Archery Turning Over a New Leaf

Turning Over a New Leaf

A fall leaf showcasing it's great color variation.
That’s not a new leaf…

New, What’s New?

New, what’s new? If you answered my question with, “ A new year” you would be correct. With a new year approaching, what’s your plan or as everyone else puts it, “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” I’ll give you a few minutes to think about it, and while you do that, I’ll think about mine out loud. 

When I look back at the previous year, 2023, I ponder things I could have done better, or even in fact just done. I also think about things I’ve done well and goals I’ve completed. I picked up the guitar for a short period of time and set it back down. No, I’m not a quitter because most things are trial and error, I now know the guitar and I aren’t a great fit. One thing I do know is that my PSE Uprising Compound Bow and I are because I keep picking it up. 

Leaves Turned Over 2023

  • Consistent Range Time
  • Studied, observed, and learned
  • Shared my experience 

It’s not hard to be consistent with a thing you enjoy, shooting my bow is therapeutic. I guess that’s not much of an accomplishment if it’s not difficult to do. Whatever, I’ll keep it up.  

Are you a little puzzled about The Bow Bully studying, observing and learning? I am The Bow Bully right? What do I have to study, observe or learn? If you ever get to a place where you think you don’t need to study, observe, or learn, whoa buddy…look out!!! Nobody knows everything but it doesn’t mean you can’t soak up what you can whenever you can…or don’t, it’s up to you!

Of course I shared my experience, as often as I can I invite others over to fling the string with me. That’s not the only way you can share, consider this; 

  • Range time (yes invite others over to shoot with you)
  • Share your knowledge 
  • Share your hunting experience
  • Your bow, (it’s okay of you don’t have a PSE, your Bear Archery EV is fine) 

Upping Your Sharing Game

You were on board until that very last suggestion right? These are just suggestions, but if you really want to up your sharing game that would do it. You said you don’t want to share yours, then you could really up your game and get them their own. You don’t have to spend as much on them as you did on you. Here’s one, the Diamond Infinite 305, that’s doable right? 

Leaves to Turn Over in 2024

  • More range time
  • Again, more range time
  • And yes, again, more range time

Yep, that’s my New Year’s resolution! In 2024, my goal is to fling the string even more! Why? Because I love it! Okay my turn to ask you a question, you’ve had time to answer, so finally tell me what’s yours?

PSE Manual and Maintenance Guide

You can ditto mine, that’s fine but let me throw a few things out there. Do you wax (Allen Titan Wax) your strings and oil (Excalibur Ex-Oil) your cams regularly? When’s the last time you had your bow serviced?

“Three and a half years ago!”

Really? Yep room for improvement, add that to your list. I would recommend you make those some of your resolutions before fulfilling the rest because regular maintenance is crucial! 

High Maintenance?

Bows and arrows without regular maintenance can lead to serious consequences. I might be a bully but I don’t want to see anyone learn that lesson the hard way, all you’ve got to do is do what I say and it’s that simple. 

Before you share your range time and it turns into a traumatic experience or your hunt and it becomes an equipment failure story, make sure your gear is properly cared for and operating.  

Finally, If you follow through with my advice, you’ll have more accomplishments to think on when 2025 approaches, and that means less testimony of improvements needed. Exactly what I’m going for, aren’t you? In my opinion those are some safe goals to set, for you and equally important, those around you. 

Happy New Year!

What are you waiting for? Write those on your to do’s for 2024, you do have a list right? Oh, it’s in your head, I guess yours might be reliable…or is it? Last three words from yours truly in 2024, Happy New Year!
