My son is shooting archery for his school team. His form was not good. He kept pulling back way too far. We talked a lot about being coachable and what that meant at his last tournament. His coach at school had been trying to help but honestly Aydan is so shy when the coach would try to help Aydan would just freeze up. I knew we needed help from a pro. I also needed to get my new z2 set up. We spent the afternoon with George and he got my bow shooting bullet holes. He checked my sons bow and added a tied on nock and a set of finger savers. Once the bows were set up it was range time. He worked with Aydan until he was consistently getting his form correct. I got to have a great conversation while this happened with my son about what being coachable meant and it finally clicked with him. He was shooting much better by the time we left. The new shop was great! The customer service was excellent.

Outstanding. Glad you and your son got squared away. thumbup

I've been saying it for years that George Harris is the best tech/coach around. George is one of only 2 people I'll let work on my bows (Shaw being the other). If a person isn't shooting as good as they would like, whether it's the bow or the shooter, they owe it to their selves to talk with George as he can get to the root of the issue better than anyone I've never seen.

And if "The Rob" is there when you stop by, you'll get to see electrifying display of smacktalk that only The Rob and George can display. rofl

Only person I've ever taken any bow to. George is a good fella.


Yeah, well, I always heard there were three kinds of suns in Kansas: sunshine, sunflowers, and sons-of-bitches.

About a mile north of the old one. Same side of the road, between the skate center and autozone.

My son shot another tournament tonight at 6. He beat his previous high score by over 50 points. He is on cloud 9.

That's awesome. Congrats to your son! Sounds like his confidence level is soaring.


When I leave CAC I usually shoot better. I wanna chain smoke and drink JetFuel coffee, too. laugh

Seriously, I've known George ever since he and Bernie ran that cramped-ass North Alabama Outdoors store in the shopping area where Rosie's is (on the Parkway). Always helpful, always honest. Always wants to sell me a new Mathews, too. I may take him up on it one day.

That's what I'm talkin' about. WOOOOooooo!!!!! Stand back and let the Big Dog step to the line and show you how to pinwheel that target. cool Two thumps up from The Rob. thumbup thumbup

Now Archery skills is like buying a car. The stuff George showed him is the down payment, consistently practicing those skills is the monthly payments and steps to owning the skills.

Everything I write a check, I'll ask George "Do I make this out to Custom Archery Outdoors?". He'll give me the bird and I'll say "But ain't you Bernie", to which he gives me a double bird.

I've given George so much crap over the years it ain't funny. One time at the old store by the river (North Alabama Outdoors) George was starting the press a High Country bow that had a cracked limb. I was about to come in the side door and George had his back to me. The roof of the store was tin, so I grabbed a hand full of rocks and tossed them up on the roof. Those rocks made the loudest noise you'd ever heard. I've never seen George jump that high before or after that. It took me 15 or 20 minutes to quit rolling on the ground laughing and it took long for some of the other folks in the store to stop laughing.

If you really want to see George get embarrassed, ask him about how he settled the sting and cables on a high let off Pearson bow. rofl rofl rofl

He gave my son pointers for shooting and a hard time I think that means he liked him. We are at the lake now for spring break and Aydan had to bring his bow with him to practice. His little brothers are shooting with him now.

I had to go by the store yesterday to pick up some tax stuff and told George how well Aydan did. George just smiled and humbly said "Well, I just try to help folks". He also said Aydan has a lot of natural shooting talent and with a little work he could be a really good shooter.

Keep me posted on Aydan's progress.

Thanks for the encouragement. He is loving to shoot. We will keep you posted. Maybe we can shoot sometime at a 3D.
