    A hobby picked up at Pennsic

    Well I had some time on my hands and went up to the range with one of this guys bows http://www.elkridgearchery.com/index.htm
    Well that lead to the need to get me one. Than the number one girl said she would like to try so we went up to the range with a bow that fit her and that lead to me having to get another bow from Joe. Thank fully it was the last day when girl #2 and her mother decided they needed to give this shooting thing a try and Joe was out of bows that fit them. So they both will be trying it out at home to see how they like it than I am sure that we will be giving Joe a call for 2 more bows.
    The boy already has a nice long bow... He caught the bug last year and I got him a Bill Darr long bow this spring so he shot that for 2 weeks.
    I'll get some pics after I find the camera

    Those bows are fun to shoot. I tried one a long time ago. Get some flu-flu arrows and shoot aerial targets. Now that is fun.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I wouldn't know about that Steve, can't pull a bow. But sounds like a good time Chuck. Ya'all have fun and be safe.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Very cool. I've got some straw bales setup on the hill and everynow and then go and do a little shooting. Just a cheap bow I'm afraid, but fun, nonetheless.

    Looks like fun. Had several bows growing up, will have to check with my brother to see if he ended up with them.
