    Well i went to a range that is buried in the hills here in Scott County, Indiana.

    Cabin Fever is the name if any of you guys are ever in town.

    It was a blast!!!!
    Absolutely addictive!!!!

    Had 19 targets on about a 2 or 3 acre trail.
    Shot uphill, downhill, across clearings, fields, and streams.
    Distances of 10yds to 60 or more.
    Bear,Fox,Turkey, and Dear Targets.

    I feel good only lost two arrows.

    Went twice yesterday, and I can't wait to go again

    Years?????????

    Done spent thousands restoring bows chasing that perfect every time shot without sights.
    An I'm not gonna give up.

    There is something to be said for the ancient Martial Artist.

    I myself since the age of 4
    ( Thanks to my father 31 yrs in the service of furthering the knowlege of martial arts - 10 yrs published articles )

    I have studied every form of martial arts, & weapon- including every bow I can get my hands on without sights.

    I believe to be a modern martial artist you must use every science .

    Use, respect, & understand your heritage, but move on when your skill has attained a marksmans level.

    3D is such a blast but it does get a little expensive when you start losing arrows. And when you start taking your kids its twice as expensive. But it is so much fun watching your kids or nephew or neice or neihbors kid crack a deer at 25yards right in the kill zone. I would rather walk around with my boys than shoot myself.:noidea: Kinda strange huh. I used to shoot alot of instinctive shooting but found that I do not have enough time to put into it to stay competetive. I looked up High Performance Archery and it's about 81 miles form me. What all do they sell in their bow lines? Do they have a range there? I sometimes take little road trips to other archery shops. :peace:
