2018 was somewhat uneventful as far as shooting goes for me due to a major surgery in February that kept me from shooting until the end of March. And then a shoulder injury in April that kept me from shooting until the Thursday prior to opening day of archery season.
What I was able to do was find some resources online that I feel are helping my archery hunting chances for success. The first was watching the Born and Raised Outdoors Land of the Free Project 1.0 and 2.0. I also started the Elk101 course online. Besides the online education, I lost 14lbs. and plan on losing quite a bit more prior to the 2019 archery season. Due to my shoulder injury, I was in physical therapy twice a week from May through the end of August. I was very motivated to get my shoulder repaired enough to be able to shoot for archery season. Even though I was not able to harvest an animal this year, I learned more than ever about elk and hunting, and I was closer than I have ever been to an elk and it was so much fun!! I can’t wait until archery season 2019!! I was able to shoot the first leg of the 2018 shoot out tour before Thanksgiving, which was my first indoor shoot. Besides preparing for archery season 2019, I would love to be able to participate in more indoor shoots and try some Field shoots along with my outdoor 3D shoots.
I am attaching some photos that I took this past year of some places I went and of my bow because I love it so much. I am thankful for the opportunity to represent Alpine Archery and Fly for 2019 and I hope that I will be able to post more ACTUAL shooting photos in 2019.
