TEXAS EAST ASA QUALIFIER IN PARIS

Well sunday  we headed out to paris for my second asa 3d archery tourney.I qualified last week at the texins shootout in the hunter class.This weekend i made sure i was in the right division,I should have been in the novice class since this is my first year in asa.Archers for christ had a great course,The practice ranges were top notch.After signing in at 8:30 and shooting threw the chrono the official said that my bow was shooting to fast so i had to drop the poundage down just a hair.So then i had to hit the range and do a little fine tuning.After a few arrows i was dialed in and ready to shoot.They started me on target number 24 with two other guys and a teenager.I had a nervous start shooting two eights on the first two targets then i calmed down and started slamming in tens and twelves.By half way threw i had already shot six twelves and almost all the rest were tens.By the end i had shot the best round i had ever had in a 3d tourney.My final score was a 296.After waiting around for the award ceremony i ended up getting fouth place,missed taking home a check by one point,and missed taking home a buckle by 10.I was still happy with the end results,Just going to have to work on getting my arrows a little tighter in the bullseyes.heres a few pics of the shootout.

a cast and blast sunday

well blake and i headed out to lake lavon this morning,we put the boat in at tickey creek.had a slow first couple of hours but when the wind picked up the sandbass started schooling heavily out on the points of the mainland.we caught 6 and the first spot and then moved to the second one and finished the morning there.We ended catching 20 sandbass with the biggest  a whopping 15 inches had a great time.So to end this day were headed out to the stand around 6:00 we just made a whole new stand setup on a gas pipe line using a pig pipe tied to a tree,Its been hit really hard the last four nights so we should have some good action tonight to get on film.A cast and blast day
