Not really - it's just that Kansas being completely flat that we have to take some really long shots. So long that it is often day when we let loose the arrow and night by the time it gets to the animal so the illuminated nocks come in handy
I was shootin arrows one day in the backyard of my grandparents house at my block. It was like my 10th time shooting a bow, and of course my first arrow went astray. I searched for about 15 minutes and never found it. This was at the beginning of january, and my grandfather called me this week to tell me he finally found my arrow!
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
