    Reading back over my last few posts this morning before work (as I often do) the part of the last entry that struck me was "Learning to shoot compound properley" That set me thinking what did I mean by that ? well Ive had all day to think about it this the concusion I reached Im not saying it's right it's just my opinion.

    A lot of people switch to compound because they see it as an easy way to up their scores/classification they make the switch the scores jump up by a 100 ...

    Well it's taken me a few days to get round to writing this entry sunday morning saw me and the compound kid up early and off to lincoln to shot a york for me and a first ever bristol 2 for daniel.
