4-H Archery

I am a youth leader for the Counties 4-H archery project. The County has 85 kids in the archery program. It's grate to see the program growing last year there where 53 kids in the program, and for years ago there wasn't a program at all. Today was the first day of shooting. It was a grate time, even if I only had time to shoot 3 ends of arrows (that is 15 arrows, 5 arrows an end) at the end of the day. I spent the rest of the day coaching.

It was fun watching and helping everyone shoot. Everyone from people who has been shooting a bow all their life, to those who I helped shoot their first arrow. There was one kid that I helped shoot he had never shot before. He was so excited to pull that bow back for the first time. The magic of pulling back the string letting the arrow fly and hit the target.

O how I have forgot the magic of the arrows flight how it flies so gracefully thru the air to hit the target. That kid helped me remember the magic that I have forgotten, for so long it had it has become just putting the arrow on the target. I thank that kid for helping me remember the magic I have so long forgotten.

Getting Ready for Fishing Season

In Wisconsin fishing season starts on the first Saturday of May. So this time of year I like to get everything ready for the up coming open water to fishing season. I start by cleaning up and organizing all my tackle boxs.
You know how it gets messy you keep fishing and you don't take the time to clean it the right way. So that Is why I take the time now wen the ice is to thin and the open water season is closed.

I sharpen hooks that need sharpening. you know they get dull, it happens to you to they get caught on rocks and logs. I use a small sharpening stone to sharpen the the hooks. And I replace all the hooks that are bent, broken, or just in to bad of shape to be worth sharpening.

I also replace the line in all my reals. It is not worth losing a fish because the line is old and frade, wen it only takes a cupel minutes to change the line. Don't forget to clean out the inside of the real, it only takes a little sand to reck your real. But be careful don't clean your reals unless you know what you are doing it doesn't take long to reck a perfectly good real.

How close can you get.

Most bowhunters want to get close to what they are are hunting to make a clean kill. But is there a point that is to close? Watch these videos and tell me what you think.
