The Adventures of Hope & Faith of Black Mountain
« on: June 01, 2008, 07:17:00 PM »
Hope is here with me for the 1st journey, and I hope to take her to the Paradise this month for my gathering up and last walk of the property.  Hopefully I'll get a pig with her.

Faith is on her way to Canada with Tom Philips for the Bear Quest 2008.

Wish us luck.

Thanks again to Brent at Black Mountain for donating these two beautiful bows for this years effort.

               


AND, thanks to Tim Roberts and Robert Peel for donating the arm guard/knife combo.  Outstanding guys!!!!

Best of Luck guys!

I just started my '09 St. Judes change jar...'cept I'm stuffing it with BILLS instead of change for Miss Hope!

The schedule says I have her for a Bear Hunt...I wish! We're hunting whitetails unless someone sticks a big ole mossy horn swamp buck to be nicknamed "Bear" up at Buck Jam...  :pray:

I would like to add my name to the list but when I try the address for Dick Easter i get an error message.  Is this due to my computer or is the address wrong?

thanks,

C.D.

Each year for the past few a bowyer steps up and donates two special bows to the cause.  One right and one left.  Members sign up to use them for one week during the year and a journal is kept on each bow.  Teh storys are told on this thread as the year goes by.  

At years end the bows and all of the stuff that goes with them go into the St. Judes Auction and raise money for the kids.

TOGETHER AGAIN!!!  that's right. Hope and Faith are together again. Hope arrived in Wild Wonderful West Virginia this morning. I've had my eye on a nice groundhog for the past couple days so maybe with a little luck me and Hope can get some stew meat. It's gonna be a blast watching folks shoot these beautiful bows at ATAR 2008. Hopefully we'll have some good pictures of the girls while they're here for everyone to see.

well' all I can say is...what a weekend! these two little bows got looked at, handled, shot (over and over) and their pictures taken until they were plum tuckered out. a big thank you to Brent of Black Mountain (now in WV) for these fine bows and for taking the time to visit Hope and Faith at ATAR 2008. also' WOW is all anyone could say about those arm guards. what a work or art.

before this day is out these beautiful bows will be headed to their next adventure. I just hope Greg and Donnie have as much fun with them as we did at ATAR 2008.

again, thank you to everyone involved with not only Hope & Faith but everything behind the scenes with the St. Judes auctions.

Thanks to both of you Brent and Danny for the opportunity to shoot "Faith" at ATAR. She is my kind of bow. I'm a big fan of short lightweight bows. She was that, and pretty also. I shot it at the wing shoot and wish that I had tried the toughman with her.

As Danny said "I just hope Greg and Donnie have as much fun with them as we did at ATAR 2008."

Danny, thanks to you and pass the thanks along to the crew that put on the shoot. Wonderful time, wish I could have stayed longer. It was nice to meet some Tradgang friends. Killee, you are as pleasant as I could have ever imagined. I enjoyed playing with your dog, Spirit- The Sheepeater. Lee Viv, you aren't as tall as I thought you would be. John a Sipsy River, you were a pleasure to spend time with. Jim, thanks for letting me shoot your Banshee's. You got a great bow there bud. I was impressed with your design and workmanship. Not bad at all for a freshman. I expect great things from you.

Brent, you are a gentleman and your wife and daughter are as sweet as can be. I thoroughly enjoyed the bit of time that I spent with you. Though I tried my best, "stuff" that had to be taken care of at camp got in the way of seeing you again later that afternoon. Hope is a slick little thumper, and I envy those who will shoot with her in the hunting fields.

I agree about the Banshees, BTW!

I received Faith on the 17th and shot several arrows before the rains started.  I normally shoot right hand but grow up shooting left.  The bow shot very nice with my 65# cedars.  I mainly wanted to get a close look at the craftsmanship, very nice.  If I could have gotten Hope I would have taken her hog hunting, didn't feel accurate enough with a left hander for hunting.


Thanks to Brent,

take care,
Donnie

Donnie just sent me a PM saying he had put Faith in the mail to me. Looking forward to getting her. I'll probably shoot either my AD heavies or Beman MFX and tune her up with those. Action at the ranch is getting heavy. Saturday I spotted and stalked three different groups of hogs including a huge grey boar. On my way to the boar I got in a standoff with a doe that had a shooter buck behind her. It was a great day out, but no meat was made. Hopefully I will have some great stories to tell with Faith in hand. Right now I have blacktails and hogs on the menu.
