Sept. 15 through 17, 2023. This is a mixed shoot but lots of traditional shooters attend as well. Awesome place as well, great chicken BBQ on Saturday, and just folks having fun. Here's a bit of a glimpse.

See some arrows coming in from the other side,

It's because the deer travels about 70 yards and turns around, showing the other side on the return trip. :))))) They don't shoot at each other up there.

Interesting moving target they have there.All I've seen before were moving targets that were manually pulled. Awesome idea they got there.Do they have a broadhead course anywhere at this shoot.

No broadhead courses.

Sounds like a good place to be.

Looks like the weather is going to be very nice also. In the mid to upper 70’s and low humidity. You can’t beat that everyone!

As in the past, my wife and I will get up there around 2pm Saturday; visit the vendors, pick up some goodies, and then enjoy BBQ chicken platter, which is excellent. Not like it used to be but still a fun time. Been doing this for 50 years.

Is this the same shoot that has been going on for many years there ? Seems like I remember reading about this one in the old Archery World magazine back in the late sixties or eary seventies. Looks like a real good one for sure.

I only made it up for Saturday, but the weather was just about perfect. Crisp at the start of the day's trad competition, by the time we came off the mountain to shoot the running deer, it was high 60s. Just can't beat a gorgeous day shooting with great people.

I was also there when John Schulz did his seminar. That's been a while ago. I was within 30 miles this year but didn't go over; had a bout all week with S-1 and S-2 issues so hung out at and around our rental cabin all week. Timing is just wonderful at times, hopefully will get things back in order over the next two weeks until bow season. And yes, John Schulz passed away.

George, sorry to hear your trip was messed up by health issues. I didn't go over this year, either. Seems mountain climbing is not part of re-habbing my torn achilles tendon repair, lol.

Also, I sent you a PM yesterday. Wondering if you received it. Take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of your day.
