Default Traditional FSC week 33 3022

We are recycling TradTigers target and procedures from last week.
Whereas, yardage changes:
Adults shoot from 9 yards.
Big kids shoot from 5 yards.
Weebles shoot from 3 yards.

Everything else stays the same.

I love these kind of shots, so I went on out, and shot it.

I shot setting a top of a 4 ft step ladder, because I have to shoot my broadhead target, and it is setting on top of a 30 gal plastic drum.



Why do I have to shoot the broadhead target?
Because if I shoot just the target butt, the arrows go all the way through it, and stick though the 1" MBS board behind it. Makes it a PITA to pull the arrows.

They go through the broadhead target also, but it slows them down enough to only stick about 3" into the target butt. Glad I didn't hit that nail. I forgot it was there.



I desperately need to reinforce that target butt, but don't know with what/how. I guess I just need to build it thicker to like 20".
It is already 10" thick of insulation foam, and is backed (front & back) with 1/2" horse stall mat. Both it, and the broadhead target were repaired/rebuilt about a month ago.

I'm pretty sure I'll get plenty of penetration on even the biggest of pigs.

Here's the shots.

Darn close shots TT.
Good shooting Gary.

Great shooting Rick! Just the sight of that nail brings the onset of a pucker effect.

Ill probably still wrangle the kiddos on target tomorrow. Weve been on a beach trip. Time to get back to tuning hunting arrows and sweaty range time.

Heck he had to explain it to me. I'm dense.
I thought he was commenting on how long it would be before you stopped talking about penetration on a big pig and actually went out and killed one with that bow . . .

Just waiting for some cooler weather.
I was loaded up to go the other day, but had to make a PO stop on the way.
I sweated my butt off in the PO, and that was enough to make me realize I was gonna bake like a fat potato in the blind.

Went to the store, got me a coke, and some peanuts to go in it, then headed my tail back home to the a/c.

It's miserable right now. An hour or hour and a half in the morning is all I can get.

I had to at least shoot the target once.
One in the hole.
Jr wasnt impressed by his performance but I thought it was good focus on the second shot.

Hey Rick, I’ll see your 2, and raise you 2 more!!!!



Now, even if these had been before yours, they wouldn’t have counted for anything because they were not my first shots of the day. I just got a new lighter weight bow and am really digging it!

Good shooting Bisch. I look forward to seeing the LDPs and patented killer smirk…behind the new bow.

Got excited, and choked on #3.
Bad release & all as you can tell by how wonky the arrow is in the target.
Recovered, and dropped #4 in there where it was supposed to be.

To make myself feel better about, I shot a 5th arrow with broadhead.
