accuracy

  1. TradTalk Main Forum
    I was thinking about this today when I was flinging arrows. I'm shooting pretty good, not my best but not my worst either. I'm not hitting 10s with every shot but I'm in the money with 90% at different yardages and even unknown yardages. It occurred to me that this is pretty good shooting...

    We know that ultimately accuracy is up to the shooter. But if there were a product that could give you the potential to shoot even more accurately at longer distances, would you be willing to spend an additional $3 per arrow, no matter what arrow you use, for that potential? Keep in mind that...

    Hey Guys, Just a quick one I am finding the longer I hold at draw the more my accuracy drops. When I am shooting my best I draw, settle into anchor aim/hold 3-5 secs and then shoot,shooting like this I can group under 4inches at 15 yards. As I am still learning and trying to improve as we all...

    I bought a Sage Sammick with 35# limbs. I have been shooting 400 spine arrows and it's obvious that the bow is not tuned correctly and that these aren't the right arrows for it. They don't hit straight into the target. I only bought the Sammick to work on form with a lighter weight bow. I'll...

    Hey everyone! As hunting seasons come to an end and the temperature starts to get bitter I feel safe in wishing you all a Happy Indoor Season! As most of you would agree, in my opinion, indoor rounds are arguably the best way for an individual to measure his / her progression in accuracy...

    Today I was tuning a bow that has been waiting on the shelf for weeks, its an older Hoyt and I fletched some Platinums for it because I felt aluminums would be a good match for an almost vintage kind of bow. During a break I took the arrows and let them fly with my current stringwalking rig...

    Ive had an itch to try bannanna cut feathers, any thoughts on affects on accuracy? Is there a reason bannanna isn't more popular?

    Like many of you I play around with the 3Rivers spine calculator. I was hoping to hear from some of you as to the accuracy of it for your set up. When you plug in the specs for your bow, and current arrow choice, does is closely match? Recently I started to get hen feather wear and a trough has...

    Just for sake of discussion......Given the choice of two bows, how many folks on here would choose a bow that they had a blast shooting, just enjoying how it shoots, VS. a less enjoyable bow, that shot to a bit better degree of accuracy, at the chosen Target game they were involved in??...Not to...

    I wounder if you guys every do different kinds of games to work on your accuracy. Every Sunday, I go shoot with my buddies and we always come up with different games to work on our accuracy. The things we did are put coffee cups on the target and we shoot in the cup at different distances. Then...

    I have a hoyt sky hunter supreme that is all original but i have been thinking about converting it to ILF and putting a better set of limbs on it.I shoot this bow hands down more accurately than any other i own. My question is does anyone think that the limbs are the reason i shoot this bow so...

    Was wondering how much a twisted lower limb might throw an arrow off at 25 yrds? I know this is relative to how much twist is involved, just wondering what your subjective opinions might be. Got a Groves Spitfire takedown of my dad's who always strung it by stepping through and twisted the...

    Hey everyone I have a browning nomad stalker recurve (awesome little bow) but I'm having some problems with accuracy and I'm not sure why, I'm 6'8" and at 31" draw I pull it back quite a bit, but I'm using a consistent anchor point and form. And it to be clear I don't mean accuracy as in...

    First, my apologies if this has been discussed, if it has please post which threads discuss this. I am a rank newbie at Archery. I have a basic 50# sage which I love shooting and can generally hit what I aim at within 4-5 inches at 15 yards. I have a long history of target shooting pistols...

    I live in a state that does not allow you to use your dog to help you find a wounded big game animal. I'm just wondering if there are any of you who are doing this in states where it is allowed, or other countries for that matter, maybe even in a professional capacity. Really interested in all...

    I need help / advice / guidance from archers more experienced and skillful than I (the guys & girls that inhabit this great site in other words). This is my conundrum; I'm lefthanded, I shoot lefthanded but I'm right-eye dominant ... I've seen many a thread about this issue but I need to clarify...

    This is my first time posting here, and to be honest, I'm sort of a "noob" to archery. My specs: 60" PSE Blackhawk longbow arrows: Easton Genesis 30" NASP Arrows also some (ordered) handmade 31" cedar arrows - 125 grain field points String: Flemish twist (http://www.flemishbowstrings.com/)...

    Started shooting today first time after 25 years or so and man I am shocked. At 20 yards in my basement "training field" across the open doors ;) I have managed to place each shot close to target (circle size of a quarter), almost as accurate as my air shotgun at the same range. Moreover I din't...

    Is there any advantage accuracy wise for not-elite shooter between the Target point and the more common screw-in points? Thanks Martin
