Love how you see the balloon disappear then hear the pop.
Good job Rick.

Your shooting is getting worse 2 shots on the bottle bomb and now 3 for a balloon! Just kidding, that is outstanding! I couldn’t shoot anywhere near that good with my compound...heck on a bad day maybe not even with open sights on a rifle!

Thanks Folks.

Jim Fetrow was/is a very good friend of mine, who passed away a short while back.

Though many won't know who he is, he was an archery icon.
He was an excellent bowyer in both laminated & selfbow building.
A world class arrow smith, flint knapper, and string builder.

He was a fantastic shot, and he was a heavy bow aficionado.

He wrote many articles for a lot of the archery magazines including Traditional Bowhunter, and has had a extremely positive influence on traditional archery & bowhunting for decades.

Although we never got to meet face to face, He & I talked about it a lot,
and had a close friendship for close to 30 years.
We spent a lot of time talking on the forums, in email, and on the phone,
and I cannot begin to describe just how much he helped me with my shooting over the years.

A Fetrow in distance is what we who knew Jim affectionately call 75 yards,
which was his point on distance with most of the bows he shot.

Rick
