I like the ground and my Waldrop Pac Seat.
Here's the results - 11 yards off the ground with a reverse handle ASL of my own making.  Not my biggest buck by any means, but the one I'm most proud of.

No judgment about hunting from a stand but I love the ground game.  I primarily hunt state game lands in heavily populated areas, so the choice is pretty much made for me. 

Also, I really like the look of a Sweka designed bow.  Never shot one but I’d like to. Please let me know if you’re ever in the Hershey area and want to fling some arrows.

I like it on the ground, this will be my first year in Georgia and will hunt from a pac-seat. Just keep the wind in your face and movement to a minimum !!!
In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities. In the expert's there are few...So the most difficult thing is always to keep your beginner's mind...This is also the real secret of the arts: always be a beginner.  Shunryu Suzuki

Evan - Thanks for the compliment!  If you make it up to the Shade Mountain shoot in September, you can play with one all you want.

Drew first blood with my newish ASL and it was a monster. About 17 yards it scurried across my shooting lane and the rest is history. May have been a bit overbowed but it worked. :biglaugh:

I got chewed out shooting my Morningstar in my back yard again.  I was shooting really good from a chair at about 18 yards and a woman got on my case about trying hurt that poor little rabbit that was four feet directly in front of me, sitting by the cranberry bush.  My bow arm shoulder was in line with the target that i was shooting at, to my right 90 degrees away from the rabbit.  I was merely working on my follow through, I find that with bows that naturally sit  more on line at release, I can shoot much tighter groups.  I was waiting for a fellow that has some follow through issues with his own bow.  I informed the woman that Mrs. Brown Ears, does not know that she is a rabbit, and asked her to shut up and stop scaring Mrs. Brown Ears.
Back to the subject, When bows don't stay on line with a shot, i always wonder why.  All of my bows are steady that way, When I rework a bow, that is my primary goal.  I won't say what model bow this fellow bought, he bought it used, but I could not get it to remain on target at release either and I believe that is where his problems are starting from.  Every bow that i have given out are ones that i have adjusted, but I have a sprained finger in my right hand and am afraid to offer the same for his otherwise good looking bow.  I wonder how many longbows are out there that are off time.  For those that have shot bows that have perfect limb timing like my Berry Morningstar, will recognize that something special.  Needing to set up a longbow with nocking point and brace way out of normal is not a fix.

My oldest bow is getting a workout as i type.  Friend of ours from central Iowa, dropping off stuff for his college age kid, stopped by while i was grilling some of the last of our venison burger on the grill from last years little six pointer.  he started going on why he has to use a recurve because he only has a 27" draw and anything over 45 pounds feels stiff to him, because you need at least 55 pounds in longbows.  As he was eating I told him that there is a 42@26 longbow that killed the burger he was eating.  He said, 'no way'. After we ate I loaded it, showed him some basic form, longbow style, he has a 26" draw. He has been out back thumping my target for almost two hours.  I cannot shoot with him, I have a sprained finger and wrist.  Oh crap, he found my deer target.

On August 1st I promised myself that I would shoot 50 arrows per day with my ASL.  To accomplish this goal I made a 10-yard “chip shot” target that I can use 24/7.  It works well but I am learning that I shouldn’t shoot so many arrows at the target all at once.
