    My question(and hopefully it's not too dumb) for all you more experienced folks here is, what do you feel is the approximate minimum group size(and at what distance) that a person should be able to attain before being able to get meaningful results from arrow tuning? I've seen it said, and it...

    This might be of interest. It's not a complete list, but I think it's a decent overview of the kinds of distances we used to shoot at, compared to nowadays. Every example has its own unique context, of course. The focus on accuracy at extreme long distance is something that we've really lost...

    I have the 3D nationals in December and I've been struggling with the distance judging.I would like to know how do you judge distance and if you know about any system?. I've seen people using the binocular. Thanks

    I am working on a presentation and I am building a table of the min/max distances for various shoot formats. What are the minimum distances to ASA, IBO, and NFAA 3D shoots. The rules talk about maximum distances for various classes, but not the minimum. Anyone have any idea?

    What are your guys max distances for hunting? The arrow at 30 yards seems pretty slow.

    It's coming down to the wire for my upcoming NFAA field tournaments in the longbow division and I am just not getting enough distance. I am thinking of trying split finger again this weekend and seeing if I can find a way to shoot the short shots. Three under is giving me about a 35 yard point...

    I know some here probably think shooting from the youth stakes on par with selling your soul to the Devil, but does anybody do it at their State level shoots? If that's what the competition around here is doing I'm not going to feel bad doing it too. No one has an advantage and of course you...

    Sight point issues for short distances This is not a question regarding stringwalking. I have encountered many indoor barebow shooters that tell me they are either point on or on the paper at 18 meters. I shot my best indoor score a couple of years ago when I was point on, but form improvements...

    Hey guys, Been working on my gap shooting method and struggling quite a bit. I've been shootin 20 yards and have been aming a good foot and a half below the target to get near center. My point on is out to almost 50 yards. Is this odd? I anchor at pointer finger in the corner of my mouth...

    What are good distances to use for recurve and longbow shooters for 3D? I'm a total noob to 3D, but active in our local club. Until recently I was the only regular recurve archer in the club (that I know of... I suspect there are a few stickbows in people's closets) but a few turn out for the...

    Hello there, I've been shooting 3D with friends who like to shoot farther that I do with a stickbow. I'm shooting a TradTech Titan, 42# at my draw length, 62", with Carbon Excel ST arrows which will give me about 9gpp. I was wondering , aside from shooting regularly at longer distances, if there...

    Hello all As the outside season has commenced here in the UK I’m in the process of working on my aiming methods for 30 - 100 yards. I’m currently gapping up to 40yds (I focus on gold, whilst being aware of the arrow, but I don’t measure the gaps etc. and point on around 47 yards) and using...

    I love shooting but there is nothing more discouraging than going from shooting excellent groups at 20 yards then moving back 10 more yards and not being able to hit the side of a barn. Anybody have any thoughts on this subject? Any of you have this problem as well?

    I've recently become responsible for our club's, Rakowana Archers, Field range. When I first joined the club, I couldn't even find the 1st target. The course was so overgrown that it couldn't be shot. Several targets has to be rebuilt and bees had taken residence in 3 of them. I have the...

    Gents - I don't do a lot of 3D, for obvious reasons, but I keep hearing about unmarked distances on 3D courses. Our local ranges have their 3D targets and stakes set up pretty much year round. How many times do you have to shoot a course until you "figure out" the distances? It might not be in...
