Beech Mtn Definitely NOT Boulder
I picked up an old Darton compound bow at a flea market/thrift store type place (was that legal?) over the summer but I've just recently gotten into shooting it pretty regularly. I find it really soothing especially on these cold fall days. I'm not very good at it yet, but it's a lot of fun. Are there any archers out there on teh monkey? I feel like gff had a thread about it a while back iirc..

I haven't used a bow since I was a Boy Scout. Every now and then it seems like it would be fun to try again.

I am a monkey archer.... or is it archer monkey? Either way, I shoot a bow. Have been contemplating a new one actually to replace the ole Mathews.....

looking for classic NE singletrack
I got my 5yo niece this for Christmas last year:



Don't think that my sister/her husband have *actually* given it to her yet. Pretty sure that the only reason they're still talking to me is that I'm funding 529s for their kids... :D

I don't know.. I didn't have a clue about archery stuff when I bought it. I just assumed it would require paperwork similar to buying a rifle or shotgun (that's not much in NC) but apparently not?
There used to be some rules about crossbows in NC but I think they have even done away with that. The couple that I have never required any paperwork.

It looks like the house we are hoping to buy will have enough room to shoot more than 10 yards!

I have an old hoyt raptor. I've been working into it. Hopefully I'll be good enough to go out for archery this year.

Been bowhunting all my life. Turkey is really hard in MA but its great for deer season the shotgun season is a cluster in MA and I am surprise more people don't get shot. The good thing about bow hunters is the majority of them have been hunting for a long time so its not like there are a bunch of noobs out in the woods. Anyone that has gone deer hunting in the shotgun season in MA knows what I am talking about with shotgun season depending on the time you go it feels like is a a game of lazer tag. :/

Oh I shoot a Bear Bows I have a Legion for a small Axle to Axle for the tree stand, an Anarchy for stand up and for practice shooting and I also have a cross w that is some kind of Horton. I love all three of them. In MA you only have to be 18 to buy a bow but for the cross bow you can only target shoot with it, to hunt you need a letter from your dr. saying you are disabled and can't fire a normal compound.
