Ohio just passed new regs and archery begins now Sept 30 and goes to Feb 2. - I can't wait to get started too. I'll practise all summer long for the late summer season to start. :yes:

Rowdy, if you shoot 3D, it is definately good practice for bow season, especially if you have a guy setting up the ranges that's as evil as the guy that sets up some of the ones i shoot :lol: most of the shots are within decent ranges for the novice group, but he'll set up shots where you almost have to graze a tree to hit the kill zone.. and lets face it.. a whitetail is gonna come out and stop in the worst possible place for a shot, now aren't they?

Terry I agree with your suggestion. I'm a dues paying card carrying member in some local archery clubs (mainly because they needed the funds for programs and to stay a float). I just don't have the personal time to make it to the ranges. :(

I do shoot at 4 3D targets and my 4x4 block (that is almost gone from all the practise) in my back yard several evening a week and weekends. I've made holes in a few of them from broadhead shots the size of grapefruits. :rofl: And yes they are in the right spot over the 10 ring boiler room circle. :lol:

September 16 in Wisconsin! :yes:

Now that I've got a buck bowkill under my belt, my goals have changed. I'm not going to shoot a buck (with any weapon) unless I believe it will net 125", or qualify for Pope & Young. And keeping with tradition, I'll shoot as many does as I can. I'd like to get at least three does this year. If I can get all three with a bow that would be even better. :D
