The big kids had other commitments so it was just Leo, myself and my shooting buddy Mike. We hopped over the divide and shot the bitterroot archers shoot in Cataldo Idaho.



Just working on hitting a consistent anchor and getting some semblance of alignment.



Not bad for a 7 year old - but try explaining to a 7 year old that a "good" shot doesn't always hit the spot. Leo improved a ton as the day went on his rounds were 15-23-43-60. He was bummed when we hit target 40 ;-)



It was a great day in the woods with kids and friends. I shot a fairly good round with just 3 5s over 40 targets. The 5s came from bad yardage errors I need to spend some time wandering with a range finder again.

Great day indeed! Does that backpack hold enough snacks to get through the day? :D

Very cool Matt and some great shooting. Taking my little boy tomorrow. He just got home last weekend after 3 1/2 years in the Army. Of course he's big enough to pack me around. 8" taller and about 120lbs heavier. Probably the mailman's kid but he's been around long enough I guess I'll keep him.

Very cool. I remember when my son was that little and loved going to shoots. Now he is 17 and archery is not "cool" to him.:)

I hope he comes back to it someday.

Sensible fellow, Leo, wears footwear. Looks like a great open KSL stance in the first picture. Young enough to pull it off. :)

Matt, if you don't mind me asking, what bow is your boy shooting? I have a g-son who turns 7 this week. I have been looking around for a wood bow for him. He's been shooting a fiberglass bow for a while that his dad bought for him. He needs a real bow now. Thanks.
God bless, José
