Been to Burge, and now at Big Red Oak Plantation.....

I finished 2 days of instruction at Burge Plantation, and now I'm at Big Red Oak. I've got a full day of lessons for tomorrow, and it looks like the rains will start Tuesday. Then, I'll head on out to Texas!

Yesterday, my first 'lesson' was a special longtime friend and student Larry Farrow came out to shoot for the first time in over a year. Larry had shoulder surgery, and has been out of the game for quite awhile. The doc have finally cleared him to start shooting again, and we went out for an hour to test the waters. While his endurance was short, he certainly had not lost his touch, and he was blasting targets with abandon.

You could have driven a pickup truck through his smile when he broke his first target. Only afterward did he realize that there was no pain(!). He will need plenty of practice to build his shooting arms' strength back up, but one thing Larry has never been scared of was burning shotgun shells, and lots of dedicated, hard practice!

Glad to have you back in the game Larry,

  1. That is great to hear. I'm sure you'll have Larry ready for the majors in the summer.
