I believe the Stickbow 100 is in Cheyenne instead of Cody.  Could be wrong.  The Cheyenne shoot is at Curt Gowdy State Park.

The High Country shoot was pretty awesome.  Well done, well maintained.  Lots of folks but all well mannered and nice.  I met folks I never expected to meet there.  I also got to meet Old Sailor and Jack Skinner.  Great folks.  We all fit in well and I would share a camp or secret hunting information, or even equipment with them any time.  TAS remains a pretty wonderful venue for meeting folks just like yourself.  

We shot till we couldn't lift our bows up, then did it again after a rest.  I'd like to say I was awesome, well some of my screw ups qualify !   I had some really good periods and I also had a melt down, but the last morning we all met up at 6:30 am and shot a few rounds and it went well for all of us.

Heck.. we even did a few " stupid" shots.  Some were incredibly stupid.

That Jack..... you start looking for a more difficult location to ( safely) shoot from and his eyes light up.  He will say..... "Well, I don't know....." ( as he is pulling an arrow outta his back quiver).

A great time.   Thanks guys.

I tried to catch up with you guys but the lack of cell service made it tuff. I found the TAS banner nut you were all out shooting. Next time. That shoot is a good one.

Just got home from the High Country Shoot , my first shoot, and I had a great time! Can't wait to go back next year.  The layout was great and as Chuck said we shot and shot until my fingers were sore and then we went back and shot some more.  There were 6 courses with 12 animals on each course.  They varied from straight forward, to the extreme! The shooting was great but what made it so much fun was the 3 great fellows I got to shoot with!  We all had our good moments and some not so good but it was all great fun! Hope we can all make it back next year with lots more of you TASers.

This was my camp next to Jack's trailer. Mike and Chuck were up in the meadow above us. 20170621_183329.jpg

There were a few targets out in the open, but very few, most were hidden quite well with lots of shots having to shoot through foliage or between tree trunks.  Jack is admiring our great, or not so great shots.

If you look down the trail and to the right of the orange ribbon you can make out the tips of the horns of a bull elk and his shoulder between the branches.  Jack wasn't with us on this one but Chuck, Mike and I all got our arrows through and found foam. But oh no, not good enough for Chuck, we had to back up another 8 or 10 yards and try again and if that wasn't enough back a few more yards for a third try! Well rational thought returned to me at that point and I bowed out (chickened out) and left the third shot for Chuck and Mike. Chuck or Mike will have to fill you in on the results, I'm having a memory lapse.

Thanks Jack, Chuck, and Mike for making my first shoot a memorable one.  Don't see how it could get any better!

Steve, we kept looking for you and wondering where you were.

OS... all I remember is the sound of an arrow hitting trees and disintegrating...... happened too often on Saturday ( meltdown day).  I think I actually made it thru the hole on that far elk shot you just described but it was high and I stuck it in one of the antler beams.  

My meltdown coincided with / preceded our venture into the three arrow range, the one that makes real men cry.  That combination did not bode well for my confidence.  The shots were all doable and realistic.... but....... most targets were placed... hmmmm well, like, at the edge of the great abyss, on the top of Pikes Peak (with a Volkswagon sized boulder as the only backstop),  on a very steep ( read... hands and feet needed to get back up) slope, shooting from a rockslide, over a boulder etc.   On a normal day it was just a tough section.  Good concentration needed.  When you are WAY off your beat and plucking badly, it was a nightmare.  Saturday, for me, was a great day to go taste testing at a distillery.  

I got to test shoot Jack's no-shelf bow ( Heritage ?) and I am pretty certain I will build or buy one for my own.  It has its own unique feel and feeling to shoot.  I can also shoot it both handed so I can work on regaining my rightie shooting ( hoping).  That way a critter can't sneak in from my wrong side anymore.

Steve... we all looked, and were hoping you would see the banner.  Hard to meet someone the first time at a shoot this size with no cell service to help.  Saw some ( a bunch) very nice looking (much) younger ladies shooting and having fun there and thought.... Nah, can't be Steve, but Mike made sure to carefully watch them for a while to be sure [biggrin].

Camping in the meadow, at 9,000 or so feet elevation means light shows after the big light in the sky gets past the horizon in the west.  It was incredible.  If only I wasn't so tired so I could stay awake half the night to watch.  Paul ( Moleman)... I was thinking of you and your guitar sitting there looking at the show.  Wish you coulda made that shoot.

Well guys I had a great time, best shoot I have been to in years, and mostly because of the company. What great guys to shoot with and talk everything archery. We were also discussing a TAS antelope hunt. I hope we can make that happen. I will do all I can from here to help.
