Thinking of Sawmill this year. Like to shoot. Don't need anything so won't miss the venders. Hope to enjoy the less crowded camping.

Won’t make it this year due to shoulder replacement surgery June 5th. We normally do a day trip. Enjoy this shooters shoot. Great courses awesome exercise. See you next year. Have fun.

Can not wait,will be the first year for me? We are not sure if we will camp or get a room, is there usually room if a guy decides last minute to camp there?

From: Andy Man
Date: 11-Jun-18




I'm pondering it

7 hour drive from VA for me ; kinda long drive by myself

was a great shoot though ; also wife healing from a total hip replacement and question the wisdom of being able to leave her alone (though seems to be getting around just fine just afraid of a fall

still have some time to ponder

I went year before last 3under, and camping space was fine (I got there thursday evening ) by Saturday it was getting filled up but still spots- but nothing like Denton Hill

From: Candyman

I'll be there Friday or Saturday. Great Shoot.

From: Carcajou

From: bogenschuetze

If the weather cooperates, our group of seven or eight trad archers should be there for the entire event. Hope some of our grandkids join us for a day as well. Always a fun time!

Dusk to dawn Saturday. Probably hit the Safari first, then climb up the hill from there.

Beautiful courses at Sawmill, Keith and his crew do an A+ job on the target setup.

My Jeep should be under the big Pine tree as you come into the parking lot, stop by and say "Hi".

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

Thanks Andy Man and WidowSax ,we'll be there thurs-sun ,whats the requirement for the fire ring, in case the are none left when we get there, and how far are the shots on the Eagle Eye qualifier?

From: Yewbender
Date: 14-Jun-18




Yup...Sawmill is a shooters shoot for sure! Plenty of camping room for sure unlike Denton Hill and way less crowded!

Wish i was going but will be attending another shoot that weekend. So Craig...i’ll say Hi now since i won’t see you. Also good to see you last weekend and many others at Marsh Hill!

Have a great time and safe trip.

Nothing but x's at that shoot Gary, have fun!

As for me, I will be hunting African game at first light, then I will climb the ridge and try to double lung the Caribou that lives up there.

Heading down from there, I will put the sneak on that big bedded buck that is just inside the woods.

And if that big Gator is out sunning himself in the pond......he's in trouble.

So far this year, we have attended 4 local shoots, The Tennessee Classic, Cloverdale, Compton tomorrow, and a 5th local shoot on Sunday. Now, We are trying to arrange things so that we can make the 9 hour journey to Sawmill for at least the weekend!

Hopefully it works for us. We actually flew in from D.C. to Indianapolis on Memorial day morning so that we could drive an hour home from the airport, grab our bows, and make a shoot another hour away from home. So, we are known to do crazy things, and Sawmill is one of the few shoots that we haven't been to. We really enjoy the area and never miss ETAR, but ETAR is still too far away.

Perhaps you will see us there. Unfortunately, our older children can't get free and will still be home. But, the youngest, my wife, and I just might make it.

Silly me. I took the thread title to mean it was an offer to cut up bow wood... or maybe he was actually selling a sawmill... nevermind :^)

Thanks Craig! I’ll try my best.

10-4 Mike. I usually finish up in the"Pen".

Darren, Bright and early over at the Safari Sat. See if you can get out of the sack and meet me there. It will be about the same as hunting, nice first light.

Looks like some beautiful scenery! How many vendors go? ~Wojo

From: monkeyball

Years ago there were a dozen good vendors. The last few years, maybe 4. J &M Traditions are usually there, sometimes Fedora bows, JRJ Knives, etc.

I have tried to get some others to get involved with this shoot (as Vendors), they would do well.

The scenery is beautiful and the atmosphere is totally laid back. It is a good place to unwind to say the least.

If you camp, are there showers available to use?

From: monkeyball
Date: 19-Jun-18




Yes there are.

And if the weekend weather continues here in PA like it has so far......you will just be able to stand out side on one of those days.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

From: mcgroundstalker
Date: 19-Jun-18




Showers are available to campers... That's a good thing...

Not too many vendors, guess (they) know most shooters show up ready to rock and roll... Now the Swap Meet is a good one... I've always found something I "need" there and sold a bunch of stuff too...

From: Fletch36
Date: 19-Jun-18




I’ll be there as a vendor this year. Mostly vintage wool items, but I’ll also have camo, boots, and other odds and ends related to hunting and archery. Looking forward to shooting with my dad and hopefully some of you all. I’ll be setting up Thursday morning and will be there all day Thursday and Friday and the afternoon on Saturday. Drive safe!

Looking at the weather forecast, looks like Thur. Fri. will be the drier days of the shoot.

Sat is a wash out . I sat in that stuff for three days at the Baltimore shoot . Long drive to just sitin the rain ??

From: monkeyball
Date: 21-Jun-18




I hear you Dan, every Traditional Shoot since Baltimore,here in PA has had at least one day of rain during it.

Just one of those years. I am still heading up Sat. with a Jeep load of goodies to wheel and deal with. Of course if it's raining hard, they won't be coming out of the Jeep.

Sadly, we are reconsidering our trip to Sawmill. We can only make Saturday which doesn't look good as far as weather.

From: ShadeHaven
Date: 22-Jun-18




I'm going... but now I wonder if I should just skip camping and sleep in my jeep. I'm not into getting soaked again like Baltimore. Made for a miserable stay.
