I Will Always Shoot Mathews

Just bought the new Mathews Creed the other day. I now know what all the hype was about. I’m in love with this bow. Even though I haven’t sent an arrow through the rib cage of a mature whitetail, I know that when I do my Creed won’t let me down. Fast, smooth, and accurate!!… Continue Reading →

While shooting my MR6 at 30 yds getting ready for the Rinehart R100 in Sparta, WI I was shock to see I had shot my first Robin Hood. One arrow later I realized that I had shot the unthinkable, yes a Double Robin Hood.

Dream Season

Only a Mathews for Daddy’s Girl!

Late summer 2012 I was target shooting my Switchback XT one day when my daughter, who is 11 years old, came outside and informed me her school 4-H program offered archery.
