Dewayne has complete confidence right now and that is a powerful thing. It's more powerful than most folks realize. A very large portion of shooter are pretty sure they are going to hit close and hope they will hit a 10. Dewayne has been in a spot over the past couple of years where there is no doubt in his mind that he will hit a 10 and expects a good number of 11s. That confidence improves your form tremendously because he shoots every shot strong - with confidence. When you aren't sure you are more timid. You dwell in the land of "don't screw it up" versus "I'm going to hammer that 11!"

Thanks Jimmy and Jason so many people confuse confidence with cocky and I never want to come across as being cocky.

I enjoy competing with everyone from the young and old to the good and the not so good...like Cal and Dimmer...LOL!!!

Dewayne shooting at 30 yards and under is no different than a RU shooter. His point is on the 10 at almost every target on the range. He may shoot at the top of the 10 or the center or bottom but he's on it. His style of shooting is about as good as it gets for gapping.

And Dewayne put a beating on the RU guys from the same stake.....ouch!!!
Yeah we need to get that top score back in RU where it belongs.

But Dewayne's performance shows more than anything it's not the bow or the aiming style it's the shooter.

RU is Recurve unaided -
12" stab
