Congrats to you, Reb, for Week 27!

This walk-back challenge really will be a great all-distance test! Love it.

Good shooting on Day 1, Reb. Easy elevation fix for (assuming the 25-yarder) the low one. Still right on line.

Default First Attempt

I can't get past 17 yards in my backyard, so I'm gonna have to hit three bullseyes to even be in the running here. I'm also dealing with something funky in my shot, so really I'm just looking for a participation trophy .

4pts.

Day 1: 4 pts. First time shooting my new longbow-- a Blue Ridge that Bob Sarrels made for me 67#@28". Not too bad till the wide-right 25-yard shot.

Thanks. Shoots smooth and fast, as well. Light in hand -- only about 1-3/4 lbs, compared to my recurve that is a full pound heavier (28 oz vs. 44 oz), with zero hand shock. And Bob is great to deal with!

Thanks, Byron! Yes, it is my first Blueridge -- really first longbow. Weight matches my Jay Weathers recurve exactly, so I can use the same arrows. Weight pulls easy; just use back, with relaxed forearm. Shot over 100 arrows through it yesterday -- mostly from 25 yards. Bow arm got a little tired toward the end.

I may have to take my 5 back to 2. My typical judgment is if I dont see daylight between the shaft and line then its the higher. Verdict Reb?

to take the lead.

Default 3rd attempt

5 points. That first one was a flier. I thought I nailed it on the second, and number 3 was off more than I'd like.

Oh yeah, and the second attempt wasn't worth a picture

Today’s attempts with the recurve. 2 x3= 6, and 2 x1= 2, for 8 total

Daniel and I shot an ASA shoot last Saturday, and I couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn. Some days are good, some days it’s a good thing I don’t make a living with the bow.

Great shooting Yall!

Day 3: 4pts
I was off paper again at 20&25. I think my face anchors are floating...mainly because my thumb dances around if I dont consciously anchor my thumb behind my jaw.

Have a great day Yall!
