    I shot a turkey once and the arrow pinned him to a tree.right in the neck.

    Yes I do love Archery, I am actually good at it. When I was in High School I usually win this activity because I kicked everyones butt in this.

    I'd love to get into this. As a kid I did archery a couple of times, and really enjoyed it. I should find an archery club somewhere. Hmm.

    It's strange, even in NYC, there are only 2 places that have archery ranges. I figured even in NYC there would be more, but oh well.

    Chris, what type of bow do you shoot then?

    I got into bow hunting 5 years ago when my then-new job interferred with gun season. I enjoyed it so much, I continue to despite gun season now being open for me. The last thing I shot with the ol' bow was a HUGE groundhog in my yard at the old place.

    I used to do recurve from age 8 till 16. I haven't picked it back up since I live in the city now and have no place to really practice. I hear though it's very good for people with shoulder injuries to regain strength though. (My phys therapist actually suggested me to pick it back up.)
