Okie Dokie Boyz & Gurlz. :)

For your "First Shot Friday" 04-02-2010 - Here's the shot. :eek:

Milk jug pig at 17 yards. :cool:

Pig must be facing to your right. :p

Place a 3/4" dot directly below the ear on the seam of the jug as you see pictured here.

Closest to the center of the dot wins the prize. ;)b

Tubby
03-28-2010, 10:23 PM
Seeing as how the "dot" that we're aiming at is on the EDGE or CORNER of the jug, and the "pig" must be facing to the right... That makes it a little more difficult to keep the jug placed in shooting position. :confused: I may have to get a little creative.. :p This is gonna be fun! ;)b

Question ye ole pig target guru... Can we fill the jug up with water just for "special effects"? :eek: :D It'll be a lot cooler if we can!! :cool:

Good luck tomorrow folks. :)

Tubby, you can fill it with whatever you desire.

Position of the jug is however you want it as long as it is facing right, and the shot is taken from 17 yards away.

I may stick pencils in mine for legs, and shoot it standing on the ground.

I have a problem.
I ain't got no empty milk jug and if'n I did it would only be 1/2 gal.
Maybe I could draw a hog head on paper and shoot it with a Ruby wood tipped with a stone point.

I don't know about you guys in Georgetown or San Angelo, but that empty plastic jug is going to get blown into the next county North of here before I can draw on it tomorrow.:eek:

Well Here is my "first shot" for today at the milk jug pig. Looks like I do not win the prize again but it was fun.

The first pic is one from my brush blind, 17 yds away:

155815

The second is a close up that shows how bad my shot really was:

155816

Rick, were you shooting out of a tree stand on the top two arrows? If so, that was a cool idea. I think you need to reload your video; nothing happens when you try to click on it.

See y'all next week and good luck to everyone else,

Bisch

RickBarbee
04-02-2010, 09:35 AM
I got it fixed now Bisch. I got a little ahead of myself.

No I was standing on the ground. I just stuck two arrows in the target to hold the jug in place.

You got me beat.

I can't wait to see what is picked for next Friday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bisch, I had thought about doing a shot from elevation, but decided against it, because there would be to many who want to play, that would not be able to do it in their yard.
Trying to keep it fairly simple.

That's kind of what I was thinking too but if you did it on your own and it wasnot part of the called shot I guess it would be OK as long as it was 17yds.

And so far all of the TBH shooters seem to be pretty equal in their artistic abilities (or lack there of).:eek:

And yes Terry, see how much better Martha shoots with YOUR arrow?

It has nothing to do with the fact that she has actually practiced every evening this week.

OK I don't drink much milk so a 1 gallon jug is hard to come by at our home. I used a Cottage Cheese container - much smaller!!! Any how first shot (with the widow I might add) Shot at 17 yards...I didn't have a tape measure handy so I used my arrow.. it has 4" fletch on it.

My pig came up from Florida. It was an OJ container. The shot on the right was the first. The second shot was with one of my new arrows that I picked up from Bob yesterday. http://discussions.texasbowhunter.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=852&pictureid=6165

Great stuff guys and gals! I wish I could have been able to play the last couple of weeks, I've been traveling for work and it is cutting down on my shooting time. Also the time change hurt it too. It's dark when I leave for work and when I come home I am consumed with Daddy duties, etc.... Plus it has been three weeks since I have been to Flea Ranch, which is a shame.

No poak chops for me tonight.
Shot a stone point that I had put on a broken wood and the thing was about 150grs lighter than my good arrows.
Aimed low, hit way high but the arrow flew good.
The tip got all the way through 3/4" plywood and only broke off and ear.
Tells me what I wanted to know about how tough stone points are anyway.

I think you should be awarded extra points (or distance deduction) just for attempting to shoot your stone point. And another bonus for having MADE said point!

Muzzlebreak,

One thing interesting in your pictures...I don't think you could have hit that plywood with either a field point or a broadhead and not break your arrow. In fact, you may think about using it the next time you come across that stinkin tiny little bionic armadillo again.;)b

That was my first shot but i didn't want you to see that it was 20" above where i was looking. Still have some tuning to do but sure like the feel of these new SKY double carbon and foam limbs.

Aha! Sounds like my last Friday shot, but mine was due solely to not having shot an arrow since Holliday, lol.
I am admittedly ignorant about any bow/limbs not made of some kind of wood, but I know you are a master of archery technology, so good luck with your new limbs (it sounds really high-tech to me!). Hey...how about trying one of Arvin's self-bows? ;)b

04-02-2010, 08:02 PM
Not my best display of shooting, but atleast I gave it a go.

The orange nock is my arrow, the other arrow is my girlfrinds first shot with her wheels. She has not shot her bow is a while, and saw all the fun I was having so she asked if she could play along. I said sure, so she did.

P.S. - She is the artist that drew the pig, I could not do that.

Didn't get a chance to post my shot yesterday. This time, no more eloquent verbosity to distract and hide my sucky shooting skills. 0-3 record, but ain't giving up and can't wait til next week!

Anyway, here's the view from ~17 yds:

ROFLMAO Equin...It's that dad gum "derisive arrow" again (and it appears to have ended up in the same place it landed last week).

There's nothing more annoying than a derisive arrow in my book, but there MIGHT be a way to outsmart it.

Try moving your target 6 inches to the left next time.:D

Hey Equin, that arrow on the ground in the picture looks like it has vanes on it. Unless you are shooting off an elevated rest you might want to seriously consider going to feather fletching on your arrows.

Bisch,

There was no animosity, ill will, hurt feelings, or anything else at all negative intended.

Some ribbing, yes. I really DO love Equin's vocabulary and use of the English language.

I guess I also need to keep my bent sense of humor to myself, and will try to do so in the future.

I didn't notice the vanes in the pic. You're probably right.

I really am looking forward to the autographed pic from Rick too.:)

No worries, Dusty! Never felt slighted in the least. Heck, I thought it was kind of funny, 'cept if I move it to the left next time, I'm afraid the next arrow will land "disparagingly" to the right. I mean, it's enough that I have to put up with those left-leaning, scornful derisive arrows, but to add some right-leaning, insolent disparaging ones to the mix will be the end of me!

Bisch, you're absolutely right. It is a vaned arrow, albeit a derisive one. This time, I shot my lighter weight, shelf-less Siege Work Creations self-bow just for kicks. So I shoot it off my bow hand. The feathered arrows are a little shorter than those vaned ones. So I figured the longer vaned arrows would be under-spined enough for the archer's paradox flex. Plus, I was too lazy to look for my bow glove to keep the feathered fletching from cutting up my hand like it did the last time. Truth is, I have a mix-match/mis-match of arrows at home, most of which I'm afraid aren't properly spined for my two traditional bows. Only ones I had that shot the best were Terry's (Rubydog's) wood arrows, but thanks to my terrible shooting, I managed to lose and break 'em all!

That is an old boot box that has a ceramic santa in it. It was the best I could do with what I had in the garage. Had I rigged it up with arrows holding the bottle up, my brain would have triggered in on the nock and I would end up shooting at it.

Oh well. I still think, by looking at the diagram, that I would have hit the pig just not sure if I would have killed it.
