yes, it is slow around here. \:\)
any one doing any shooting?
I had hoped to have been bowfishing by now but I've been too busy with my wife. we found out she had cancer. 'had' is hopefully the key word here. she had surgery last week and the doc believes he got it all. so now after her recovery maybe I can get back to shooting and bowfishing.

Have been shooting my longbow a few times a week. Got a ball target. It's really fun. My son and I take turns kicking it while the other one shoots. I will add your family to my prayer list.

Been shooting 1-2 times a day trying to tune a 55# Warf bow I put together last year. I think she's about ready to hunt. Next project this summer is an old 44# Groves that I plan to hunt with my ghillie suit that I've just about got finished. Cant wait for some of that action.

I have been building a few selfbows lately after taking a break from it for a while. Used to build dozens a year and it consumed me. Need to shoot more though. Like a friend used to say, " too much scraping and not enough shooting." Trying to shoot a few dozen arrows a day.

Hey Eddie C, yes I made it to Twin Oaks this spring. I grew up not far from there and Pappy and I used to shoot together quite a bit. We started building self bows about the same time. Twin Oaks puts on the best shoot anywhere in my opinion.
