Back in June, we were camping in a place were we could get out our bows and practice some primitive archery. We have always joked about teaching Torrey to find the arrows, and renting her out at rendezvous. So in one evening, we taught her to find the arrows in the tall grass. She caught on extremely fast, and had a blast doing it.
Since then, we haven’t been anywhere we could shoot our bows. Until now. We arrived at the site of the Ft. Bridger rendezvous a few days early. It’s nice to get here before the masses of people arrive. I wanted to see if Torrey still remembered what she had learned 2 months ago, would she remember to find the arrows.
And I am pleased to say, the answer is yes. As soon as I got my bow out she knew what we were going to play. I on purpose shoot the arrows all over, then tell her to “find them”.
(I accidently shot these two close together)
Off she goes, and one after another she finds the arrows. If she can, she gets the fletching ever so slightly in her mouth, and then finds the next one. If they are buried deep in the tall grass, she makes sure I know were it is.
Lost of people shoot archery at this event, and lots of people lose arrows in this tall grass. Do you think I should rent her out?
