GOING NUTTS!!!!! - GILBERT

Anybody else?? I have not shot my Black Widows going on a month and a half now. Every single day the wind has blow keeping my wind wind flag at a horizontal position every single day for the length of time just mentioned...15 to 25 mph. I am seriously considering building a shooting lane with walls to break the wind......any ideas. This is driving me nutts..LOL!! I have tried hugging my privacy fence but the wind still swirls and plays havoc with my arrow flight. Anybody else going thru the same thing?

Know what you mean! I have similar problems with the wind nearly everyday. I'm so nuts I just applied for a job at a new Academy store opening in my area in their archery/firearms departments. Been completely retired for 7 yrs. & haven't worked for someone else since 1996. Interview went extremely well & I am afraid I will be offered the job. If they give me the money I asked for, I'm going to work again at age 65! My advice is to go to work so you won't have any time to practice. Am I nuts?? Yep!

HA! HA!, you ARE nuts old man. Look who is calling you old. No I am not bored, just like a cigarette smoker trying to quit...going thru nicotine fits? I am going thru Black Widow shooting deprivation, got to get me some arrows flying true and pretty out of my PSA-X, and smacking the heart on a deer target every time....soon!!!!! BTW, how did it go with those two hoodlums attacking you. LOL!!

Wind is the same for me here. Has been horrible for at least a couple of weeks now. Don't effect my shooting however. Heavy bows, that shoot heavy arrows real fast make for real good wind busters. 8^)

I stepped out my back porch this morning to pick up some small branches scattered in my backyard by the wind. I looked to my left and noticed that my wind flag was hanging limp. FINALLY!!!!! I also noticed a squirrel eating something in his little hands, on top of my Morrell broadhead target. I quickly went to my den and strung my Ebony PSA-X, grabbed a couple of arrows and ran outside. From my back porch screen door to my target it is approx 38 to 40 yards. The squirrel was still doing his thing. Fearing that trying to get closer i would scare the squirrel off i decided to take a shot from my back porch point. While i was setting up for the shot i had a change of heart come over me. I could not bring myself to take a shot at one of God's little creature just trying to start his day off. I decided to try for the bulls eye about 12" under him. As i remembered so well, the arrow flew perfect, and smacked 2" to the right of the bulls eye. At that point that little squirrel's world exploded...he jumped up in the air approx. 18" doing a couple of flips in the process, and set new land records heading to one of my Oak Trees. I know that it is on that little squirrels account but that was so funny i am still laughing. I just came back in from a heck of a good, and well awaited shooting session. I will deal with that little acorn thieving little hoodlum later under different circumstances. LOL!!

How would you react if someone shot an arrow 12" below your acorns?
