    Colorado Dusky Grouse...

    I was elk hunting with my friend Kevin one year, when we spied a grouse sitting between two tree trunks. We ranged the bird at 56 yards. My thought on this shot was that I'd rather not loose an arrow, and suggested we move up a bit. Kevin promptly replied by giving me one of his arrows, saying I think you should shoot it from here... This arrow came from his quiver, and had been through several other grouse by this time, it was not clean, but similar spine. I asked for the arrows weight, and made some adjustments for "fowling" on the shaft, and shot a grouse at 56 yards. My best shooting ever was 3 tennis balls suspended on strings at 60 yards with 3 arrows sporting broadheads. 3 for 3.

    That is some fine shooting. I am nowhere close to that level.

    Thank you. It took a while to get there. It also takes a fair amount of dedication to the sport and good equipment selections. And as I age, I also begin to understand just how much a big dose of youth helps! I doubt greatly that I could repeat those shots today, I haven't shot over 40 yards for several years now.
