    No greenery yet either. It's currently 22 degrees.

    Yep weather has not been very good for shooting up here in the NW... well not bows anyways lol. Between the wind and the rain longer than 40 is hard to keep on target. I won't miss the bag but those dots have been pesky things in this weather

    I will get into the mix here sometime in the next two weeks. I have some pics of some 100 yard groups with my Strother SX Rush. I just got my Rytera Seeker 365 set up and tuned the rest and sighted in for 20 yards. I will have to go to the range to get the rest of the sight all dialed. Here are some pics of my 100 yard groups from the SX Rush with more to come when the seeker is ready to go. I will take some better photos when I go out with the seeker of where it is launching from to where it is impacting.

    Honestly, that's some pretty good shooting. I doubt that I can even see 100 yards any more. Getting too old and my bifocals won't focus that far out.

    This is why Speciality Archery makes Clairifers and Verifiers, and HHA makes lens! But you knew that.

    Yeah, and I have a 4X lens and Verifiers. I'm considering just trying a pair of +1.25 or +1.50 reading glasses. As it is, I'm far sighted and still can't see thru a peep with glasses on. I'm not going to say it sucks getting old. Getting old is just part of the game of life, and I've got a lot to be thankful for. For one thing I have, or HAD, more disposable income. Just a month ago I went and wrote a check for $125K to buy my daughter a new house (pending divorce). There are certain school districts I will not allow my 3 yr. old granddaughter to attend so I had to look out for her. Now I own two houses, but a smaller bank account.

    Holy Crap! That is some tight grouping for 100 yards. Nice shooting!!! I knew you target guys could drop them in at that range.
    Bought a Martin, Then my wife gave me a Rytera so.......I joined the forum.
    Then won the Elite on Archery Talk.
    I am blessed.

    Funny thing is, I do not consider myself a target shooter at all. I practice in the backyard out to 30 yards, go to usually around 6 3-D shoots a year and every once in awhile practice at the range so I can get some real yardage. I shoot my exact set-up I am hunting with and do not even own a "target bow". I am just a hunter that likes to shoot my bow and if I can shoot at least 5 times a week I am happy and doing good. During the summer I will venture to the range to shoot long yardage at least once every week, but I teach during the school year so it gives me flexible weeks in the summer. Thanks for all the compliments though, I do work hard at honing my craft.
