  • I’m not one of those professional archers who shoot their bow year-round. I am a hunter who has to wipe the dust off of it during this time of year. I know this is the period where I have to begin shooting in order to feel comfortable in various hunting situations when deer season comes about. But it’s so hot right now. And because my wife is not too keen about me setting up an indoor range down the hall in my house, I am going to have to endure the August heat for a chance at October meat.
