Archery [ 85 ]

Changing Gears on the Archery Front

Changing Gears on the Archery Front

Most, if not all, hobbies come with a built-in list of pros and cons. Some can be expensive, others can be time-consuming, and most tend to be a little of both. Archery is no different. A few years ago I decided that I wanted to get back into the sport. I hadn’t shot a bow in years but I was determined to make it happen. I wound up walking into a local archery shop with a few hundred dollars in […]

My Personal Best Followed By My Personal Worst

My Personal Best Followed By My Personal Worst

As soon as I drew the string back and settled into my anchor, I knew something was off. I could feel the tension in my back begin to slack, my sight pin moved erratically on the target face, and I had a tremendous urge to punch the trigger and hope for the best. There was a cascade of problems that I just couldn’t seem to fix. I tried adjusting my stance, adding tension in my back, adjusting the release in […]

Getting My Wife Involved With Archery

Getting My Wife Involved With Archery

Over the past several weeks, I’ve shared a few blog posts that focused on my daughter and I shooting archery together. We’ve both been having a great time at Stowe Archers, however, I’ve been feeling a bit guilty. While the two of us go to the archery club, my wife is usually back home with the new baby. She doesn’t get to see the joy on our daughter’s face when she shoots a 10. Actually, it goes deeper than that. […]

450 Round Archery Practice

450 Round Archery Practice

One Sunday, a couple of weeks ago, I was working at Stowe Archers. It was the day of our fist Paper Animal Point Series shoot and I was standing behind the kitchen counter, hoping that a crowd would come walking through the door. To pass the time, I was passively watching episodes of Nock On Archery that I had playing on the clubhouse DVD player. A tip segment pulled me out of my daydream and I watched John Dudley explain […]

Shooting a 450 Round With My Daughter

Shooting a 450 Round With My Daughter

Last Sunday I was in the mood for a little shooting. I packed up our bows and my daughter and I took a ride over to Stowe Archers. Knowing her well, I offered up a challenge. We were going to shoot a 450 Round and the winner would get a prize. If I won, I’d get a hug and a kiss. If she won, I’d have to buy her an ice cream on the way home. No matter the outcome, […]

Shooting The Bear Cruzer Lite

Shooting The Bear Cruzer Lite

It has been a week and a half since my oldest daughter became the proud owner of a Bear Cruzer Lite (In pink, of course). We’ve been out shooting a couple of times so far and it has been nice to see the bow in action. Size When it comes to the size of the Bear Cruzer Lite, I don’t think I could have asked for a better fitting bow for my daughter. As far as 6 year old girls […]
