Post by: Friends call me Pac on July 07, 2013, 10:24:00 PM
Time to start kicking around some ideas.  Who else is thinking about showing up this year?

I'm planning on going again this year. 2nd weekend in October sounds good to me. I think that was a date that was thrown out.  But I'm open to discussion on other dates.

I hope to be able to get with you guys this year. I really am going to try too not have anything going. I hope you guys can make it to the TBA longbow shoot next month. If you can remind me at the shoot and we'll make an announcement about it.

At last year's hunt most folks said the 2nd week in Oct is when they wanted to hunt.  That's fine with me.  

I'll give Tyler a call soon and see how it is going with him.

Might even have to sneak in a pre ARROW scouting trip in Sep.

I am going to try and make it. 2nd weekend sounds good to me. Where are we going to hunt?

The 12th-13th of October?  Yep, so far as I know that sounds good.  Haven' seen a drill schedule that far out yet but I expect it will be the previous weekend, so that should be alright.  I may have to take a personal day on Friday to head down a bit earlier too.  We'll see.

Crystal Springs at Lake Ouachita.  

sweeney can you get your dad to make it this year?
Title: Re: A.R.R.O.W. 2013
Post by: sweeney3 on July 12, 2013, 09:18:00 PM
He'd like to.  He is well past his recurve days and will be shooting a compound (with old Bear razorheads...   :rolleyes: ), but if everyone else can live with that he'd like to tag along for sure.

Post by: PowDuck on July 12, 2013, 10:34:00 PM
He's absolutely welcome. Bring him on. I look forward to meeting him.

Mike, we hunt different pockets and islands semi close to the campground. Some bring boats, some walk out from campsite.

PAC I don't think we want to hunt on Oct 12&13 they are having the big bass splash on the lake that week end will be very rough & dangerous on the water at first light...deer will most likely stay in heavy cover... first place is new truck and a 20 ft bass boat plus 10 grand...every red neck for 1000 mi.s will be there, not the place to be campgrounds will be filled to limit

Oh shoot.  That is no good.  I have drill the first weekend in October.  How's Opening Weekend, 28-29 September?

I'm Ok with September, too. Thanks, Dave, that's good information to know and you're likely right about crowded.

If I can fit it in with work and kids I would love to come along. If I can't perhaps I could just drop by to meet everyone.

I'll probably bring a selfbow/shooter buddy from up here too, if he can get away from work.  He's not on the forum.  Part of the Downtown Hippy Archery Brigade we have going on here in Rogers.

Shoulder is getting better and I have been shooting in the backyard a few days each week.  ARROW will be upon us sooner than you think.  Trying to get ready.

I have yet to be able to attend.  Seems something always gets in the way. Last two years it has been some personal issues and now that I have those worked out I had to use all my vacation time after having a heart cath...Maybe next year I will be able to meet you guys and share a camp and some hunting.  God bless and y'all be safe out there.
Title: Re: A.R.R.O.W. 2013
Post by: Friends call me Pac on August 19, 2013, 04:45:00 PM
Getting closer.  Think I might go on a stump shoot to help get ready.

Post by: PowDuck on August 20, 2013, 07:44:00 AM
Scott, do you have the weekend off? Maybe you could make it for that. It's about a four hour drive from WR I think. We'd love to have you join if you could swing it.
Title: Re: A.R.R.O.W. 2013
Post by: SkottyBoy on August 22, 2013, 12:27:00 PM
I will check it out and see if I can make it happen.

I don't know if I will get those two days off right now.  I usally get mon & tues off.  I am asking but in the event i can't go on that Sat & Sunday I will drive up after work the evening after I get off work.  One way or another I will be there.

Sorry to hear about your back, Dave. Hope you can make it up at least for a visit.

You, too, Pac. Hopefully you'll be able to get off work but if not we'll take you for a visit.

Always good to sit around (or stump shoot) and shoot the bull. Looking forward to getting there.

Got 28-30 Sep off so I am all set for ARROW.  I have to work on the 27th but will get off at 4 pm.  I only live 1.5 miles from work so i plan to have everything ready to go and should be on the road no later than 5 pm.  I'm guessing I should be at Crystal around 8pm.  I'll have my boat to drop off and will need a spot to park the truck and camper but after that i will be ready to go!

Bad news here.  I gotta bail.  I have an army buddy getting married in Kansas and I'm supposed to be there, so I'm going to have to miss this one.  I'd darn sure going to take a bow and get there a day or two early.  As long as I don't get blood on my blues it'll be okay.  You guys have fun and maybe we can get something else going later on.

Wish you could have made it Sweeney, was looking forward to seeing you again.
I thought everyone knew not to get married in or close to hunting season.
Maybe we can get together for a hog hunt later on, I got a medium sized one yesterday morning.

X2.        Except for the hog.

Bo, I gotta get with you. More hogs need to die.

Yes.  I wish I could go too.  I have a new ERC longbow I made last winter that I plant to hunt with this year.  74" tip to tip.  Shoots hard and quiet (imagine that.  I made a quiet bow?  Noooo...) I kinda wanted to show it off, but can't swing two trips that long that close together.  Maybe we can finally do some hogs or another deer hunt this winter or spring though.  Have a good time down there and eat some duck poppers for me!!

Got the camper on the truck and plan to stock it later this evening.

Talked with Tyler but didn't get around to the hunt.  We only talked a few minutes so I'll try to give hime a call when he gets off work and ask what his plans are.

I'll leave work at 4 pm on Friday.  Everything will be ready to go so I should be on the road by 4:30.  I'm guessing ETA at 6:30 pm Friday night.  I have to be at work on Tues but plan to hunt Monday evening before heading home.
