Work guys Bravo dry fire I I drive fired My bow Um listen to everything going on all the Excitement These guys you know giving Pro tips and Stuff I need to listen into that and uh Forgot one step so your Hill looks like This yeah yeah you are going to shoot Right in this scenario if you don't lean Into them you didn't have an arrow I Literally It's happened every year it's happened Ever this is why we don't have Conversations while someone's shooting But just step off let somebody else Shoot I'll look at it Okay Oh my gosh so best case scenario [ __ ] Fletch down that's about as low as you Can go and over here that's like What is that on your tape 85 87 so in a Situation like this and all the terrain That we're on the hill is coming down Like this like really steep so if you're Standing pointing this way you are going To shoot to the right if you don't lean In deliberately past what your bubble Says into the hill because as you sit There and pull It's gonna come back if you stood here With your eyes shut just drew back You'd be canted like this so remember When you're standing on a side Hill like This everything about your bow is going

To want to do this you got to push it Into the hill more than you think it Feels awkward but we'll get you hitting In the middle Mohawk gleaming in the sun Wow That's five points baby I'm taking those Five all day So uh it's been a little while since uh The incident we won't speak of How have we recovered how are we feeling Now Um The bow is shooting fine Can we leave it at that no it's it's Cool these are these are really hard Shots like I I expect it to be difficult I had no idea I mean This is marsupial gear um in my opinion The best spinal harness on the market Um I got my Rangefinder here on this Side just an extra pouch it holds my Um my havelon knife and my it's been Reach I got my calls in front cell phone Pouch in the in the front or closest to Your chest and super easy access the Magnets I I hear Dan mention uh the Magnets a lot and I I would have to Agree magnets are totally legit and um Keeps your keeps your glass clean the Laponia twos GTX and they fit like a Slipper lightest boot I've ever owned Crispy all the way I do all my right 91. That would look so crazy

It was that one with the black panther Building a house [Laughter] We've been trying to like not let you Guys catch up to us is it and we suck Dude Are you guys just shoot shoot and go go Just skip targets so we could catch you Yeah you know what I listened to your Podcast with Dan Evans the best elk Hunter I know because he is I got a lot Out of it but yeah I really I've been Moving it for a couple years to try this You know he's so laid back that's why He's so good yeah He doesn't he's so all the guys that are Good are just not just chill there's Very little Eagles yeah Thank you Made a life for himself all on his own Yeah the trades super humble it's a Phenomenal Archer talking about it the Other day Yeah like mild yeah it's cool where I'm At it's cool you're not too far from Canada and give me some stuff yeah so Seriously shooting my arrow over there Yeah 433 what's your what's your grains on Your hair She's shooting your arrow and she's Shooting it better than you shot I mean How's that feel I don't know about that No I mean we saw it she's definitely out

Shooting you with your own Arrow you're Spreading rumors but no yeah you know She found my arrow there's a few out There I didn't have the heart to tell Her that entire arrow is worth about 80 Bucks when you do all the math but you Know what Better hurt but you know what I did I Had her sign my arrow somewhere in front Of it oh there we go it's Steven's wife I think Steve Drake's wife I forgot her First name her phone number on there hey [Laughter] Face down Oh [ __ ] I was setting down [Laughter] If I didn't love you Yeah halfway try I gave you a little Dose I always felt like a lot but I tell You these the elevation here is no joke Oh yeah I'll wipe you right out I need To spend some more time at elevation the Chief XP with me to this for a very Specific reason whenever you change Elevations drastically or that sort of Thing your side tape is going to be Different no matter what it's kind of Hard to reprint one so I wanted Something that I could use a program for To adjust it instead of an actual Printing tape Now Grant if you brought a Computer and a printer and Archer's Advantage and all that and want to Change your tape and that's there you

Could but you never know how far off It's going to be I'm about two to three Yards hot at 100 yards from what I was At home Dan's at least four probably and Because I have it on my phone against my Ballistic tape right here I can change the numbers in here and Then use those marks just like I would Like I cited it in at home so that's why I use that and you can hunt with it I Mean it's it's a single pin ten Thousandths green pen No lenses none of That it's just you have the ability to Change your marks and your phone from Anywhere so that's why I use that and Anybody who shoots Target and travels Uses that no but they're not they don't Have a tape on the side of their belt They have that Cruiser on these long Shots Well it almost the hardest part of Shooting a long shot I mean granted your Bubbles really critical your exact Yardages are critical your exact drops Are critical elevation changes are Critical but the number one thing that's Hard is staying in your peep there's any Drawback you can get it squared up you Can get it anchored up line it repeat Line up your housing everything looks Great and then you come down and find Your target and start pointing and Pulling on it you're drifting out of it Because that's not the normal position

For your peep to be in that's not your Normal way you anchor or point so you Have to force yourself into that Position and your head wants to go back To where it was because you're so Subconsciously used to it being like That you have to really really focus a Ton on your peep and front housing at Distance it's like it's the biggest Thing that you'll get variants on okay Look at that shot Josh it's a shame you Got in the way of it so it's not on film Thank you Keith okay we did it total Arts challenge day one these are the Subs they did not disappoint great dudes Justin and Jesse that's cool uh shot uh The second course today 25 targets we Hit some foam oh man it was great I Don't think we hit a lot of elevens Unless your name was Josh Jones he did Really well today but we got day two Tomorrow I think I'm gonna shoot uh Maybe an elk course this afternoon we do Have weather coming in guys but just Getting to know them is an honor it's a Privilege never have I ever had a bad Experience with Subs you guys are the Best we thank you and stick around Because tomorrow is day two it'll be Just as fun how was your day The day was awesome Um I I couldn't be more pleased about it In all reality uh this first time ever Shooting 3D
