    LOL, nah, both of them are indoor only just for that reason, the crows have gotten into Raven size around here and carry off little bunnies and such. BUT the guy behind me has chickens

    Do you shoot your bow on the golf course?

    I never thought about that, I bet that's good practice shooting those little white balls with the bow.

    You do know that golf rots your brain.
    I had a very good friend that used to hunt and fish with me all the time.
    Well one year he tells me that he and his wife were going to start golfing so that they would have a common activity, and niether one golfed before. They went out and bought what they needed, clubs and balls and such.
    They decided to get some golf lessons because niether had ever golfed before.

    About a month later I called him and asked if he wanted to go out fishing on Saturday, the walleyes were really biting good. He said he couldn't because he and his wife were going out golfing.
    I thought, OK, I understand sometimes you just have to spend time with your wife.
    A couple weeks later after not hearing from him I decided to stop over at his place and I saw his boat in his driveway with a for sale sign on it. I went to his door and asked him about it, he said he was selling it to get money for better golf clubs. He then proceeds to start talking golf with me, like I knew what he was talking about or even cared. I asked if he wanted to head out fishing some day when he wasn't busy golfing. He said he sold his rods and reels. So I asked if he was still planning on going bow hunting come fall, he says he wasn't sure. I stood there shocked!!!! Right in front of me .... I could see by the look in his eyes that golf had rotted out most of his brain. By that fall it had rotted out pretty much what was left and I have never seen him at the archery range or in the woods again...... The worst thing is, I think his wife quit golfing!

    Funny, I quit playing golf everyday to spend more time hunting, and shooting. Right after I had my torn rotator cuff repaired, go figure.

    I have always thought that spring is right around the corner when I go to a 3D shoot and can still feel my bow and release by the time I've shot 4 targets. If today is any indication it's not far off.

    I golfed when I was young and had a lot of time. I found it to be a very frustrating game. I am much better at archery, skeet, and other shooting. I also love fishing and there are a lot of lakes and rivers around where I live. I barely have time for my addictions now, I certainly don't need another.
