Actually got my bow out just this past weekend and started flinging arrows. To my surprise after only a few shots I was back to shooting decent groups at 40 50 and 60 yards!!! I would never shoot at an animal at these distances but I find that the more I shoot at long distance the easier it is to drill the target at the normal 25 and 35 yard shots. I aint gonna lie I am itching bad to get back out in the woods. Just bought my first Millenium lock on stand monday and got it hung in a great spot I hope. May go sit one evening on it to just watch the deer to kinda calm my need to be out there. I have the " hunting bug" early this year for some reason

I usually don't get the fever until late august... my kids keep me way too busy to think about shooting right now..

I try to fling a couple of arrows whenever I can, but have started this year with a 101st from bowtech. I hope to have the bow and shooter tuned in soon, since I want to try to make the 3d shoots at Grenada.

I have already been shooting a little bit with my Hoyt (for sale by the way), but I am planning on purchasing a new bow the first part of July so I'm not going to get real serious until then.
Score one for the little guy!

I'm going to try ro make the ASA Qualifier at Grenada this weekend with my new Bowtech 101st Airborne :D .

teacher, I had been a Mathews man, but I think that I have converted to Bowtech. I said that I wasn't going to get a new bow unless it had the roller instead of a bar slide.

Most years I start shooting around the first part of July but this year I'm not sure, haven't got the fever yet.

Didn't make the ASA shoot, putting lines back up. But I did get to go to Algoma and practice at Richey's archery range. They told me that they were planning to have a big shot at the end of the month.
