“Nothing clears a troubled mind like shooting a bow,” Fred Bear.
Do you practice shooting all year long?
Who else is still out checking trail cameras??
I miss shooting! Last week I went to fling some arrows and my rest wouldn't work 😭 I'm hoping today to get fix.
I've been having a hard time shooting lately with work, kids, life, and the lack of daylight, but I can shoot at all until my now is fix :(
It all comes down to this. Spend time in the great outdoors with friends doing things that make you happy.
A throwback to when I started bowhunting . These were shot from a @martin_archery
compound. My very first deer was a 13" wide 8 point. I still remember it like yesterday, I was with my father standing in the brush below a large field when they filed by one at a time. We were just strolling through the woods as he taught me about decoding deer sign. We froze when the first deer passed by in bow range. One by one they trotted by 7 total, each one close to the one ahead. At the tail end of the line was my buck. We had seen him prior to archery season while we were spotting. That night I saw him I told my parents that's the deer I wanted. I drew my bow as he closed the distance trotting in a parallel line to our position. The buck saw me draw my bow and froze immediately broadside. I was already at full draw trying to settle my pin, just to reassure myself I asked my dad " how far is it?". He reassured my estimate of 30 yards. I hit that buck dead center in the heart. Those were the days for me before aiming for a double lung shot was norm. He piled up within 100 yards with a good trail of blood leading us to him. Those moments I'll never forget!!! So when you get a chance take a kid out hunting or fishing. You'll create life long memories!!!! @babewinkelman @cameronrhanes @martin_archery @hoytbowhunting @eastonarchery @spothoggarchery @trufirereleases #keephammering #getafterit #getsome #bowseason #archery #bloodtrail #heartshot
Exciting day for us to do a first time feature of the wildly talented photographer Nick Sulzer. We'll be featuring a few of our favorite Nick Sulzer pics on our feed.
