A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Tennis Ball Guy

 

After work one day a while back, I decided to visit the range for a bit. It was empty. I recorded two rounds. One in which an arrow flies right between a tennis ball and the foam piece holding it, and another in which I have a miss. This is how I would set myself to practice long ago. After going to Bass Pro for a while, I acquired the nickname of "Tennis Ball Guy" amongst the regulars. Today, the idea of shooting a tennis ball using my wooden arrows scares the heck out of me. It takes me about an hour to make a wooden arrow, and if I hit the tennis ball at a certain angle, it will break.
