    does any one ever have a conversation w/your bow or arrows when things are not going right?????

    I was shooting the other day when this fruit loop guy, he kept telling his arrows they needed to do their part......and to work WITH him, not against.....it was actually kinda disturbing.......:biggrin1:

    I dont think there is a company w/a large enough bank account to make a bow that could stroke all of your ego.....:pound:

    Everything done with mental telepathy. Usually goes something like this

    Now Bowman, you just spelled fruit loop in the same color as your bow. Are you telling us you have a gay bow? I guess if it shoots good it doesn't matter. Now that I think about it I do talk to my hunting arrows right before I put them on the nock. I also give them a good luck kiss. I don't think I've ever talked to bow, however. I once gave it a little discipline and gave it the drop after a bad shot at an outdoor 3d shoot. That was a long time ago. I've since learned to control my emotions.

    Ummm. Did you happen to notice if he started to shoot better after he talked to his arrows. Just curios. I'd never try something that crazy. And neither would I.Or me either.

    Well maybe I need to try that approach, especially since Bowman found it disturding maybe I should try this to distract the competion around me.:rockon: I wonder if something in this style will work for me? To think I've been trying to be curtious to other shooters around me.:doh:
