hey Ks_stickbow,

 I'm sure I thought of  several names for him last wednes day, none of them his given name LOL

 I know you have him down as NightHawks son but lets' call him Patrick as that's his name. Hope it clears up any confusion sorry  :)

Well here's my week 1 score  :(  . Things were going alright on the first 4 shots and then the big ZERO. I've tried to add it up differently, but it's 36 everytime.

It doesn't matter how or what you shoot, as long as you hit your target.

Rod I'm not sure I understand. You say there were no 12's but the picture looks like you shot the X right out of the target. Looks like 4 12s and a 10 for 58. Are my old eyes fooling me?

the vegas target is scored 10 and then nine...I think he was saying he was used to adding it up that way.

Ben, the Vegas target I've been shooting a lot lately scores 10,9,8 etc...no 12's and when scoring I forgot we were calling the X a 12. I scored the target 4 tens and a 9 because that shot was outside the center circle, whih is how it would have scored on the Vegas face.

Nah, your eyes aint fooling you...I get confused easily ...lol

Been practicing and realized something in the first couple shots.

I have never shot at paper targets and generally shot one arrow at a time from random spots and angles.

It is different.  I usually hit the black with the first arrow but get worse and worse through the five.

After a couple of days of shooting from the same spot I am now grouping.

Tonight my wife wanted to shoot for the first time since a hand injury.  She was just starting when it happened and that was months ago.  The fam was in the garage shooting and for kicks I took a few shots.  All were in the 10 ring!  The problem:  Her bow is right and I shoot left.

My head is messed up!

My hats off to the target shooters out there put a paper out there and things are different.

This deal is just what I needed to improve my shooting. My target shooting is usually one arrow at each of five 3D targets at ranges from 13 to 31 yards. Although, I have been doing pretty decent at it,this five arrow spot shoot has really helped me focus more on form. Hopefully at the end of five weeks I will see an improvement. I'm definitely inspired by some of the awesome shooting displayed by you all so far!!
