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
