Hope everybody comes through this covid-19 virus ok.   What I see, and what I hear, across the news stations are not matching.... How/Why was people getting sick, and dying, turned into a political thing?  I see thing differently than most do...
But one thing for-sure.... I'm bringing Deet to the next shoot... now is a really bad time to git bit by a tick!

let's hope it stays that way....  :campfire:

I've been busy redoing the shooting range.  I put in a 60 yard shot with a mckenzie gobblin, and a new aimright bear. 

I had an order for some Rinehart targets that was due to ship tomorrow, but they were told to stay home yesterday.   All of Wisconsin is on a stay at home order.    :dunno:

That sounds like your range is expanding, I have one deer target but have not shot it in years. I will have to work even if everything else shuts down.. I also work during Hurricanes.

I,ve moved the VIP lounge, and have 10 3d targets set out, plus the one's at the backstop, plus a vegas 3 spot face, and a three hundred five spot face....   I'm about 70% of the way to where I want it.

 It's coming along....  I've got the shooting lanes set so you can't see any of the upcoming targets until your at that stake; It's not just a lot of targets in a line....There is also no direct arrow retrieval on the 3d path, until you have shot the course with 12 arrows..... There it a trail connecting all the stations from the back side so it avoids the crushed down look, and your taking a real life shot... the loop will bring your back to the 20 yard line for the target faces, and around you go again.... bring your A game, they are all tough shots....   :coffee:

The back trail sounds like a good idea for a private range. I don't care for open targets, I like short trashy shots.

Still good here; I've been keeping a low profile since this started... My daughter has been bringing us groceries once a week....

How's the rest of the group doing?  :campfire:

Ya'll are welcome to come by and shoot, if you get bored.  I ain't goin' nowhere :coffee:

Hope everyone is in good health...

The backyard range is almost ready for prime time....
Here is a short video of the range so far...

It really looks a lot better in person, than it does with this camera...

Nice job on the Range! When the rest of the targets arrive you will have to have at least 12 arrows to finish the range. Which reminds me that I need to get 3 dozen arrow wraps..

The Rinehart shipment came in yesterday.  I was expecting individual boxes, shipped UPS style, but it came fob, on a pallet.


Just getting the boxes out was like Christmas.
