Target Panic
« on: December 14, 2015, 10:58:00 AM »
Hey Guys!
As traditional archers we all go through stages of really good shooting, and stages where we develop some type of target panic. (well at least that's the case with me and a lot of guys I shoot with) and I was just curious about some of the target panic experiences y'all guys may have faced over the years. How do you think it developed and how did you overcome it?


May your arrow fly true!

Overcome target panic?  Buy a new bow, of course!!!

Bill's suggestion SHOULD work     :D

If not, I think the main culprit of TP is the lack of a good, repeatable shot sequence. Confidence in making the shot is key!

There are several good videos out now that tackle TP, with differing solutions.

The Masters of the Barebow videos are great, as well as Joel Turner's video.
