2010 PA Bow Hunter’s Festival


Just got back from the Bow Fest. We had a great time!

It’s so much fun spending time with the family flinging

arrows at animal targets, running up and down the

mountain side on trails, laughing at the misses and

slaps on the back for great shots! My DIL #2 (Archery Chick)

is a really good shot. She uses a compound bow and just

has that edge to hold tight and shoot well. I shoot a Traditional

50# Recurve Bow with no sights, so if I miss … I have no one to

blame but myself! I was a little concerned about pulling back

the bow this year since an injury to my shoulder but my fears

were unfounded, she pulled real nice for me. My two sons

and husband are great shots with both compound and traditional

bows. So now we are ready for the Pennsylvania woods come Oct. 2nd.


This Church always has a Bow Festival Breakfast.  All you can eat

sausage, pancakes and good hot coffee hit the spot on a chilly 7am morning.


This is the infamous “Running Deer” target. That deer form travels back and forth 2 times

on a short track at various speeds. After the 2nd trip it stops mid-track for the archers

to retrieve their arrows. Sometimes it looks like a porcupine with so many arrows

sticking out it’s sides. It’s around a 45 yard shot and loads of fun.


It was beautiful there in the morning with the mist rising along with the Sun.

September smells of wood fires, damp leaves, outdoor cooking … it’s all good.

Psalm  19 … it’s all good …
