Was just uploading some pics from ANZAC day at my family property in Mudgee and found some nice ones. Not really bushcraft related but im sure you can appreciate how nice it is to get out of the city for anyone who lives there or has lived in the country. :eek:

I practiced with my bow, my younger sister rode, we played with the dogs, cooked, had some drinks, slashed the paddocks, filled the tanks, swam in the pool, got the tractor bogged in the creek. Great time had by all. Family and the country, you cant beat it.

Your family property looks amazing! A great escape from the city indeed.

What type of bow is that?

I had one when I was growing up on our family farm, nothing flash, it was a fibreglass bow, 50 pound, if I recall correctly. Lots of fun, but I remember retrieving arrows from long grass could be a pain.

Yep good call mate, the long grass is a real drama to find arrows in, ecspecialy mine because they are wood coloured, so i try to have a stop, in this case a small hill of dirt. I just use an old punkwood stump for a target, which works fine for me.

The bow is a 50lbs Samick Verna. Nice bow. Simple and acurate.

Not bad ok for target practice but for shooting 80 to 100 lbs would be better.
