First Summer Camping Trip

I took my boys out for a belated Father's Day camping trip (a tradition that we started last year) and we brought the bows and target. I had a couple of friends bring theirs and we enjoyed the sport of archery and some well cooked weenies and s'mores.

Preseason Practice

I've been out trying to eradicate the ground squirrel infestation in my front yard. As of today, I've taken out all three that I have drawn a bow on. Good practice and I'm looking out at it, if I can take a squirrel, deer should be no problem come November.

166 days and counting

Tag results were posted this last Friday and we drew te late season tag in the area we both hunted last year. We've got a couple of ideas on where to set up our base camp, so we'll use those as our starting point for scouting this fall.

It's been awhile since I've posted. Had a new cam and string out back on and it looks amazing. I've gone out and shot some, getting dialed back in. Sights are now set at 20, 30, 40, 50, and 70 yards. I  plan on getting closer, but will be set at 70 just in case. 

This will be my last "pre-season prep" post, since draw results are going to be announced today.

Hope everyone has a good Memorial Day weekend.

Cams on the way

Just got a call from the pro shop. The cam was ordered. From the sounds of it I'll just be waiting on my string to come in. It's going to take a little bit longer because I changed the black to white and they didn't have any in stock. Nice bit of good news this afternoon.

Mild Relief Today

I took my bow into the shop and there appears to be no damage to the limbs. I collected the money for my web site that I built and was able to order a new bowstring today. I'm going to add a little color and go with Black and Blue. Hopefully it looks good and I'll be shooting again in a couple of weeks.

Broke the golden rule

And dry fired my bow this afternoon! I was attempting to do a little maintenance, drew back with my fingers even through my release was right next to me. Now, I'm out of a bow for awhile. Hopefully the new cam and string isn't too much and the radio station I've designed the website for is pleased with my work. This just sucks because I switched to 100 grain points and was getting it dialed back in. I'm so mad at myself right now.
