Don't let Lostaro pull one over on you about his longbow shooting. I'm old and my memory is getting fuzzy but I do seem to remember grabbing hold to several deer he shot that had holes in them that had been punched with a longbow. Well, punched by a broadhead actually, but they were launched off of a longbow.

I finally received my new Tembo in from Howard Hill archery this past week. Very sweet shooting bow and it loves some of my wooden arrows.
