Quick Trip to Georgia

We’re back in Georgia for a couple of days. Our oldest daughter invited us to join them to see Cirque de Soleil. We’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Between now and them I have two tournaments, one in North Carolina the other in Maryland.

Once we get back to Georgia I am looking forward to shooting in Madison, Georgia. Then it’s onto Decatur, Alabama for the USA Outdoor National Championship. So, with all the competitive events in the near future I’ve not skipped on practice.


We have a field here that is devoted to storing trailers, tractors, and archery. That’s were I practiced this morning. I was shooting with a Mathews Apex 7 and pins rather than my Elite with a scope. The Elite is being re-strung in Elizabeth City, NC. I’ll have it back on Tuesday.


I’d mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve not shot using pins in over a year. It feels a little weird aiming with pins. Nearly all my shots landed in the yellow and I almost opened up the center.


Pins and no magnification certainly make seeing the X more of a challenge. Shooting out over 35 yards takes a slightly different “feel”. The effort is magnified since the Mathews bow feels very different from the Elite. But, I think the variance in the bows could be good practice.

  1. Wish I could make it down to see you complete in Decatur, AL. Do spectators pay admission?

    1. Hi Jonathan, I appreciate the thought and understand. No there is no fee to watch. We haven’t planned our trip back. If we end up near Birmingham I’ll let you know.
