Okay Friends on this episode of Gritty Bowmen I sit down with Aron Snyder and we talk about sleeping bags and pads. We get into some stuff about water bottles vs. nalgene bottlesand so on. It’s a pretty good podcast, but we screwed up on the audio and when I say we I mean I screwed up on the audio. So it’s not as crisp as it usually is. So forgive me on that. But, it’s a good podcast so I hope you get some good info out of it. I did. -Stay Gritty

Rank #9: EPISODE 153: Iron Mind Hunting with Joel Turner
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen we learn how to become a better shooter from Joel Turner, owner of Iron Mind Hunting. Joel’s instruction is much different from any other shooting instruction I have ever received. This is a quote from Joel that touches on his philosophy. “People get stuck in the rut of thinking tactics and gadgets will solve their problems. What I am here to show you is it’s not the tools you have but the system you must have in place to be effective.” At first glance, it is easy to dismiss Joel’s ideas and training as “snake oil” or as the same thing you’ve heard from countless other efficient shooters. But, although seeming subtle, I found Joel’s ideas and teaching methods profoundly different from anything I have heard before. I cannot recommend Joel Turner’s shooter-training enough. Whether you are a seasoned shooter or new to the game, Joel is an effective teacher with an Iron Mind. You don’t want to miss this podcast. At the end of this podcast Joel shares some deep thoughts on how to call-in big bulls using what he calls the “Bull Calling Cows” bugle. It’s a fascinating concept and Joel has the track record to back-up his theory. It’s interesting stuff. Something I’ll probably be trying out on my next elk hunting adventure. You can find everything you want to know about Joel Turner at www.ironmindhunting.com - Check him out. You won’t regret it. Iron Mind Hunting

Recoil bracing - input into the shot - it happens when we anticipate the explosion Seek controlled shot under pressure - be able to stop shot at any time “Do not shoot an arrow unless it’s perfectly controlled.”
Speech and movement are linked - fix speech pattern to fix movement No slow movement - wasting muscle energy and increase fatigue
Draw Sequence Draw - get it done, stick it on there Aim - put your pin on it - watch it to keep it - compare to driving, keep it between the lines - keep pulling - compare to football player “keep running!” keep means to continue - put concentration in to movement that makes bow go off - slow steady pressure DO NOT speed up words - to speed up shot, increase aggression instead of speed
“Good concentration equals good shooting.” Closed loop - controlled, can stop shot at any time - DESIRED Open loop - movements lead to actions, can’t stop shot sequence - open loop shooters will “only get as good as your recoil bracing allows you to.” **Need to be able to switch from open loop to closed loop when necessary
Snap Shot - efficient, not necessarily accurate - good hunters, calm killers but not consistent 3D shooters Shooting is all about concentration and control. Do not go on auto-pilot. Shooting is simple, but it’s not easy.

Rank #11: Episode 122: Compound Bow Tuning with Cory Miller of xXx Archery
On this episode of Gritty Bowmen, we hang out with our friend Cory Miller, owner of xXx Archery, at his bowshop in Rainier Oregon. We talk to Cory about compound-bow tuning. This podcast has some visual footage that you will want to watch if this stuff is new to you. At the very end of this podcast we inserted some video footage of Cory teaching my cousin Ben how to properly grip and hold a compound bow when shooting. In Cory’s experience as a tournament bow shooter for PSE and an archery shop owner--improper grip is one of the most common mistakes that he sees in archery shooters. Checkout the video at the end of this podcast for a brief lesson from Cory on how the grip should be done. If you live in the area, check-out xXx Archery--it’s worth the drive. And now, Cory has a super-cool Techno Shoot that’s a blast to play with. Go to our website or to our Youtube channel to see a video of Cousin Ben and the Gritty Scotsman go head-to-head in a Techno Shoot-out. It’s good, gritty fun.
