2010 PA Bow Hunter’s Festival

100_4525

Just got back from the Bow Fest. We had a great time!

It’s so much fun spending time with the family flinging

arrows at animal targets, running up and down the

mountain side on trails, laughing at the misses and

slaps on the back for great shots! My DIL #2 (Archery Chick)

is a really good shot. She uses a compound bow and just

has that edge to hold tight and shoot well. I shoot a Traditional

50# Recurve Bow with no sights, so if I miss … I have no one to

blame but myself! I was a little concerned about pulling back

the bow this year since an injury to my shoulder but my fears

were unfounded, she pulled real nice for me. My two sons

and husband are great shots with both compound and

traditional bows. So now we are ready for the

Pennsylvania woods come Oct. 2nd.

This Church always has a Bow Festival Breakfast.  All you can

eat sausage, pancakes and good hot coffee

hit the spot on a chilly 7am morning.

This is the infamous “Running Deer” target. That deer form

travels back and forth 2 times on a short track at various

speeds. After the 2nd trip it stops mid-track for the archers

to retrieve their arrows. Sometimes it looks like a porcupine

with so many arrows sticking out it’s sides.

It’s around a 45 yard shot and loads of fun.

It was beautiful there in the morning with the mist

rising along with the Sun.

September smells of wood fires, damp leaves,

outdoor cooking … it’s all good.

Psalm  19 … it’s all good …

Ice Fishing at Glendale Lake ...

The weather outside is frightful but that is a good day on the ice!
The fish were not biting much this day but the guys still
had a great time out in the cold!

This young fella was having more fun with the auger than fishing!
He had holes drilled everywhere ...



Walking in the Winter Woods ...


Bella and Dakota with their new Cabela's chest protectors.
We really like them and recommend them, even if you just walk
your dog on the street. They are highly visible and reflective.
The dogs both got their paws in fox traps. Before we could
see what they were smelling, bang, and then the howling started.
I am all for the hunters and trappers but there needs to be some
type of flag to alert those hunting or walking in the woods
with dogs. This is not the first time, nor will it be the last.
I am just thankful that they outlawed the traps with the
teeth. That would have been awful for sure.
No birds to report or bunnies.

Rabbit season's just around the corner ...

This little bunny can hide now but not for long. The dogs will smell him out if the owl's don't get to him first. Seems like a lot of rabbit's around this year. Hunting might be good!

Annie - get your gun!

Sure smells good outside!
