Just got back from the first ASA shoot of the year in Newberry, FL. Had an awesome time and shot really well for the first tournament of the year. I finished 12th in the Open Pro division with a 410 and 10 12's. I had one "kick out" that kept me from a 414 which would have moved me up a few spots. A "kick out" is when you hit an arrow already in the target, in this case the 12 ring, and it kicks you out, in my case to the 8 ring. That's a bit of bad luck, but I can't complain at all.
I hunted really hard all the way down to the end of the AL deer season which went out Jan 31. So, I didn't practice nearly as much as a lot of my competition. Therefore, Im pretty happy with the result. Now, its time to really hammer down on practice and preperation but try to keep my "loose" attitude when in the next competiton. I think that was very valuable to me. Sometimes I press or try too hard and it bites me in the rear end.
Today, Thomas Boutwell, is coming down and we are shooting a lot of video for the show that will be supporting stuff. This is the time to really let the creativity shine.
Tomorrow, we are heading down to my buddy, Benjamin Eubanks, place and shoot some hogs with out bows. It's time to let the ol' Z7 Xtreme eat!!! Im ready for a little porkchop biscuit action! haha.
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the nice weather especially in the South.
Yall take care!
