I never used to shoot paper...I always figure what's the point when really the first and only one arrow counted. Then on a trip to texas for some piggies I drew on two piggies and wiffed them both. The reason for the wiff....short draw, no anchor, poor release....blah blah blah....all the stuff that should have ingrained in my head from shooting paper.

Now I shoot paper everday. For me If an arrow doesn't hit were the other 4 are it's cause there was an inconsistancy in my form. When I see tight groups I know I'm not dropping my bow arm, I know my release is perfect, no short draw...etc..when I can get my arrows to group without thinking or concentrating on anything but the point of impact I know I am ready to point my arrow at a 4 legged creature.

Jeff, one thing I've learned from guys who are really good at shooting paper is.......every arrow is the only one that counts and to put everything you have into that one arrow, then  do it again on the next arrow! I treat even a 60 arrow 300 round like 60 indival tournaments.

Even though I'm not passionate about paper targets like I am hunting shots and 3D....it sure is good practice, to be slapped in the face with that cold hard score, about how well I've done on that one arrow that counts.

Rod, I just C&P'd that into my file of quotes. It is something that I figured out for myself when shooting metallic silhouette matches. It is nice to see someone as accomplished as you echo a basic truth that I had arrived at while walking a different, yet identical, trail.

The groups are far more impressve when you see the targets with the arrows in them, bringing the size to scale. I am SO motivated, seeing how well you all are doing.

And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.

I am glad to see that some of this trad community can see the benefits of shooting paper at marked yardage.  Where I shoot,  this is always a heated discussion on how shooting paper at known yardages messes up your hunting ability to shoot at animals.  They can take a lesson from  this group.   My pleasure to be a part of:    mr.chuck

I have also thought that if you want to improve a skill, whether golfing, oaring a raft through whitewater,etc, you should do it with people better than you.  Kind of pulls you up with them. Listening to comments like Rod's and Killie really help when you are out in your yard preparing to shoot.  Thanks to all of you guys. I look forward to seeing how we all continue in this.

He had a 33 with one flier.  Not bad for a 7 year old!  He was shooting a Mad dog long bow 30# @ 22 with wood arrows.
