…I have longed maintained that hunting involves the entire family – even if all the family members don’t actively hunt…just ask the Mom who has to get Junior ready for his first pheasant hunt, the big sister that shuttles her younger, bow-hunting sister around, or the chef that turns the aspiring hunter’s success into a meal…but even beyond that, once you find yourself bitten by the hunting bug you realize that you are surrounded by a much bigger family that shares the same affliction – and often adds to it…
…perhaps it’s when you pick up the the bow that it becomes the most evident – here’s just a couple more examples:
Brandon Tomcak Youth 3D Shoot – held last Weekend by the Golden Arrow Archery Club at their Outdoor Range.
Grant Hoefener 3D & Fun Shoot – being held this Sunday (6/12) by the Lower Platte Archery Club at the Larry Elston Archery Range near Shramm State Park.
…both shoots named after an archery family member that moved onto to the next-hunting-grounds while still in their youth – much too early for the rest of us…these events serve to get youth involved in archery – in fact, you don’t even need a bow to be part of these shoots as the Ted Nugent Camp for Kids has some you can borrow…

…archery is a life-skill that holds many opportunities – including the chance to be part of a really big family…
