Nine yards is close. I have to aim two inches or so low at 10. You'd think it'd be a slam dunk. Nope.

Briar Friar Day 1: DQ

Com’on Gary. Let’s see a pic. Those 25 yd shots were super sexy. Let us see the ugly side.

Reb... Do you mean 7/8” low? That doesnt look like 1 7/8” off a 2” triangle. I think you lead my Man.

Mi hijo... call sign BBGunCockKiller (his choice b/c with a bb gun he killed a cock that was attacking us). I tried to get him to shoot it with a bow and arrow...attempted and unsuccessful...then it evolved into a cock fight with both the rooster and my son kicking each other. The video is a riot.
Day 1: 1 7/8”

Gary...
Im glad your 9 yard shots are as sexy as your 25 yard shots. You have no ugly shots. I stand corrected.
Well done Sir.
I look forward to your call Sir.

It's like an ugly dog. You only hunt when you go out to the woods alone.
You only take the good looking ones when you invite your buddies.
I'll get ne up. Down at the ranch so I'm limited.

In all seriousness that new Prmaltech shoots well for me. Plus I practice close shots. Because hunting I don't take 25 yard ones. From August through December I shoot 5 to 15 for practice.
And a little luck never hurt anyone.

Funny ugly dog analogy Gary.

Good form and a good bow. Sounds like a skiller combo.

Take your time...we’ll be here.
