Archery [ 68 ]

Red Wing Hunter

Red Wing Hunter

On May 23, 1962 my grandparents walked into George’s Archery Shop in Philadelphia. At the time both of my grandparents were avid archers and my Grandmother was in the market for a bow. As the story goes, she searched through the inventory of Red Wing Hunters and selected one in particular to bring home. I wish there was more of the story to share but details are sparse. My grandmother thinks that George’s Archery Shop was located on Aramingo Ave. […]

Finding Flaws at Close Range

Finding Flaws at Close Range

This weekend Pennsylvania was hit with snow. It came down fast and furious on Saturday, making travel a bit difficult. When Sunday rolled around the weather wasn’t bad but my little front wheel drive car left me feeling as though I was stuck in the house. I wanted to take a ride over to Stowe Archers but the thought of climbing a snow covered hill brought back memories of last year when I went sliding down the hill, backwards. Having […]

That’s a Technical Foul!

That’s a Technical Foul!

One day we’ll look back and laugh at the time I got shot in the eye… Monday nights at Stowe Archers is reserved for a weekly Youth Program. Anyone under the age of seventeen is welcome to come out to the club and use our indoor range, free of change (equipment is available also). The program has become rather popular and a handful of the more active club members also turn out (some to bring their kids, others to lend […]

Running for Vice President at Stowe Archers

Running for Vice President at Stowe Archers

A few weeks ago, I found myself in a bit of a bind. I spent the morning sitting in a tree and took what I thought was a solid shot at a doe. I was unable to find my arrow and spent over an hour turning up every leaf in the vicinity. Fearing that my arrow was sticking out of a deer somewhere on the property, I did the only thing I could think of, I reached out for help. […]

We Should Have Ourselves a Coon Shoot!

We Should Have Ourselves a Coon Shoot!

Over the past few months my life has been especially hectic. Between my wife’s school schedule and my work schedule, I haven’t had a whole lot of time to myself. It seems like if I’m not working, I’m taking care of children – sometimes I even do both at the same time. Pistol shooting has been a complete bust this season. Archery, on the other hand, has been something I’ve been able to do when random bits of free time […]

Stowe Archers Monday Night Youth Program

Stowe Archers Monday Night Youth Program

Having been a member of Stowe Archers for almost a year now, I’m well aware of their popular Youth Program. On Monday nights, throughout the school year, Stowe Archers opens up the clubhouse and invites kids ages 17 and younger in to shoot. There is no cost for attending, although donations are appreciated, and equipment is available for anyone that does not have their own. Instruction is available for first-time archers (or anyone that needs it, all you have to […]

2014 Cilsanws Challenge

2014 Cilsanws Challenge

A couple of days ago I was scrolling through my Facebook Timeline, trying to kill some time, when I came across a couple of photos from Jesse Broadwater. The photos showed archers shooting a rather extreme course with severe uphill and downhill shots. A day after Jesse Boradwater posted his photos, I stumbled onto a link on Archery Talk pointing to the very recently released videos from the event. I connected Vimeo to my Roku Player and spent the afternoon […]

I think it may be time to upgrade my arrows

I think it may be time to upgrade my arrows

I like to think of myself as an off the shelf kind of guy. I don’t own much specialized equipment and pride myself at being able to perform fairly well with what some might consider middle of the road equipment. I don’t have a ton of disposable income so anything I buy has to be both affordable and quality (which is harder and harder to find these days). For an all-around archery setup, I went with an Elite Pulse, Gold […]

Wapiti Archers of Pennsylvania

Wapiti Archers of Pennsylvania

The weekend before last I found myself with free time. A four year old daughter and wife in nursing school doesn’t lend itself to many open weekends, so when Sunday rolled around and I had absolutely nothing to do, I jumped at the opportunity to take my bow out and do some shooting. I’ve been talking about making a trip out to Wapiti Archers for the past several months but just haven’t been able to find the time. Coincidentally, this […]
