Default Traditional First Shot Challenge Week 39

Samei(sh) as last week but fixed ranged of 19yds. Any position. Broadhead only. Target is a quarter sized X on any surface. Measure shaft edge to center of X.

19 yds...because it wasnt allowed last week and its a good odd prime number. Its 4 yards outside my limit. Prepare for the worst and pray for the best.

Mimic your hunting scenario to the best of your limitations. We all have them.

God bless. Good luck.


(It was either this or first posted LDP on Saturday)

Well I'll skip this one fellas. Heads are sharp and in the quiver. New targets and not tearing them up with my broadheads.

You might get the chance to fulfill this shot challenge on the real deal come Saturday.

I know I'm sure gonna try.

Just got back from Fort Worth and the Cowtown Bowmen's Iron Cowpatty shoot. Got 2nd in Trad division in a small field. Nice time. Was mainly an excuse to get in about 100 shots out of my new 70-lb bow. All that driving time got me to thinking about something that Briar might consider adding as a provision to his call. Any deer killed Saturday by one of our trad hunters wins next week's call. If more than one, maybe use shortest track as tie-breaker. If no deer, regular shot winner makes call for next week. I can propose this without conflict because I work Saturday and won't be able to make my first hunt until Sunday. Think about it, Briar; it's up to you.

Unfortunately we have corn piling up under the feeders. So many acorns and still pretty green here as well. But I will be here regardless. Maybe just sitting in the stand drinking a bud light and swatting the gnats. But I'll be at the ranch. I have an old target there but it will no longer stop a broadhead.

Im game. The LDP avenue was my first choice but I didnt think it would be appreciated...for such a reason as yours. Im still shooting this week, I had already shot yesterday by the time I posted the challenge. My first broadhead shooting session from my Blueridge was invaluable and encouraging...I was indexing yardage on the wrong wood grain on the riser!...Ill see today if my framing adjustment stuck.

Glad you like the idea, Briar, and were thinking along those lines anyway. Just seems somewhat appropriate for a one-time, opening weekend bonus override provision. Will still have the regular shot if everyone gets skunked.

I guess you may want to clarify if someone can post their first shot on the called shot and still win by killing a deer Saturday. It's what I was thinking, but still up to you, Briar. Otherwise, people may hold off shooting the regular shot.

I'll shoot mine here shortly. I've been busy and missed the last few FSC's. I shot terrible yesterday, so we'll see...

Well that went better than expected...all my broadheads are sharp and in quiver. I didn't wanna dull one of mine, but my son had left 3 150 grain Woodsman heads here out of a 6 pack he'd bought. I grabbed one of them that hasn't been sharpened yet and screwed it on. Looks like about 1.25". Now I'm gonna sharpen this head and put it in my quiver too!!

Nice shot, CRM! That arrow/broadhead combo definitely earned its place in the quiver!

I figured why not just use a quarter...

I have not been practicing at 20 for a couple weeks now, nor standing... so my first shot was 2.75" high. (Yes, with a broadhead)



I sat down at 16 on my porch and my 2nd shot with a feild point hit home

The broadhead I used for mine is now razor sharp and in my quiver. I'll try my best to get a LDP Saturday with the same head!!

Great shooting peoples!

TradTiger, et al...lets make first cervid down the trumps all...LDP has to be posted here and time harvested.. Not first posted LDP...but first tagged WT harvest. If no one posts an LDP, then default to target measurement.

Rabbit livin on the wild side and tempting fate shooting at a quarter with a broadhead.

I shot RH longbow Monday but was at 7" south and west...and my second shot went wild and I lost it in the scrub brush...still MIA. Two Trailmakers came out of reserve, sharpened and staged.

I shot LH on the recurve first today then RH on the longbow. Im submitting he LH since it was true first off. (Photos wont upload since I updated my iphone. File name isnt being accepted)

I used to take a screen shot of phone pics and resize to square for GS viewing consideration and upload speed. After iphone update, I just resize the original pic to square and it uploads fine now. Thankfully less steps.

Not seeing any LDPs, y'all. Is CRM's great 1-1/4" target shot going to win the call?

Featherflinger put a buck down yesterday morning but I guess he isn't participating in the challenge.
