  1. Camp Kitchen
    Heart has always been my favourite cut on any animal. I happened to find a deer heart rolling around so decided to try a new (to me) way of cooking it. First the heart was soaked for two days in brine in the fridge. Then simmered in broth for three hours. I was lazy cleaning the gristle and...
  2. Watering Hole
    I retired some time ago and have since fallen into a rhythm. That rhythm has a couple dogs and a Tomcat involved in my life. I go about my days with no schedule except to make sure my boys have food and water and attention. Meet the Tommy cat, Woody the Jack Russell and Captain Morgan the...

    I mean?...here I scored this beauty of a 1/4 century old custom built for someone else Longbow (and for a real reasonable price) and then?...felt like I lucked out big time when I discovered some raw wood shafts I had on hand tuned great off it with my desired 160gr points (cause I gotta 1/2 doz...

    Our little archery group http://www.fieldandrovingarcherysociety.co.uk/ held a shoot at the home of one of our number this weekend. Our host, Brian, was inspired by his love of archery history and historical accounts of medieval archery to build a genuine earthen shooting Butt. OK, on the...

    Now I am nine weeks out from my heart surgery and it's time for an update. My eight week checkup with my cardiologist and pcp went very well. Still three weeks more with the life vest defibrillator and then a 2d echo. Then should be ready for cardio rehab I know I won't need a defibrillator...

    Just for kicks, I decided to wear a heart rate monitor while shooting a league FITA 450 round (45 arrows, 18 meters, 40 cm 10 ring FITA target). What I found was that my heart rate increased from the mid to high 70's at rest between ends, to first the mid 80's, and finally the mid 90's. It was...

    I started a thread recently regarding advice on finding the stiffest 23" ILF riser available for the beastly 54#/25" BB2 limbs I have been playing with. Initially tried them on a Best Moon and grew concerned I wasn't really 'using' them to their full sweet spot at my just over 29" draw, the...

    Looking for a real simple stick on pin sight for a recurve.

    For the life of me, I cannot locate this sight. A very good friend of mine used to make a bracket for the Merrill Heart Shot sight. He turned me onto the sight, and I have had absolutely zero luck in locating one. I know a lot of folks just don't like them, but it would warm my heart to locate...

    I felt a little cruddy this past weekend thought it was pollens in the air but it probably had more to do with the World Field Archery Championships in Germany starting. And there's still part of me that wishes I was there competing. I felt better after I got on to my home range and shot some...

    Had my triple bypass in February. I ve shot my 55# Hummingbird and backed off a bit to my Dalaa at 36#, form issues. No pain and I shot almost everyday. Being 64, I m now up to 4-5 bike rides a week at 10 miles per ride. Feel better than I have in some 15 years. Get tired when I dont get enough...
  12. Hunting Camp
    I noticed that world champions Ty Pelfrey and Larry Yien both described themselves as hunters "at heart" (Ty) or in origin (Larry) on MBBII. Both gave "to improve my hunting" as their initial reason for getting involved in target shooting. I think that's pretty much in line with what the...

    Larry Hatfield forwarded this to me. It a very simple technique that could save your life someday. It takes a minute or so to view but it's worth seeing. It is in Power Point Slideshow Format. I will see what I can do about making it available in another format for those of you who do not...
  14. Faith and Fellowship
    Some of you will know Richard Allen, archery in the school coach, teacher, police chaplain and friend of mine here in Kentucky. He has been scarce around here lately but he and I talk and I know that his wife is undergoing a heart surgery in the morning and could use our prayers. I don't...
