I have been shooting at 10 yds in my basement nearly daily since I bought my bow in January. I need as much practice as I can get before my first archery hunts this fall. I might give turkey a try with my bow yet this spring, but it will depend on if I get a chance to shoot more at 20+ yards before I go turkey hunting.
This past weekend, I had my arrows shortened and my bow re-tuned. I like the difference that it made.
Despite needing lots more practice, my fall archery seasons still can't get here quick enough!
Done and done. I've been practicing all winter, i was shooting in a league, and shooting at home. My set up is ready for the fall. I have to wait till Aug though, I guess thats only 4 more months well maybe 5, its at the end of Aug. Thinking about getting out and try turkey hunting with it though if i could ever find some time.
It was hard to do but I finally retired my 12 year old darton. I had a lot of great hunts/memories with that bow. It did not take me long to get over it though.
I picked up a new Darton DS3800 and boy does that sucker shoot. It's amazing how far bows have come over the last 10 years. Smoking fast, quiet, no vibration, If any of you are looking at getting a new bow this year I would highly recommend you shoot one and see for yourself.
I have been shooting every chance I can get in the back yard and can't wait to try the 3d shoots this summer.
I have done everything possible to get my kids involved in hunting. Every time out whether it be scouting, camping or during the actual hunt, I will challenge them to find their way back without using any electronics (GPS). Also without a compass. They know by now that I am going to challenge one of them, so right off the bat when leaving our vehicle or camp they will start picking out land marks to help them out. Makes me and them feel confident that if we were to somehow separate that they...
