    When my brother in law first started getting me into archery, I shot his bow at a delta deer target, and pierced its ear... Last year I shot a grouse, the arrow went right over its back, bounced off the roadway and went into the wild blue. I finally found it about 20' up a tree. I had to get my climbing stand out to retrieve it!

    And even though it wasn't an arrow, when I was about 6 I was shooting a sling shot in the yard, and decided to try and hit a robin... missed the robin and nailed my mom's glass galon jar of sun tea... needless to say she took the sling shot away lol!

    That was funny stuff.....

    In your defence it might have helped if my draw wasnt 2"'s longer than your......


    As for the topic, I got a pass through on my bag target a few weeks back and got the back wall of my garage through both lungs. Shhhhhh.....dont tell the wife

    Not a bow but when I was about 6 my dad decided to let me shoot his 7mm Rem Mag at a coyote in a wheat field. I had the shock under my right arm, looking through the scope with my left eye and pulled the trigger. The round went through a T post that was about 3 feet infront of us (I was trying to follow the 'yote and dad didnt see the post), I missed the 'yote and my right cheek looked like my dad punched me.

    Went over to my neighbors to help him tune his bow. I drew his bow back and it went off and through his Snap-On tool box. I guess I showed him how to tune a bow. Also multiple holes through the garage wall. My wife asked me why I thought the siding was cracking. I played dumb!!

    A few years ago I was shooting in my garage, I was adjusting the T-handle type of rest I was using and it didnt hold. I put one through the window of the garage door taking out the windsheild of my truck. Adding insult to injury I busted my lip open too when the release let go!....
