So now what?
 
Well the big shoots here in Texas have wound down. Yeah there's a few here and there spread out but with gas prices I'll be picking and choosing a little more. Hunting season is a bit off yet. Still, can't afford to slack off.
I've got a lot of practice and prep before September 1st. Besides practice I need to determine what and how to pack, working enough jobs to afford all the extra animals I want to take but may not get a chance at.
But what else is going on in y'all's archery lives the next few months? Shoots not yet listed? Maybe a guided bow fishing trip to Louisiana or an elk scouting trip to Colorado?

I値l be headed to the guided bowfishing trip in La tomorrow. Should be sticking redfish tomorrow night!!!!

Other than that, I知 just waiting for deer season to get here, or for the axis to show back up at my place.

There is a shoot in Wellington during August we would like to attend, but it’s a 5 1/2 hour drive for us, and gas prices are going to keep us closer to home. We had planned on making the IBO shoot in Pensacola, but that looks to be out, as well. For now we’ll be working on some form adjustments Levy and Shana helped us with, and maybe building an elevated platform to practice from. A little fine tuning with our broadheads...

Nilgai with trad gear is on my list this year. Got some hogs to hunt locally and planning on putting a feeder and tripod on my place in San Angelo. Scouting and another hunt in Amistad. Few other possibles as well.

Well theres the monthly 3D shoots at TAC and BCAC. Not big events, but a good morning just the same if live close enough. And, the Dinasour Valley TBOT is on 7/2 and 7/3. Then there's the tentative Austin TBOT on 7/23 and 7/24.

Have to get my feeder and stand up on my new San Augustine lease.

And, last but not least, I need to make a quiver out of last years axis hide.

Are you going to make it yourself or have it done by someone? I've got one I need to do something cool with as well.

BCAC痴 June shoot got pushed back to June 26. The July shoot will be on the regularly scheduled day.

Yeah I won't make the drive to liberty hill but I will the Glen Rose shoot. Probably only a couple of rounds though. Have a memorial that Saturday evening to attend

Good push. I was wondering when the local shoot was happening.

Im tuning new arrows for my hunting rig arrows and trainer bow arrows. Paul at Double G has some 700 spine Black Eagles on order for me. Im gonna do as much bareshafting and tuning as I can in his A/C rather than my hot range.

Thinking about making it myself. Never done any leather work, and I have no patience at all, so if I do it myself it may be ugly and a waste of a nice hide.

I'd lay odds there's a YouTube video or twenty that can help.

An axis quiver would be really nice. I would try YouTube also, you can find instruction on how to make anything on there. My buddy I shoot with locally made a quiver out of a brain tanned Javelina he took with a longbow. His came out pretty cool.

I’m having a new boat built for fishing and bow fishing. Rebuilding a 1988 30hp 3 cylinder Yamaha to put on it. Need to buy a new trailer for the rig. I’d love to shoot some more 3D but it’s getting mighty hot! I need to run up to Kansas next week to hang stands and prep a couple food plots, then stop at my lease in Oklahoma on my way home and plant a plot there….
My wife wants to drive to Banff Canada for a vacation in July. My next hitch off after that trip I’ll drive to western Colorado to scout for elk. So a pretty busy schedule lined up

You池e my idol Corey!!!!!

I hope you kill some big ones this year.

You need to get yourself out and shoot some 3D to get ready for that hunt.

Trumpkin 06-22-2022 03:30 PM

I'm in the dog days of summer here... tilling up the grass to prep the ground for fall gardens, working on my 75% completed drift boat, sweating buckets, and generally being ornery that I can't go kill something, or catch something right now. I hate summer.

DRT 06-22-2022 04:38 PM

Yeah it's hot. Think I'll go shoot

Well, the bareshaft and refits are done. All that's left now is to build and test arrows then kill some pigs to confirm.
