuning before we get into too much practice. On the bright side, just did a camo paint job on our 5yr old's bow, so he's lettin em fly.

I'm actually ashamed to say I haven't taken it out yet. Last year was my first year bow hunting and it was a blast! I need to get it out and get some more practice in.

Heat Checker you say that your son grew out of his bow. My soon to be wife really wants to get into shooting at targets just for fun. I'm looking at an inexpensive starter bow for her. Don't want to put too much $ down on it in case she doesn't like it as much as she thinks. Are you looking at getting rid of it? I'll put a post on the "for sale" section of Archery if you want to respond...thanks.

I bought a Bear Recurve three weeks ago.

What a learning curve.

So I am shooting.

We will see if I develop enough skill to take a White-tailed deer up to 20 yards by fall.

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
