Archery on a Sunny September Afternoon
Today I went out to the James A. Reed Wildlife Area to shoot archery, enjoy the beautiful autumn day, and take some photos. I had a lot of fun. There are 28 stations. I accidentely forgot my water bottle, so I quit after 23. Plus, between the lost and broken arrows, I was down to three by that time. The targets ranged between 10 and 60 yards away, often having to shoot up or down hill while standing on a slope. Add in the trees and leaves to shoot around, and it was challenging to say the least. In the future, I will wear hiking boots and, if it has rained recently, expect to get wet, as the course crossed the creek bed several times.
Also - there was a lot of stinging nettle, and my arrows ended up there a lot!
