      Was down south on vacation and also looking for a house in Tennessee and NorthCarolina. We stopped at one house and it was real nice. Except for the houses around it. I told the wife that I didn’t like it because I didn’t have anyplace there to shoot my bow. Now here is the crazy part. Her response, “There are more important things in life then shooting your bow”:shock: Wow, I didn’t know how to repond to the crazy lady:?

      As a young man, I shot competitive skeet for almost 2 decades – without hearing protection, which was for sissies (or so I had convinced myself). Consequently, I’ve hearing damage. Such an affliction, although debilitating at times, can be useful with wives … even when we do hear them. 😉

      Well I reckon I’m a lucky man, as my wonderful wife, a bit of a hermit, just loves it when I go hunting because it gets me out of the house–understandably, she tires of my incessant singing of songs I make up myself–and assures I’ll come home smiling. 😀 I always do anyhow. But we’ve had 32 years together, and I mean together (I’ve usually worked at home, and home is tiny) to work it out. If your spouse resents you going hunting, that suggests that he/she enjoys your company too much and/or your house is too big. Your own fault! 😆

      I live in a townhouse with a small courtyard out back and can shoot from my living room, through the sliding door (open of course) and across the courtyard to my target at the back wall. Can get 18-19 yds that way. The whole courtyard is surrounded by a 6ft. brick wall and I have a 4x6ft piece of conveyor belt rubber for a backstop. My wife cringes every time I shoot, buy hey, a guy’s got to do what a guy’s got to do! Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

      I mention dear that if I have a place to shoot less likely having me spend money on stuff we don’t need like a vacuum:lol:

      I used to wonder how well a person would do with a bow during wars. Mainly the trench warfare of WWI. Imagine the enemy hiding behind their sand bags. You could lob an arrow over the top or blast it right through the bag.8)

      There was a British officer used a longbow I think on the retreat to Dunkirk 1940, if I remember rightly his score was three enemy. The guy was completely eccentric he also carried a long basket hilted sword.
      An article appeared a few years ago Ill try and find a copy.
