With both Redneck Archery Club and Bad to the Bone shutting down this year (if I hear any change I’ll post an update), it looks like the only shoots within an hour of my house are River Bottom Outdoors and Sweetwater Archery.  I’m not certain about the Bowden Bowhunter’s Supply shoot, I’ve never driven out to their location since their shoots were almost always on top of our 323 Archery shoots, but according to Google Maps the center of Bowden is 56 miles away from me.


River Bottom Outdoors – December 2015

I’ll be doing more posts this year – last year was a very light ‘outdoors’ year for me, other than the bear hunt and three archery shoots, I didn’t really do much. The bear hunt was fantastic, but flying to Maine forced me to really, really go minimal on gear and clothing, and I would have liked to explore North Maine Woods more than I did the last two trips.

This year will be much, much different. I’m getting outside more often and ranging further than ever.  To start with, my wife bought me a gift certificate to hunt with Hog Wild USA – I’ll be contacting the outfitter shortly to figure out the details of the hunt.  I still don’t know if I am going to hunt with my bow or rifle, I have a new Mossberg Patriot .308 that I’m itching to use, but part of me wants the quiet intensity of using my PSE Freak SP instead.

In the meantime, I’ll be practicing with my PSE Xpression and enjoying every minute I can get out in the woods.

Good luck and be safe in your outdoor activities in 2016!

Merry Christmas from 323 Archery (pretty much Clay and myself) and Gable Sporting Goods!
