Badger, your skill is only bested by your humility, thanks. Now let's see some pictures and stats on the bows!

No worries here, Badger.  You sure don't come across as a swell-headed boaster.  If anything, you anger a few of us because YOU DON'T POST PICS FROM THE SALT FLATS WHERE THE SHOOTING TAKES PLACE!

Keep the Spirit of Dr. Greyson alive, brother.  Congratulations on your records.

  I don't carry a camera, but I will get some pics that are being posted and post them here. Over the next few days I expect more pics to start showing up.

Thanks man.  I appreciate it.

Years ago when I first subscribed to P.A. there was an article on the Flight Shoots.  I immediately wanted to go, still do!

   Draw length was 27 1/2" on the self bow, 29" on the composite bow. Both were 67" long. Around 66" nock to nock seems to be my magic number and where I have been building most my bows lately. I used to build them between 60" and 64" but was getting better esults slightly longer.

  Participation is down dangerously low. Some of the older members will soon be retiring. We need to do more promotion but thier doesn't seem to be much interest. Myself and a few others plan to try and start sponsoring flight shoots associated with local clubs if we can drum up some interest.
