    My dad and I went hunting and we saw a raccoon, first off. It was a ways out and coming in. It was angling uphill and when it got close it was above us. The landowner had asked us to shoot some raccoons because they were becoming a nuisance on the farm. When I shot it looked like a good hit...

    This evening Dad and I walked out to a three or four acre piece of land right behind our house. We walked out there to re-cut my trails and look for deer sign. We cut our trails and started walking through some very thick thorns and grass. I started walking a little away from dad to spread...

    My Dad gave me a longbow when I was 3. I gave him a new Black Widow PLX osage a couple days ago. He set it up, went out and shot this guy. Dad and I both switched to 3 under this year after being urged by Rod to try it. Looks like it is going to work fine. Way to go Dad!:)

    Liam (my 9 year old) was really on tonight. We shot rounds of three from 15 yards. I shot my McKean and 3 Beman ICS Hunters, so we'd both be shooting off the shelf, barebow. This is a representative round of his:

    My seven year old shot before school this morning. Form was looking pretty good (from the waist up :) ) but he wanted it made clear that the sights are set for his brother and he was ignoring them! (That's why he's covering them with his hand.)

    I just had to share this with you guys. My dad just told me yesterday that he has shot his 5th. deer this year in Illinois....I believe it was 3 with a bow, one with a shotgun and one with a muzzleloader. This has been his best season by FAR and has kind of made up for those many years of...

    hey everyone, I was chatting with my dad last night. He mentioned wanting to get a hold of an inexpensive long bow in the 40-45 lb range. He said his other bows were just to much to pull. Any thoughts? MWC
