compound bow

Frank: Percy, could you please inform Leo Valdez that he is being shunned?

Percy: Leo, Frank says welcome back and he could use a hug.

Frank: Okay, tell him that that’s not true.

Percy: Frank says that he actually doesn’t know one single fact about archery.

Frank: Okay, no, Percy, tell him the very first compound bow was made 500 years ago. [Leo walks away] Percy! Tell him!

Percy: Leo… nah, that’s too far.

Frank: Damn you.

Me with my Hoyt Ignite 😍 (Yes my shoulder is high in this pic for the drawback but I always lower it after, before I line up my shot.) I was shooting at a 3D Elk target 30 yards away and hit the perfect kill shot every time! Love my bow! And love how much I really look like a woodland elf like this 😝 just need the clothing and I’m all set!
