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.
You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.

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.

Oh my! Now, THAT is a bow. Axiously awaiting a tale of blood trails. :)
