I like to Target Practice and with ammo for my .22 so difficult to get, I thought I'd go back to archery.
I found this Youth Compound Bow that does not have a huge heavy pull on it and decided to pick it up.
I've been having trouble with rabbits this past summer getting into the garden and destroying a lot of our goodies.
Morris was good at finding rabbit nests and getting rid of a few by digging them out.
So I thought I'd take a beaten up squash about the size of a rabbit and see if...
I could shoot it from a short distance.
...and I was able to just begin to get some feel for the bow after a couple of hours of shooting.
I have to work on consistency for my draw of course and watch a few 'training' videos.
But I am enjoying it a lot.
I can target shoot and shoot and re-use the same ammo over and over.
Archery teaches patience and consistency along with discipline. I think it is a great out door sport.
I suppose if I ever get good enough I could use it for getting rid of varmints ... but that remains to be seen.
A friend of mine told me to practice shooting while riding a mule.
Hey, there are all sorts of possibilities!
But first things first.
Practice, Practice, Practice.
