      A local bowyer here, Ben Graham of Humingbird Bows, won the new wood arrow longbow class. Not too many people competed in it though, as I understand.

      Thanks. I’m still in a little bit of shock about it. After three solid days of tough competition all three podium positions in my class were decided on the very last target, a 28-yard deer slightly uphill. I ended up shooting last in our group and scored an 11 for the win. If nothing else, these tournaments will teach you how to shoot under pressure, which is a great thing for bowhunters.

      There were a lot of great highlights last weekend. Watching the final women’s head to head round of the Bowhunter Challenge Shoot Down was amazing. Fawn Girard shot an 11 on a 20-some-yard mountain lion with her last arrow, and then Shana Statler ended up Robbin Hooding it for the win and took home $1,000. But my favorite highlight was watching my friend Chris Schwandt overcome a 10-point deficit and climb from 4th to 1st in the final round, winning Modern Longbow in an x-count tie breaker. It was his second world championship, and his entire family was there to see it happen.
