I have been there before. It was a loooooong time ago though. I dumped my motorcycle over in the parking lot when the kick stand didn't get set right!!!

Yeah, I probably aught to use directions!

Abilene Bowhunters Range Location.
Take Buffalo Gap Road south (FM 89) to Buffalo Gap. You will weave through town a bit to a sign for the Abilene State Park. Take that road, FM 89 west 5.7 miles, past the State Park and then past Lake Abilene. Just past Lake Abilene, about 1/2 mile and the archery range is on the left.

Default Abilene Bowhunter posted originally Jerome Hargus.

Posted originally by Jerome:
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

I'm pretty sure I'll make it. Gotta hit the ranch for work on a pole barn after the shoot though so I'll get one round.

It’s weird. It hurts to draw the first couple times. Then it feels fine. Next morning not so much!

Getting a late start but headed that way. Maybe they'll still be someone to shoot with when I get there.

Don't feel bad. Worst score I've ever shot.

But it was still fun! Great afternoon shooting with an awesome young man. His dad kept score so I didn't have to keep up with the bad score. Just visit and shoot. Good afternoon and a good course.

Sorry I missed ya.
You must have shown up after we were already out shooting.

I left pretty quick after we got done, because both me & the kiddo were pretty worn out. He fell asleep before I got out the front gate with him, and slept all the way home.

I didn't shoot a bad score. Just hittin em high a lot ( a whole lot), which is kinda what I expected.

It was a good setup. Pretty tough course, and it showed in the scores. I personally did not shoot all that well (actually stunk the place up with my recurve). Great warmup for Vanderpool!!!

Wish more folks could have made it out!

My sentiments exactly. Only I stunk it with my longbow too.

One of the best sets I have shot in a long time. Anyone who didn't make it missed out

Good shooting gentlemen. I was very disappointed with my score. I could have blamed my moving nock point but in all honesty I just didn't focus well. It was a nice course, the animals set up very well, some challenging shots but nothing that were the "lucky if I hit it" type. Well thought out and fun.

i Could find a lot of things to blame on my performance at this thing. Every time I drew any of my bows, a voice in my head said “ let down”. In other words, nothing felt right. I had a welp on my arm from the string just letting me know I was doing everything wrong. I told Bisch after the first round that was my worst score yet. Little did I know, the next two just got worse. Just wanted to baseball bat swing my brand new Bob Lee up against a tree! At the end of the day, it’s just a game. Despite it all, still ended up having a great time. ( I know, that last sentence contradicts the entire paragraph)
