S'now Its time For Archery

Snow had closed my course down for two days. so we had an afternoon free. we put the time to good use. Archery! Posture,upper body strength, breathing, aim, release and the bow all need some work.
The Northern Monkey had scouted out some land and on the walk in we found a dumped black plastic air vent. Target!
TNM shot ever tighter groups, while I couldn't even manage a loose association.
Luckily a sudden fart of wind was sent by the coyote god, and one of my arrows smashed the target!

TNM retorted with a 'tree splitter'.But still NIL POINT!
Showing another great example of th sheer dumb luck that has sustained me so far, another field point juddered home. Here you see me explaining to The Northern Monkey the traditional 'salute' used to remind the french that our archery skills are superior to theirs.
The bow is way too big for me,[I cant remember my draw from my days at the archery class'].
It's much more TNM's size so I shan't morn leaving it with him. After all, he needs the practice!!

Keep Warm

Lookin' good. Miss shooting in the snow, but back home the frozen ground usually skipped the arrows into nowhere.

Thanks for stopping by recently and just got my new designs out. Always appreciate feedback if you get a chance.

Adding a link to the Bushwacker on the sites.
Have a great week.

You may be interested to know that a friend of mine is a guide and escorted the (apparently) first ever Grizzly bear bow hunt that was successful (supposedly it was the 'most famous' American Bow Hunter). I have no idea of his name, but you might. It was a successful hunt and there was a DVD put out about it that you may be able to track down if interested.
