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 …
