Breaking in a new Jug

Post by CDFingers »

This quote is from 2013:
I'd been using some clear jugs, but they broke apart after about ten hits, so I put a new one on.

This is the first shot, breaking in a new jug.

Seems I have to go down to the feed store and have a new bag sewn on, as well.
from this thread: http://www.theliberalgunclub.com/phpBB3 ... 30&t=21299

We generated a new bleach jug, and my other I could use only on Sundays because it was so holey...

So I shot the first arrow into it and picc'ed it. Maybe make a few of these for kicks and giggs.

I shot arrows on Saturday, a rifle on Sunday, and arrows on Wednesday. Sweet.

Used up a jug of Unique loading for the Bullseye match.

The plastic on these jugs is quite a bit thicker than the bleach jugs, makes a resounding whack!

Seems the bag is wearing. Might have to turn it around.

Truth be told, I don't remember where we got that orange juice jug. Something about mimosas, but the memory becomes foggy after a few years on that sort of thing. This Unique jug is a lot skinnier than the bleach jug...

Circumstances conspired to keep me away from my recurve for like five or six weeks. Before I finally was able to draw it this morning, I decided to replace the jug. Photob*cket sux, so I replaced two of the pics above, but so far have been unable to replace the first. Perhaps I'll find it.

We can see the hapless feathers getting worn over time. Bags come and go, but these are the original feathers. Maybe time to replace them.

As we can see, I hit a bit high. Subsequent shots were lower. This is the first shot after that long hiatus.

I stuck the jug up under the burlap at the top, and the arrow drove it into the handle. Sort of interesting.

You know, there's a screw top. You don't have to use the arrow to both pierce the jug to get the orange juice out, then cork it with the arrow. The top works much better, mostly!

My friend's wife has huge jugs which she inherited and is rather proud of. Not being shy at all, she shared a pic so we can all ogle:
