Several of us Trad shooters in the Land Between the Lakes area have been talking about putting a Traditional Group together. To shoot and socialize (B/S) at the archery range in LBL off of hwy. 68/80.

Any one interested?

Jim just checked my E, will try to keep everyone informed from hear for know. Have about 5 trad shooters over on this side of the lakes that I know of, sure there are more.

I will see if we can put a meeting together this fall at the range in LBL.

Will keep in touch Ernie

Put me down Ernie! I need contact with birds of my own flock. Let me know where and when and I'll be there with bells on.

Ah yes, I can envision a campfire with a bunch of fellow liars, each trying to out do the others. Sounds like a ball.

Bent wood and feathers. I'd love it. Spread the word. Let's get things rollin'.

Sounds to be a splendid opportunity to be capitalized on.

Will be looking forward to updates.

Much appreciation for working to put this event together.

The range at LBL is an old NFAA field archery range. 14 carpet and fome butts. 10 to 80 yds. Most are quite new.

We are going to put stakes or bricks a reasionable traditional distances. It is a place you can go an shoot anytime you want.

Count me in. Let us know about dates. I will let my buddies know.

You should post the information on events and gathering up top as well more people may see it better up there to.

It's a pretty nice wooded range. Nice Shelterhouse, Porta John (it ain't nice, but beats a tree) and I think it has a fire ring.

2d target faces aren't expensive if wanted to use 'em on occasion. Someone's done some recent clean up of the weeds and brush.

This could work out if we can get a core of people to support it.

As I said, I'm in and ready for the next step Ernie. Pull the trigger.

Well we set a date Oct 26. at the LBL range.

We can shoot a round and check-out the range. We will discus starting a Traditional Bowhunting group hear in west KY.

Shooting will start at 9am or so?

Lunch will be provided.

Info; Email or call Ernie at 270-522-1776

PS This is the Youth Quota hunt weekend.

I should be able to make that. Sound good. Where is the range?
 
Posted by Oldbow KY (Member # 39512) on :
 
The LBL range is off Hwy. 68/80 next to the rifle range. It is about 1/2 way between the Trace (main north/south Rd.) and Lake Barkley bridge. North side off road.
 
Posted by Jim from Maine, now in Kentucky (Member # 2966) on :
 
Thanks. I've seen the sign for the rife range but haven't gone in to take a look.

Sounds like a great idea getting to meet other TG guys. Will try and make it. A formal group would lend itself to better communications among us. Thx for the invite.
 
Posted by Oldbow KY (Member # 39512) on :
 
We are all set, will have lunch for everyone, bring something to drink.

We will get a West Ky Trad group going for the future.

Great job Ernie. We missed all you guys that couldn't make it, and you missed a good time. Fun, laid back shoot amongst some new friends. And lunch to boot.

Lookin' forward to the next 'gathering'.

+1 for good job,Ernie.

Nice to meet the rest of you too.

BTW, did I leave one of my wooden arrows somewhere there? Don't need it. Just trying to figure out where I DID leave it.

Jim
 
Posted by Simplify (Member # 39128) on :
 
Ouch Jim. Yes I found a woodie back by the bag after you left, but we all thought it didn't look like the ones you'd been using. I'm afraid we left it for whoever lost it.

Sorry.
 
Posted by Jim from Maine, now in Kentucky (Member # 2966) on :
 
Thanks, I might drive over and take a look--or not. It's only a few miles, but then I can about make up another arrow in the time it would take to drive the round trip.
