davis made the comment in a recent conversation that he wished i would go with him to the hunting club with him during archery season and i simply said, "well, if i had a bow i would." (it's not fun to go to the hunting club and not hunt, duh)
"well, let's get you one"
"okay" i'm thinking that like the previous four years of saying i wanted one, this was another 'blow off' promise....
i was wrong! remember the trip to SANS? all the ordered parts for my bow were shipped and i am the proud parent of a new bow! i am super stoked!
Meet Elvis (he has blue shoes, get it? i was thinking calling it Dory cause it's blue and i have a Nemo (orange) but i have a friend named dory and it could get confusing...then i thought 'Lucy' but i already had a Lucy, so elvis it is)
Mathews Passion (turq and black)
whisker biscuit (i LUV that name) arrow rest
trophy ridge sight with 3/16" peep
mathews quiver that has it's own little noise dampener
he is quiet and fast!
(isn't he so handsome with his perfect form)
i have to work on my 'form' and learn to relax both my hands. just like in LAing, i'm learning my muscle memory...
my left arm is a bit sore, but it's expected. i'm using muscles i don't normally use.
(just in case you were wondering: 20 yards and the second day of practice.) i was aiming for the black dots...one arrow per dot. not bad, and it's encouraging to see progress so quickly.
it's not easy, but like Matt at SANS says, "if it were easy, everyone would do it"
