3 Hoyt risers and a Sky Conquest

#1 "Like new" Hoyt Elan Mossy Oak factory camo 25" $325

#2 "Very Good" Hoyt Aero Tec flames fade to black 25" $325

#3 "Good" Hoyt Avalon Gold ano 25" $325

#4 "Good" Sky Conquest Gold ano 24" $325

price includes shipping conus (buyer pays insurance option) open to best offers.

These risers have been my favorite bows but I'm paring down. If you have any interest in ILF (Int'l limb fitting) type bows this is a great place to be, like the titan and das these are great risers. The 24" and 25" risers give you a smoother draw, less stack and a more forgiving shot.

Practicing in My Backyard: there's an archer in all of us!

It is quite remarkable that an arrow can collide into another arrow and run down the shaft. If telescoped arrow is in the bullseye it is commonly called a "Robin Hood". If you get a witness and send in a form the NFAA will document your Robin Hood.

I took a picture and then brought the arrow to my shop to pull it apart and see if I could salvage the shot out arrow. This time I wasn't so lucky and the Gold Tip shaft was not salvageable for my draw length. Oh well, I am in the process of ordering another dozen.

Ashes to ashes

Dust to dust. We hunted a burn area this year, and it wasn't just any burn. The fire here got so hot it burned the seeds and it's taken this forest some time to get going. Which makes for more browse and open space. Big mule deer graced this area at one time, but we saw more black bear on our daily jaunts.

Both my buddy and I missed a bear, I shot high and he shot low. Second prize may have been a first after reflecting, we both got really close and personal to some black bears and we all lived for another glorious day!

To any camo geeks out there, please note the digital camo "optifade" on the backpack and the hat.

High country Sierra Nevada: mountain quail

Hunting in the high country of the Sierra Nevada is crisp, invigorating, and challenging. Animals abound and hunting with a longbow gives countless tales to tell.

Mountain quail make for small game and the challenge to gather and hunt.

It looks like my new website is finally shaping up.  I am excited about getting it up and running, with plenty of information on archery, backpacking, bowman, and teeth.
