I haven't seen that pic for a while. I gave this young lady shooting form advise many years ago over on AT. That had to be 10-12 years ago.

Lou, she shots well with those double Stablizers.

In my line of work I meet a lot of old folks. The oldest one was 104, but she looked seventy. She lives in CO. I always ask them what there secret is, and they always tell me healthy lifestyle and they were hard workers.

You did a good job, x-man!

The one thing that will help you live to be a very old age, is good genetics. The next is not being fat. The next is not smoking. The next is not over-drinking (which is different for men and women). At least that's what the studies were saying when I was in school 11+ years ago.

I figure I'm doing good with 3 out of 4.

Ike, I was thinking 3 out of 4 is 75%. I haven't had those odds with anything else in my life!

And... just like that the thread is derailed.... wow.....

Justin, while I see your frustration, a derailed thread is a bumped OP. In Hollywood they say, "no publicity is bad publicity."

WOW! I'm amazed they even included the archery stuff in a mainstream media article! And the picture of her holding the rabbits! Of course the editor probably thought they were stuffed animals that she used as targets! ;-)

Ike one thing that more recent literature has borne out is that your number two and number three predictors of poor health outcome have a synergistic effect when combined. Obese individuals who smoke face far more than double the risk of either risk factor alone.
