Can't wait, one of my favorite places to go in Texas. Good scenery, good food, and good friends. Can't get much better.

This will be the 3rd time at Growing Rocks. There are plenty of good places to tent camp. When they said it was ending at Bugscuffle, I was sad because I did not think it would be as good. After a couple years, I actually like the new range better. The only thing the Bugscuffle had on Growing Rocks was a better place for vendors to set up. Itís all out in the open now, with no shade.

Size:  48.0 KB Saturday @ 4:30 the IBO director, Levy Bryant, will put on a really fun event for all of us at the Hill Country Shootout. It is a shooting game, with a field of five or so targets. All skill levels can play, and several winners along the way to find the Last Man Standing. Win prizes, and cash money on the way to the final champion, who wins a big $$$ pot, and the grizzly bear trophy. Schedule to shoot it, Saturday @ 4:30. Doesn't take long, and lots of fun and laughs.

Great course. Loved the up and down shots. Nice to practice those. What was your favorite shot? Mine was #25, the bedded gray ram on the rocks. With the wind coming through on Saturday, it was, for me, the hardest shot on the course, especially from the orange stake. Loved all of it.

I would say favorite was the fallow deer across the creek on the first 25 , donít remember the exact number it was near the bat target,and the ones I got 12s on would be in the list as well

Another great year! Thanks to everyone that makes this awesome shoot happen!! If you shoot a trad bow you need to make this shoot!!!! Great people, great part of the state for a tournament, and challenging course.

My favorite targets were the ones Rusty got a 5 on when we shared a round!

Had a blast again this year.

I liked the alligator due to the small margin for vertical error, and if you miss your arrow is toast.
