2) My Most Vivid Memory of Archery as a Youth
The memory that remains the most vivid in my mind was a fall day in the timber on the farm where we lived. I was hunting for rabbits or squirrels. I finally spotted a rabbit and he didn't seem to know I was there. I tried to carefully approach for a better shot, when suddenly the silence was shattered by a couple of crows with their raucous "CAW", "CAW, "CAW". The sudden warning cries spooked the rabbit. I was very upset, so I figured a large black bird was just as good of a target, so I continued moving slowly to a spot just below the limb where these pesky crows were perched. I slowly took aim as I drew my bow. At the moment of release, I could just tell that I had made a perfect shot. The arrow sped upward directly at the exposed throat of my intended victim. Just as the arrow got about a foot from the crow, he non-challantly jerked his head to the left and the arrow sped right on past. The crows then flew away, but the worst part was after this humiliation, I lost that arrow. Boy was I mad at that crow. However I learned to never underestimate one's opponent.
