I shoot a lot at my house and like to mix things up a bit and shoot many different distances and angles

One of my favorite things to do to practice for Archery Drives is to shoot at moving targets

I swing my Rhinehart cube and shoot at it from different distances

Today was at about 30 yards or so

If you watch you will see I come to full anchor and hold. When I lock in on a circle I release

I like the smaller ones the best

I am trying to simulate a walking deer target

Over the years I have found I get shots at more relaxed deer if I don't try and stop them

I have always stopped the animal before shooting. Never practiced moving targets. Looks like fun. You make it look easy

JP, I'd like to see you attach a camera to an arrow and get some footage of it flying into the target.
That would improve FOC alright.

Thanks for the video, that looks like a lot of fun. I agree 100% I do not like to make any noise to stop deer either.

Thanks guys

I love my little fun range

Lucky I do not have any neighbors

When people pull up they always ask about my little target setups :)

Nice shooting, You may call me an "ole stick in the mud , but I could really do without the background music...

I love the ball

It becomes a very interesting target when hung

I usually do not swing it like in the video

Usually I will just get an arrow in it and that starts it spinning

Great to time your shots on a slow moving target

I went roving tonight

For me that is either stumping or I carry a small volley ball size Rhinehart ball and throw it where it rolls I shoot it

Kinda a mini ever changing 3 D course

On the way out of the woods I stalk the Hanging Rhinehart

This was my view at 43 yds you can see the arrow as it rotated



This was my shot a bit right



Than I went up and shot it at the 30ish mark as it rotated



A lot of fun :)

Great shooting, JP. Nice little front yard range you have there, too. Looks like you have a pretty fair amount of slope to work with. It's just begging for a moving 3d deer on some kind of trolley setup.
