   Here at home, April 15th marks the start of…Spring turkey season! I’m so excited! This is going to be my first turkey hunt and my first hunt with a bow! In order to prepare myself for this exciting adventure I’ve been doing a little research on what exercises I can do to strengthen my arms, and thus increase my draw weight (the amount of force it takes to draw the string back). After searching and modifying, I’ve finally come up with what I’ve dubbed my “Skinny Moose” workout. (Thanks to dv over at Mostly Archery for the great advice!) And it’s kind of a two for one- not only will this improve my bow skills, but hopefully it will improve my overall awesomeness when it comes to our book club’s LARP party! Book clubbers beware! Here it is if you’re interested or want to keep up with me ;).
