    That's the thought that went through my head today as I managed to fit in mid-morning, mid-afternoon and early evening sessions. It was a good day because all last week and beyond I had been shooting the 45# Hawk to the point I managed to hyper-extended my index string finger and had to take a...

    I was out back on the 20 yard brick shooting my BB. Debbie came out to water. She commented that I been shooting pretty regularly and asked if I had a match coming up. I told her no, I was practicing because I was going to shoot a video to send some coaches. She stopped in her tracks...

Now that daylight savings started I have time to get them out after work and they ask to shoot almost every night.

    I have shot with or have cyber friends that are very good shoots. That is to say I know how well very good shots score and I ain't one of them. I did hit a high point today practicing though (high point for me). At 22 yds (fartherest I can shoot in my backyard), I kept 102 arrows (17 x 6...

    My apologies for a bit of venting here. In the area where I live there are three prominent archery clubs with nice 3d/field ranges, and the relations between the clubs have been pretty good. On a gentleman's agreement you can go and shoot at the other club's range, provided you call the...

    The post about the stance article G. Fred Asbell wrote in Traditional Bowhunter made me wonder if others practice shooting from unusual positions? I know there are a lot of serious shooters here who probably dont have the need for such antics and im not a serious hunter so i really dont have the...

    How many of you do this? I was told to work on drawing, holding, and settling in for a few seconds. When I try this, it's alot more difficult than it sounds. What are ways to train for this? Just draw, hold, and look for a few times before loosing the arrow? The whole relaxing the hand thing...

    Sometimes the explanations for things aren't very clear if we're looking at them from the wrong perspective. After reading a thread on the Leatherwall where a number of people tell us that wood shoots as good or better than carbon, it dawned on me that if someone only uses one wooden arrow and...

    I've been shooting my bare shafts at 30 yds (not yet graduated from the Van's school of 50 yd bare shafting) and its been fun. In the past, I've primarily done it at 20 yds and let it go. It seems like practing with bare shafts on a regular basis tests your form. Do any of you guys do this...

    This might be old news on this forum, but in the past I’ve seen a lot of people that are frustrated because they can’t get good groups at say 20 or 15 yards. I was one of them for a couple of years. I got all sorts of advice, but none really had that much success at the time. I noticed that...
