Camp Agape Clay Shoot 2016

I love Camp Agape. It is a Christian bereavement summer camp that I work with all year long in a few roles. I have done videos, website work, and served as a “Buddy” AKA camp mentor over the past few years since I started with them in 2012. This is a bereavement camp for children 7-12 years old who have lost a loved one close to them in their lives. Although the circumstances that bring us all together each year are sometimes tough, we have a lot of fun. It is a life changing experience for both the volunteers and the children.

There are a few fundraisers Camp Agape does every year and this event in late April was the 2nd Annual Clay Shoot. Here are a few photos my father-in-law, Mr. Joe Vogel took of the event. Mr. Joe has two brothers from East Texas that have come to shoot this event both years now, Uncle Edward and Uncle Arthur. Both of them can out-shoot me on any given day but I never claimed I was an expert at shooting sporting clays!

Joshua Creek Ranch hosted this event again this year and they did a great job. The course is world-class. The food is incredibly good and even better than what you might expect at a place like this. All of the participants and volunteers had a blast at this event.

Here is a video I did for Camp Agape last summer. What a great place to learn about the love of God and Christ. Thank you as always for your support and for watching, reading, and listening.

Grim Reaper Broadheads – New for 2016

I have been active in the archery sports, especially bowhunting, for over a decade now and the innovations in this industry keep getting better. I am blown away by Grim Reaper Broadheads. Out of all of the companies I represent as a Pro-Staff or other position, Grim Reaper is one of my personal favorites. They keep pushing the envelope on what is possible in broadhead technology.

Grim Reaper Broadheads have worked for me time after time in hunt after hunt. With no exception, Grim Reapers have worked for me, even with marginal shot placements. As long as a Whitetail Deer or Wild Hog, our main big game quarry here in Texas,  has been hit in the vital area with a Grim Reaper, I have recovered the animal and done so in a short amount of time. This may just be my personal experience but I have the video proof to back it up since I started filming my hunts back in 2012. In 2013, I even filmed two deer I shot with a crossbow dropping 7-10 seconds after they were hit with one of the GR crossbow broadheads I used. You can see all of my bow hunts on my YouTube Channel.

If you are a bowhunter and have never tried a pack of these broadheads, check out Grim Reaper and just buy a pack of their broadheads on your next archery purchase. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed at the results.

Here is a video about some of the innovations that Grim Reaper has come out with for 2016. This is Matt Bateman, National Sales Manager for Grim Reaper, talking about some of the new products this year. I have known Matt for many years now and he is a great guy with a great product line. As always, thank you so much for reading!

Shoot to Kill: Know your Ammo and Broadheads

It amazes me how many hunters fail in the field due to  simple preparation considerations before their outdoor adventure. One of the most important of these considerations is ammunition and broadheads, depending on whether gun hunting or bowhunting. Shoot to kill. Every time. This sounds like the most basic and trivial of advice but its true and I have heard of numerous unsuccessful shots because of basic fundamentals.

When preparing for hunting season or practicing during season between adventures in the field, use the ammo or broadheads you plan to hunt with. There should be no exceptions. If you are running low on supplies, get more. The worst thing you can do is use ammunition in a gun or a broadhead on and arrow in a bow that is different from your “recipe” for success. Most ammunition and many broadheads have a different point-of-impact (POI). Consistency is key here. Any deviation from that is a potential recipe for failure when everything counts the most. Most premium broadheads, such as my favorite, Grim Reaper Broadheads (http://www.grimreaperbroadheads.com/) come with a practice head. Many high quality mechanical and fixed-blade broadheads like Grim Reapers fly like field tips, making practicing with feild tips as most of use normally do very easy, but using the supplied practice head before showtime is still a good consideration to make.

Remember, as with most things in life, consistency is one major key to success. Practice with what you plan to use to kill your quarry. Shoot to kill.

I also cover this subject in a recent video I made this summer in preparation for hunting season.

 

Be safe and have fun out there!
