No Threat to Wildlife

September 2nd, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

… nor to anyone’s berth on the archery team in 2008, either.

BUT, after a twenty-year break (give or take a bit), I am finally shooting a bit again. [Thanks to an incredibly generous neighbor with an extra bow.]

So, after tuning the sight, and tuning the shooter, I have gone from “not reliably hitting the backstop” at ten yards to “reliably hitting the target bag, some evidence of shot clustering” at ten yards. (Bullseye? What’s that?)

Deer have no reason to fear … yet. It’s a good thing my family is not relying on my marksmanship to put meat on the table.

And my neighbor’s trick of bagging bear this way? To quote Larry the Cucumber: “Nope. Not gonna do it.” (“Aw, c’mon. It’s for the kids.”)
