Kinda stupid query but I'm bored!
I am an archer as well as a paddler and like to combine the sports (saves time) so when I failed in my attempts to make a dry-bag for my take-down bow, I bought a 42" hickory 'longbow' and made a waterproof case from PVC.
As my arrows are carbon-fiber with plastic vanes, they can sit in a bag on my deck.
The idea being I can strap that bow-tube and arrow-bag to my deck, paddle to some isolated spot and stump shoot to my heart's content when I'm out camping.
Anyone else do this?
Or take blunts and varmet-hunt for a little meat on the water?

I'm a traditional archer which means that I loose a LOT of arrows.
Just a thought.............|

...and bob like a cork, so no worries about retrieving arrows. I've often paddled with a selfbow and quiver of arrows under the deck lines for stumpshooting, carp fishing, goose hunting, and even roll practice.
Surprised you use vanes|

on trad bow. Are you shooting off the shelf?
Don't have a shelf.|

I have a take down and regular recurve but they are difficult to pack dry.

Yes, vanes definitely don't care about getting wet. I shoot off the shelf on my bows, so I haven't shot vanes in a long, long time. That 42" bow sounds interesting.

They were selling a 42" "Survival" bow for something like $40 so I got it, thinking that it would fit my deck and backpack easier than a recurve and be lighter than a take-down. Plus a longbow, even a shortie, is fun to shoot.

This thread caught my eye... and then I realized I know this Tim Burris guy, although he probably doesn't know me. I'll throw out a few hints - I am a life member of the Pa Longbow assoc., been a very long time since I've been to any shoots though. Used to set up a Tipi at Marsh Hill, that was when Chris Hurt was only a couple of years old. Love to read about how he has progressed into an exhibition shooter. It was great fun for sure.

It has been a long time. I never put two and two together either. You should come to one of the shoots sometime. Cowabunga. Chris is an amazing shot and has grown into a fine young man. How about your son?
LOL Tim is so modest|

I will embarrass him. He is the 2013 National FreeStyle Champion..

Thanks for sharing that info Kim. That's impressive.

If anyone out there comes across some turkey or goose feathers (or any feather suitable for fletching), please think about collecting them for me.
shoot from a kayak|

I'll be camping in an isolated bay so it is possible that I may do some stump-shooting from the kayak as well as the beach.
