First Robin Hood Shot!

Recommended Posts

Practicing in my back yard today and hit this at 15 yards. At first, I was bummed when I heard my arrow crack but when I saw the result I was excited. Good excuse to pick up some more arrows!

Congratulations. It's kind of like an archers hole in one. And to think it only cost $10.

I have to confess, though, that if I never get one that I'll somehow survive the emotional pain of not being admitted to such an exclusive group.

Yeah, the first one's pretty cool, congrats! smile However every one from here on out is just an expensive lesson on why to shoot 5 spot targets. mad

x2 They are even more impressive if your intention was to hit that other arrow not just by luck, if that is what you want to call it!

The robin hood is kind of cool, but from the looks of it, you might want to adjust your sights. You are missing consistently (unless you had a black void spot picked out).

I never said that I did this intentionally. It was pure luck. I was aiming for the white spot above the arrows using my 15 yd pin. The target may have been a little further out than that, I don't have a range finder. Just thought it was a cool picture and shot.

Oh, it is cool. I didn't mean to come off as a "_____" or a "_____". Just observing that you are consistently hitting the same spot, but the spot wasn't on a "spot" on the target. Thought you could maybe move your pin because you are clearly shooting tight groups.

I bet in the future to save money you'll start shooting to different parts of the target with that good of grouping!

Great shot, no matter how it happenens!

I got one at a 3D shoot a couple of years back while shooting with some guys I met there and happen to Robin Hood another gentlemens Ted Nugents Zebra Striped arrow, it was so cool for me, he even got a pretty good chuckle, I did thank him for giving me a spot in the kill zone to aim at. laugh

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?

      then use the BB gun after catching them!!!    and then enjoy rabbit dinner for revenge!!!

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.

      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
