Beka Garris' gar guards are bad to the bow.
If you've ever shot a bow, you're probably familiar with the pain that often follows that pesky string making contact with tender skin. To alleviate this issue, you can wear an archery arm guard to protect flesh when shooting.
Although the market is ripe with plenty of prefabricated models, we're pretty sure these homemade gar guards are the coolest we've crossed paths with yet.
She has a passion for targeting longnose gar with the bow, so it just made sense for her to take on a little side project, the results of which are astonishingly cool.

Talk about a sweet DIY project with some amazing results. We'd wear these in a heartbeat!
