3D targets needed

I am looking to purchase slightly used 3D targets for a non-profit shoot to help raise funds for all expense paid hunts put on by “All Things Outdoors.” ATO takes Men, Women and Children who are terminally ill or have life altering situations on a fully guided all expense first class hunt of a lifetime. Most of us probably never give much thought to what it would be like to not be able to ride a 4-wheeler out to our treestands and climb up and harvest a deer. Some of  these individuals have never been able to do so, or have had something tragically happen to them that has suddenly stripped these abilities away and they can never get them back. We truly have so much to be thankful for. All of the hunts at ATO currently take place on a Texas ranch in a Christian environment. So if anyone knows of any upcoming shoots that may be interested in selling the targets after a shoot at a discounted rate or donating targets to benefit this awesome and deserving cause please contact me. Check out www.allthingsoutdoors.org

UNCLE TED BOWHUNTING TECH TIPS

 
UNCLE TED BOWHUNTING TECH TIPS-The Road to Backstraps
by Ted Nugent
 

I bow hunted 360 days in 2009. Being the first year in my life that I didn’t tour, at the tender age of 61 I figured why not! And let me tell you, dear Lord it was exciting!
 
I started bow hunting around 1955 with my dad. We didn’t know exactly what we were doing, but we sure loved doing it. Rarely killed anything in those early years, but we learned the hard way. Eventually, we began to figure it out.
 
In 2009, I killed numerous bears, moose, hogs, kudu, impala, warthog, nyala, sable, eland, waterbuck, wildebeest, Lechwe, Oryx, Aoudad, axis deer, fallow deer, sika deer, Nilgai antelope, blackbuck antelope, mule deer, javelina, whitetails galore, black tails and a bunch of turkeys. It was a spectacular hunting dream come true.
 
The only thing better than bow hunting is more bow hunting. I give away sacred meat as gifts to the deserving. It is a beautiful thing.
 
And as always, it takes constant trial and error and a relentless determination and tenacity to kill game consistently with sharp sticks. As a perfect human being, I blow it royal on occasion. It is how we are made. Pretty darn good, but ultimately incomplete, and mistakes will be made. The real trick in life is to learn from our mistakes, and as someone who bow hunts more than probably any human being alive, my mistakes are aplenty. And hence, so are my lessons.
 
From these often painful lifetime bow hunting lessons comes a few clear and present truisms that I am pleased to share with my Blood Brothers of the mystical flight of the arrow. Fortunately in this day and age, unlimited lessons abound from the plethora of bow hunting TV shows, informative articles by professional bow hunting writers and shared information at the ubiquitous archery shops across America and beyond.
 
My first recommendation is to pay close attention to the master bow hunters on TV. The best of the best like Chuck Adams, Michael Waddell and his Bone Collectors, Fred Eichler and his stunning bow hunting wife Michelle. Great information on strategies can be found on nearly every show by Randy Ulmer, Greg and Jeff Miller, Pat Reeves, Lee and Tiffany Lekosky and so many others. Some provide more instruction than others, but I for one watch as many as I can in order to glean applicable info from them.
 
Great writers like some of those above, plus Joe Bell, Brandon Ray, Mike Ray and numerous other die hard bow hunters will steer you straight, and if paid attention to, provide lessons from them before you have to make mistakes yourself.
 
If I had to chose one word to overview bow hunting, it would be “stealth”. Quiet, ultra aware, sneaky, tuned in stealth.
 
Stealth is ultimately all about a higher level of awareness. For modern man to attain a higher level of awareness than the beasts we hunt is not an easy thing. In fact, it is almost impossible. But it can be done, and by tuning to our surroundings with every ounce of our fiber, our actions, everything, our chances at penetrating the mystical defense zone of prey animals increases exponentially to the effort we put forth. That’s bow hunting 101.
 
Hunt ultra slow. Even in our tree stands. Remain crazy still. Move like a sloth. Radar our surroundings. Examine every detail. Stop often and go as slow as we possibly can. Fred Bear always told me to stay in the shadows and to not step on anything I can step over. Sneaky is as sneaky does.
 
Not just the stealth necessary to get within bow range of the beast, but the imperative stealth of coming to full draw without alerting the animal. The number one violation of this stealth consideration is the self imposed curse of so many archers choosing a bow with too heavy a draw weight. This is a pet peeve of mine, as I am convinced that it is the number cause of attrition in our sport. The archery industry itself is mostly to blame, as it is oftentimes nearly impossible to find a bow under 70 pounds at a pro shop anywhere.
 
Many of my bow hunting friends and I kill everything that walks with 45-50 pounds draw. My petite little wife Shemane, and others, kill consistently with less than 40 pounds. This way we can draw our bows without lifting them up in the air or contorting our bodies which is certain to alarm game. Bottom line, lighter is better. Graceful bow hunting kills game, not kinetic energy and velocity. Know it.
 
Silence is imperative, and that comes from soft, quiet clothing and gear, and how we move. Our arrows sliding across the rest is often the cause of close by game becoming alarmed to our presence. Silence that bow and arrow rest.
 
Scent is always critical. Even with the incredible scent reducing clothing and sprays available today, that I absolutely believe in and use, it is nearly impossible to remain scent free to the degree necessary to fool the nose of prey animals. Wind direction should always be considered and utilized. The nose knows.
 
Timing is a key component of stealth. Even with perfect camouflage, critters can pick up on the slightest movement. Don’t draw that bow if you can see the animal’s eyeball. And not just the target animal, but any animal that might pick up on our movement and alert the others. Wait for the best shot opportunity possible, and then when you decide to draw, do it. Do not get caught at partial draw, or you’re done.
 
Obviously, those who bring home the backstraps do so because they hunt where the game is. Advance scouting will save us time, so we don’t waste any hunting where there is no or little game. Zero in on the best habitat with the most game activity to maximize opportunities.
 
Do not underestimate the benefits of baiting game. If you don’t like it, don’t do it, but I am a big fan of baiting. When acorns are raining down, or alfalfa fields provide the bait, take advantage of them. But if a little spilled corn or C’Mere Deer will help present a shot, for God’s sakes why not?
 
A mock scrape it bait. Food plots are bait. Apple trees, or apples tossed about are bait. Acorns are bait. Waterholes are bait. Doe pee is bait. Use it all. Have fun. Kill game. Live it up.
 
Practicing with archery tackle is more demanding to reach deadly proficiency than with firearms. I believe it is a daily thing. Aim small, miss small. Pick a spot. Shoot 3D animal targets to memorize the exact spot on a form so it all falls into place naturally at the moment of truth. Practice makes perfect, particularly in bow hunting.
 
A cocked, locked and ready to rock bow hunter must be in good physical and mental shape. Good sleep, a smart diet, and overall health is essential to be at the top of our game. Archery is 90% mental, so good physical conditioning and a solid, at ease confidence is imperative.
 
These are some of the Nugent Bow hunting Rules my family, friends and I adhere to. They can make the difference between backstraps and heartbreak. And we all know that backstraps are better every time. Backstraps or bust.

Show time at the 12th Annual St. Louis Deer Classic and Outdoor Expo

Show time at the 12th Annual

St. Louis Deer Classic and Outdoor Expo


 

Starched Wrangler jeans, starched George Strait shirt, polished boots, Rocking A belt buckle & belt, and a cowboy hat and my wardrobe is complete.  It’s almost show time at another “HAVE BOW WILL TRAVEL” appearance.  When you see this gear out you know it’s time for some baby aspirin busting, bow and arrow razzle dazzle!  SHOWTIME.  Let’s get with it.
 
The weekend of February 19-21, 2010 I was in Collinsville, ILL for the 12th annual St. Louis Deer Classic and Outdoor Expo.  The Gateway Expo Center is home to the show and is a great facility for this type of show.  The show started in the St. Louis area and was recently moved into this new building.  There were lines to get in and the show isles seemed packed, so this show seemed pretty popular. 
 
The building had lots of room for the booths, an indoor archery range, seminars, and lots of those big Illinois and Missouri whitetail bucks.  I saw one full mounted buck taken with a bow that scored 209.  It was a great trophy and I’ll bet the owner was proud of it.  Those farm country bucks get really big.
 
Bill & Sandy Weisner were at the show with their new company “Bear Scents”.  This company fits Bill “Bear crazy” Wesiner to a T, he loves bear hunting and continues to do his “bear hunting seminars” across the country.  We usually make time to eat a few meals together while at the show.  I also grabbed lunch with my pal Bob Whitehead from the Outdoor Guide magazine.  Bobby is a great friend and does a super job with Outdoor Guide.  His pal Ray Eye and I did a radio interview last weekend to promote the appearance in Collinsville.  Ray didn’t make the show, he was at the NWTF National Convention in Nashville.  Eye is well respected for his turkey hunting abilities and his successful radio program Eye on the Outdoors.  People like Ray and Bobby deserve a pat on the back for promoting the outdoors via their radio show and magazine.
 
The promoter’s grandson Shane was my sidekick for the shows.  He did a great job tossing targets and was a great assistant.  I appreciate the crowds that came out & the ones that stayed for autographs.  Sunday’s show was our best and probably largest of the weekend.  Afterward the hall was packed with folks waiting for autographs.  That lets me know I am doing my job when we go through a lot of publicity photos in one weekend. 
 
This was my second show with the new Hoyt Formula RX recurve bows.  These bows are awesome and very accurate!  If you haven’t watched the bow tube interview with Hoyt engineer Douglas Denton yet, visit :

This area is a great area full of archery history.  Earl and Ann Hoyt operated the original Hoyt company near by in Natural Bridge, MO and later Sky Archery.  Several folks told me stories about Earl and Ann during the weekend.  There’s a huge interest in traditional archery in this area.  We also had big crowds at my last appearance there several years ago, I think it was 2004.   I promoted the local Hoyt dealer that had a booth at the show.
 
I want to thank everyone for coming to see my show.  We head to Green bay, Wisconsin next for the WISCONSIN DEER CLASSIC.  The weekend after that I’ll be at the Iowa Deer Classic in Des Moines, Iowa.   The HAVE BOW WILL TRAVEL tour rolls on… seeing is believing, see you at the show!
 
That’s the latest folks, until next time Adios & God Bless.

Shoot Straight,
Frank
