O.K. guys and gals,this one is gonna be a simple 12 yd. shot. You can take it standing,sitting,laying on the ground facing it or away from it, standing on your head or however!LOL The target is in the pic below. And Bisch, I don't want to see a 8" round candle in yours either!LOL Closest to the tip of the wick. And if the wind isn't a factor, maybe light it for effect. Ya'll have fun!

That's a cool idea Trad Doc! I like it. Before I read your instructions I was already thinking about one of those big holiday candles my wife has. Just as well,she probably would not understand why I had to shoot her christmas decorations anyway. Well, I'll just have to steal one of the birthday cake candles (heck, that'll make me one year younger on my next B-day).

I was thinking about a candle shot last week . That's funny.

Yes, center of shaft to the wick, and no candles with a wellrope sized wicks( I thought about that myself to use after showing you guys and gals the b-day candle). huntinpool, I would use that old saying about Great Minds Think Alike, but the use of my feeble mind would make it awful lopsided!

This thread or threads has jinxed the weather here. it seems like we have beautiful days all week, then every Friday afternoon, here comes the wind and or rain.
I think i need a handicap for shooting moving targets each time.
how bout it??

That will work, long as we get everybody partisipating! Thats the whole idea is to have fun at something.

OK - how about this for a handicap; Tie one hand behind your back and pull the string with your teeth. That should handicap you real good (HAHA).

O.K. folks, just finished mine. The wind was still enough to light the candle, really helped seeing it back there for the shot. Good luck to all of ya.

Well, I didn't have a birthday candle...looked the kitchen over-even looked in a friends kitchen-so I used something comparative, a small candy cane! For those who may notice the background in my pic...I did not take the shot in the house! I just brought the target in to take the pics;)b

There are some great shots so far this week, including but not limited to Doc's and Rick's. You guys really have the touch! Here are the pics of my shot:

Here is Deb's:

RedDevil
05-21-2010, 09:30 PM
Deb's was about 5/8" from the tip of the wick! She's good!

RedDevil
05-21-2010, 09:32 PM
And here's mine. It's a real blow to the confidence to shoot with Deb and Arvin!

RedDevil
05-21-2010, 09:34 PM
Oh, so I'd say Deb's was a little closer to 3/4" to the middle of the shaft.

here is my feeble attempt. I wish it was last shot friday. That's when I am on.

Great shootin everybody!! I think Deb has it this week. bowtecmike, if you want yours posted e-mailem to me and I will see if I can resize and postem up for you.

Deb

I suspect there will be a few more posts before a final decision is reached. If not, I may have to surrender the field as we will be leaving for the LB shoot in FW. I do have a shot planned, tho and if the Red Devil can show up at my house early on Friday with her camera we can still play. if not I will step down. Red Devil, you do not understand the meaning of "Blow to your confidence" untill you have shot a few rounds with Lisa Freeman or Shana Wilson. Thats what I get to do next week end. Please pray for me.

Sorry I did not get to play. I was on the road to Post, Tx yesterday, then back to Abilene for the TBOT shoot today. There were some great shots this week. Hopefully I'll be back next week. I had a great time in Abilene but the shoot was VERY tough.

Great shots guys!!! Can't wait for next week when i can play again :)

Deb

Corncob?
No, no corncob. An empty toilet paper tube. Take your pocket knife and cut a 1" slit on each side. Then fold it up to create a small flat surface. Use this to fasten the tube to your target. Step back 17 yards and shoot into the tube. Try not to touch the sides. I'll try to get Red Devil over to post some pics. New thread pending. Thanks for your votes.

I won't get to play this week as we will be leaving for the lb shoot. But that shouldn't stop me from thinking up the shot. Hope Red Devil can come by today or tomorrow to post pics of the shot.
