    The Anarchy and I brought home some hardware today.

    Well I went and participated in the 900 round FITA event in the Kansas State Games today as my first ever official archery tournament. I shot in the Adult, Bowhunter Freestyle and brought home the bronze with an 849. I was a little disappointed since I shot an 861 just a few days ago in practice but, that was practice and it wasn't near as hot as today. It would have been the silver if it wasn't for a couple lapses in focus and a freak hand cramp that fired my release prematurely. Literally on my final shot of the tournament, my ring finger quickly cramped up and "hinged" my thumb trigger, forcing the barrel into my thumb and firing it before I was fully set. It threw the arrow up to an 8 and I lost second by 1 point. Oh well, it still was a lot of fun and I met some great people. The medal also qualified me to shoot in the State Games of America shoot in Lincoln, NE next summer. That's where the medal winners from the last 3 years state games, from all states, gets to come and compete against one another in a kind of "best of the best" tournament if you will.

    I was the only guy shooting a Bear and managed to out shoot both the guys on my bale who were shooting the Freestyle class with $400 a dozen shafts and Hoyt Alpha Elites haha. Me and my Gold Tip Velocities and the old Anarchy turned some heads hehe.

    Thanks Scout. I figured there would be more hunting bows at a shoot in KS but even a lot of the "Bowhunter" setups were target bows with pins. I'm almost certain that one guy only used 1 pin anyway and moved his micro adjust sight for the 60, 50 and 40 meters. He had 2 pins smashed at the bottom and one in the middle of the housing. I guess if it's legal, it's legal.
