So, I stop in to the Sportsmens in Fbks, with a friend,.... we think, "Let's talk to the guys, about Bows !!"
a short while later, we're hooked up with a good guy, knows something about it all, Forrest, I think his name was
and he's got us shooting a few arrows,...and,
WE'RE TOTALLY HOOKED
Lots of good information for a box store guy,...appreciated that completely
Then we stop by and talk with Andrew, of Precision in Fbks,...and as you AOD guys had recommended,
He told us Tons of good info, but was short of starter bows, selling like hotcakes I guess
So, a few days later, in Anch. on Craigslist I see a "Mathews Craze," still available,...for a great price, guy shot it a few times, Quit
And, Now,.... Here I am, owner of a new Bow, hoping to get my 11 yr old son into this sometime soon,
and learn enough myself before moving up (??) if I even need to move up,...this seems like it may harvest critters like crazy ??
This appears to be a pretty good adjustable bow by the internet opinions, for a start up for myself and for my son's future
Now, I am the classic case of...., "Bought a Bow, with cash in a parking lot," have no tips from the Archery Shop Pros,
It has already been setup with pretty good gear all around,
So, I'm ready to get started, but wondering if there is a good place to get tips, training ??
Is there a good website, or should I ask around here, go to Youtube, etc. for information on how to start up without developing bad habits, etc.
I'm on Kodiak Island, and was actually totally surprised to see almost nothing Bowhunt related
at our favorite Sporting Goods store here,...not even a target
I'm up for any good tips, even on building your homemade target, etc. ????????
This is Obviously a Really Cool way to Hunt, so I'm on catch-up mode with you folks,...
any help for the guy who skipped the Specialty store advantage?? Now figuring it all out from scratch ??
Especially Kodiak Contacts, to the Archery Community, would be great
