Default Started shooting today...

..........Getting ready for deer season,, went to fleet farm and bought a "the block" replica and started shooting. didn't do too bad for not having picked up my bow since October 2004. I made my own arrows last year and they are still working like champs. Anybody else starting to prepare??
It's starting to drive me crazy that i can't go hunting again until October 1st.

Althought i did buy a video camera and i'm hoping to get out in the woods and just sit and tape some of what i see. scout out the areas....

Oh yeah,, i shoot a Mathews Feathermax

Bought a new Switchback on Sat to replace my old PSE and have been shooting it every day so far... Im getting my arrows refletched this weekend as my whisper biskit did a number on them. No worries as my new drop zone wont touch them... Hoping to get out in the woods some in the next couple of weeks to see whats there.

Ordinarily I would have started shooting by now, but due to the fact that my string snapped I haven't been able to get out there yet this year. I'll be taking my bow in the 20th to have the strings and cables replaced.

I can't wait to get back out there.

I can't shoot a lot during the offseason unless I go out to our property on the mountain.

It's illegal to shoot in residential areas in Spokane County.

I enjoy shooting too, but I'd rather time slowed down a bit. It goes by way to fast for me.

I've been shooting everyday for 3 months now. About 100 arrows a day. 3 of us are getting prepared for a boar hunt in Florida, coming up in less than a month now. We are leaving Maine on July 5th, driving my truck 1500 miles to get there.

I've never shot so much or been this prepared for any hunting season before. But with traveling so far and paying for a hunt, I really want to be ready.

I hunt throughout the year and can’t afford not to practice regularly at home. We also have a 3D course at our bow club, on a farm, that offers excellent practice for the real thing. On Sundays some of my friends would be there and we enjoy the practice, fire and food together. Semi wild game running around provide extra entertainment. If for some reason you could not make it the previous Sunday be prepared for all kinds of funny remarks and attitude.

I've been shooting pretty much once a week since about January... I can't shoot where I live, its about a half hour to the club... During the winter, I shot tuesday nights indoors. Now, I pretty much do the 3D course every Sunday. I'm going to start picking up steam and try to get out at least twice a week now, and hopefully more when the season gets close.
