So much knowledge, so much Heart, Mr. Bob Hix, it was such a pleasure to visit with him @ the Bass Pro Fall Hunting Classic
Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing well. Can you believe that this summer is passing by so fast? I really enjoy hunting but I really enjoy summer more at times. Hehe
I had to share my 3D Archery experience with you. We were invited by Max Archery to come to their 3D Archery Shoot in Montrose. So TJ and the kids loaded up and we headed out early Saturday morning. We had such a great time once arriving. For never having the opportunity to shoot in a 3D Archery shoot before, we were very excited to experience this event as a family. The setups of the targets were challenging for the adults but very accessible for the kids. The targets were very angry at the girls and me. I shot most of the targets in the leg and the girls mostly in the backside. Now TJ on the other hand, he was bulls-eye all the way. (Yes I am admitting it!) LOL.
From a family that does many activities together this was one of the most enjoyable times we had this summer. We would highly recommend Max Archery‘s events to any family that would want to have an enjoyable time.
Max Archery’s Team (Jesse and his family, plus Zach and his family) are top notch. Two of the most down to earth people you could ever hope to meet. It was such a pleasure to be invited to their event and we can’t wait to go to another one. If you ever need any help with your bow, I would highly suggest giving them a call. www.maxarchery.com
This Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Western Archery Event at Cabela’s. I was able to hang out in the Archery Range and teach a few new comers on shooting a bow. I also had the pleasure of working with JJ with Prois Women’s Apparel and other Pro Staff members throughout the store.
A taught a Mom, Son and Daughter from Washington State to shoot a bow. Their dad had shot a bow when he was little and he was so excited that his kids and wife gave it a try. The family was all smiles when leaving the range.
I would have to say my most memorable moment was when 2 little boys came into the Range. The Dad was holding the youngest boys hand as I set up his big brother to shoot. I could hear the little one asking his dad, “Can I shoot Dad?” The dad saying, “Son I think you’re to little.” Hearing his little voice stayed in the back of my mind as I helped his big brother. With a POW and a Prize I could see the disappointment on the little ones face, tugging on his dad asking again, “Can I, Can I?” I kneeled down and asked the youngster his name and he said “Riley”. I said, “Riley how old or you?” He shows me his fingers and counts, “one, two, and three” he says… With a big grin I said if you can count to 3 then you can shoot. Riley’s eyes lit up as bright as the sun and his dad looked at me with a big smile. I got Riley set up and helped him pull the string back and with the first release a BIG POW of the balloon!!! I think he was the most excited. It was the biggest smile I think I saw on a Dad’s face. With Big High Fives the boys were off and all I can do is grin with another success in the Bow Range.
With many more smiles throughout the day, I was so happy and proud to know that we had such a great turn out at Cabela’s and I was able to help so many people. It is the best feeling I know.
