      Here’s a shout-out to anyone who participated in the Cook Inlet Archers Turkey Shoot yesterday in Chugiak, AK (a locality within the municipal boundary of Anchorage.) I used to live in Chugiak. It made me smile and feel deeply envious while I looked at photos from the event. Anyone interested in traditional bowhunting will undoubtedly smile as well, particularly after looking at photo number 16 in the series. 😀 (That must have been one very confused animal to have traveled that far — his relatives haven’t been in Alaska since the Pleistocene.)

      That looked like it was loads of fun, nothing going here in NW Montana for 3D shoots right now.

      Yes, that’s how I shoot and it’s fun to see it in practice. You’ll also see some instinctive shooting (which I do) if you examine the photos. Yeah, I know it’s not literally “instinctive” — don’t make me get all Zen on you. 😀 One of my dad’s favorite jokes fits very well with what we trad bowhunters try to do in our hunting and shooting:

      What did the Zen master say to the hot dog vendor?
      “Make me one with everything.”
