Well now that we have an archery section.................

Some of you may have noticed I havent been hanging around this awesome site much latley. This is because before I was into LR shooting I was very much into archery. Recently the archery bug has been reviving itself. I have been pursuing many archery tournaments latley and practicing every day after work and on weekends. It is my goal to get back into good shooting shape and in the next couple of years take a stab at professional archery. Hence the reason I havent been here much. Just a lack of time. I am heading to Redding this next weekend for a 4-101 yard 3D tournament. Maybe I will see some of you fellow sliver slingers there.

I may do about the same thing. If I can break 1K with a rifle this Fall then I will most likely switch back to bow hunting and see if I can break 100 yards. There are some new bows out that are very fast. Then there are some very accurate and fairly fast bows. Same paradigm, speed vs accuracy.

Good luck on your endeavors.

Agreed. While my shooting is not to the level of yours Meichele, I did get out this week and used my bow for the first time in probably 15 years [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Ya, long time. Had alot of fun!

So that's got me now thinking about upgrading some of the accessories on my bow. The hunting zone around the city is bow hunting only, and there's some big bucks out there.

So along with my short LR goals for this year, I think I'll try to get out with the bow a bit in the early season.

buffalobob , I was shooting a Bowtech Guardian today set at 30.5" draw , 73lbs maxed out shooting a 306gr arrow at 326fps. This bow is awsome , super smooth almost zero recoil and it is very accurate. I was shooting into a 4" circle consistantly at 80yds with a 4x lens in a high end target site.

I'm not sure I would try to shoot a critter past 80yds , I practice to 100yds but their is just to much that can happen while the arrow is on its way
