Default Abilene Tbot match March 24

Abilene Bowhunters will be hosting a TBOT match on March 24th this year. Will be an excellent match with hunting style shots and a even a moving target. In the past there had been some talk of the shots being a little on the long side, these grumbles were heard and addressed, so if you weren't crazy about the set in the past, come on back, it is going to be a different match this year.

Texas Traditional Archery will have a booth with his excellent bows and others are welcome. If you are interested in having a booth PM me.

Also we are going to set a Bow/knife, trading/selling blanket for any shooters and guest wanting to do a little swapping and selling. We already have a few bows and knives ready to go on there and would love to be able to put more out. There is no cost to put your bows or knives out, so bring them and bring some money, no telling what you might find.

See you there

Jerome Hargus, we shot together 20 or so years ago at a traditional match in Abilene, I still remember you center twelved a spinning turkey. Haden is my son, I think y'all have shot together several times. I had gotten out of archery for quite a while, and then restarted about 3 years ago

Ah Yes.
I remember you Jerome. Haden too.

Maybe we can hook up, and shoot together if I get to make it.

P.S.

Put your name in your profile, and you won't confuse us old fellers so much.

It was pretty impressive. The turkey was on a record player, I remember it looking like it was set on 45, but is was probably 33. Either way it was spinning pretty good

I actually don't remember the spinning turkey shot. (kinda sorta)

I've shot so many tournaments with novelty shots of one kind or another, that they kind of all start to run together over the years, plus I'm getting old. LOL

I do know, that many years ago I was shooting my 98# Martin recurve.

You guys who have never shot the Abilene range should really try to make this one. It's a real treat.

I think it's the best range in the state.

X2, but I'm partial to it since it's my home territory.

One things for sure - you can't possibly ever be disappointed with the variety of terrain, and type of shots you will get to see, unless you just don't like that sort of thing.

Here is a reminder and info bump. This is going to be an excellent shoot. I was able to take a sneak peak (no shooting though :-) ) at the course today and the guys have set an excellent range. Remember it is a Saturday only shoot but if you get there early I don't think shooting 3 rounds will be an issue, so it will be worth your time. Also don't forget this will be the last TBOT shoot before Vanderpool and should be a great primer for that match. Lots of hunting type shots. Even a flying turkey. Concessions at he range and don't forget we are going to have a couple of tables for a knife/bow swap if you want to try to sell or swap something. Thanks
