Title: Online tourney - WEEK 2
Post by: ks_stickbow on January 06, 2008, 01:20:00 PM
alright week 1 is gona and past. We had a great turnout of 60 people. Hope we don't drop a single person, even though I know we wiil. Here is week 2 nothing really has changed since week 1.

Guys, if you didn't sign up don't just post your target. There was a sign up that ran Nov. through middle of Dec. and another 2 weeks after that was a list of people to make sure I didn't miss anyone. When you just post your target for the hell of it you make it really hard to find and score the peoples targets who signed up. Not to mention me having to locate your name on the list..only to find out it's not there. If you want in wait till the next one. Sorry I have to be this way, but dang it that's the way it is  


• Alright this is week 2 of a 5 week series. The rules below are the final rules, and if you need any clarification please PM me. If your question is something I left out of the rules I will modify them. I will post any modifications in bold.

• You may shoot your first target using 5 arrows. Post your target with your screen name (the one you signed up with) and your score WRITTEN ON THE TARGEt. All targets are to be posted by 12:00 Noon Sunday, Jan 13, 2008.

1. Any bow longbow or recurve – No Sights what so ever.
2. No arrow restrictions….carbon, wood, aluminum, cane….etc…are OK
3. A cut line gets rounded up
4. An “X” is a 12 everything else is as marked
5. Targets must be turned in by Sunday 12:00 PM (Noon)
6. You cannot shoot all 5 targets in one week and turn them in one at a time or all at one time
7. You may practice/warm up before shooting your target
8. If more then 5 arrow holes appear in your target your weeks target will be a zero, or you will be asked to reshoot that week.
9. Targets will be shot at a distance of 15 yards or 45 feet
10. Everyone will shoot this Target no exceptions
     http://www.uspalma.com/Targets/PDFs/200%20reduced%20for%20100.pdf      
11. WRITE YOUR SCREEN NAME AND SCORE SOMEWHERE ON THE TARGET. Other information such as bow and arrow combo is OK as long name and score are there as well….Make them readable.
12. No whining, bitching, moaning, groaning, or complaining.
13. You may use a visual aid on your target. Such as an orange dot covering the X. As long as it does not obscure the line for scoring.

• We will be using this target so that everyone can print it. It will print on regular paper(8.5X11).
     http://www.uspalma.com/Targets/PDFs/200%20reduced%20for%20100.pdf      

• Best you can get is a 60 (5 arrow * 12 points = 60)

• All times I refer too are in CST/CDST

My biggest problem shooting is concentration or focus. Now there are plenty of other problems, but this little shoot has me really trying to focus on each shot.

Thanks Jeff for setting this up. I'm really enjoying it.

Hey, did anyone tell X2 this wasn't a benchrest competition with his 30-06?  This here's trad bows!  I'm not going to win anything, but El Cheapo the homemade longbow put all in the kill zone again (and that's saying a lot on our little deer!).  Some dang fine shooting guys...hope I don't see you in the next 3D tourney.  And just to be a PITA, ks_stickbow, "tourny" is spelled "tourney"!!  :knothead:

Jeff, I think you should make a new rule, that Rod and X2 HAVE to shoot all five arrows without pulling them. That way while the rest of us are working on our form and focus....they could be doing something...like repairing arrows  :thumbsup:

Great Shooting X2 and Rod. Form tips would be neat.I usually warm a round or two on a used target. Then I put a new target and go for it. My first two weeks scores have been above what I usually get when practicing. I hope its because I focus more under pressure, but it could be just luck!!

Great shooting Rod.  I hope to hit a 60 before this is all over.  As for tips, I know this has been said a million times, but you just have to do everything the same every time.  I always have a shoot routine that I use for each arrow.  
1.Establish stance (shoulder toward the target, feet shoulder with apart, back foot slightly back).
2.Nock arrow, grasp string in the first groove.
3.Focus on target
4.Inhale slowly and exhale slowly
5.Inhale while drawing to anchor, with natural pause on inhale, use a three point anchor middle finger corner of the mouth, cock feather on the tip of the nose, and thumb tucked behind the jawbone.
6.Pause at anchor, increase back tension while focusing on the target, and let the release happen.
7.Hold focus and bow arm on the target until the arrow hits.
8.Exhale, relax, and prepare for the next shot.

Always make every shot count (shoot it like it was the only shot)
When practicing I don't shoot a lot of groups I only shoot one arrow at a time and go get it.  
Once you have established your form, you can concentrate on repeating it each and every time.  It is all about consistency.  

Enjoy the shot

That's a good reminder X2. I get a good shot in there and then I tend to hurry up a bit for the next one. Must think it will be just as good and can't wait to see it! Usually I am disappointed with the results. Thanks for this reminder.  David

When I do exactly what X2 says (right down to "Enjoy the shot"), the arrow goes where I want.  When I don't, the result is a 33.  'Nuff said, IMO.  Thanks!

Jeff, here are targets for TVMan, CanukinMI, and me for this this week.  Don't know why anyone'd want to know, based on my score, but I shot a 1971 Shakespeare Super Necedah, 45# with 2018's and 125 tips.  Don't know what the others shot, maybe they'll chime in.  BTW CanukinMI did not sign up (only joined the 'Gang in about a week ago.

Same score as last week. Thought I was on to something as this time my first shot was the 12. Came back to earth on the other four.
Score 47 same bow- my 49# homemade one and cedar arrows.

Week#2 target,Score 45. I used a Paul Schafer Silvertip one piece, 57@28.

 (http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c20/992life/IMG_1005.jpg)

Lesson learned for week 2.  Aim small miss small.
I shot this after I shot for score.  The Circle is only 2.5 inches, and the total spread of the arrows was only 4 inches.

well I got a 46.....my string on my regular bow wore out so I had to use a different bow. I've got my new string now so I'll be shooting with my regular bow again.

(the circled holes are from the nails)

Blackcreek 3 piece longbow, Easton Excel 500, score 53.  Sorry about the rip, I made up the bad target this week and it's giving me problems pulling arrows.  I'll hopefully have it broke in by next week.  http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s89/bgram62/HPIM0449.jpg[/IMG][/IMG]
