It was a warm and beautiful sunday as I headed out to Milford, NJ to Farmers Sportsmans Club for another 3D archery shoot. This is an extremely enjoyable club especially during hot muggy summer days due to their awesome air-conditioned clubhouse. Open to guest during shoots, the clubhouse is not only used for registration, but also has a kitchen with appetizing food and… wait for it… A BAR! A cold beer is quite refreshing after you spend a day slinging arrows at targets.
Farmers has a well maintained practice range and a challenging 30 target course using Delta McKenzie targets. It begins on a hill with moderate terrain and then continues on thru their skeet ranges and eventually smooths out at the finnish. The course also includes 1 tree stand shot, plenty of parking and picturesque grounds.
During this shoot I got a chance to meet a truly fun shooting partner Peggy from Westfield. She shoots a recurve bow and is a frequent archer at the Oak Ridge Park Archery Range in Clark, NJ. She loves not only the challenge of shooting with her traditional equipment but also the enjoyment of being outdoors. We swapped a couple of thanksgiving recipes and had a ton of fun.
Their next shoot is August 5th 2012 and it’s their Whitetail Jamboree where I believe they have an all deer 3D shoot. I hope you get a chance to make it out.

With a newley purchased Hoyt Rampage XT from my favorite archery shop Sportsmen Center in Bordentown, NJ (thanks Vinny for setting me up) I was told the Bigfoot open was coming up next week. I had a rough 20 yard set and had to sight in a 60 yard mark so I properly set up my HHA Sports Optimizer Light Ultra Ultra DS-5500 sight and got on my way. I had a ton of fun and ran into a couple friends. I didn’t even keep score but didn’t loose any arrows so that’s not too bad for my 1st time back. Enjoy some footage from this fun and memorable shoot.
