Default Traditional FSC Week 4

Shooting the V.

Draw an flagged equilateral triangle with sides being about 4. It can be flagged left or right. Aim point is the laterally flagged point...if flag tip is pointing left...shoot at that left point .... or vice versa for a right triangle.

One shot per day at 14 yards from standing or sitting or kneeling. 5 shots for the week...first shot each day. Only shots touching the triangle or inside triangle are worthy of measure...anything else is no good...DQd for the day.

Best measure from the 5 day shots wins.

Good luck Peoples.

First shot Sunday: an inch or so forward of V from 21, but it worked for first archery deer kill.

Day 4: DQ. I shot in the rain yesterday and pushed the shot. Red arrow marks the impact in the blue tape. I was pretty disgusted.

Day 5: 3/4

Yall have a great day.

Great shot, Briar!

I finally got a shot: about 1-3/8".

Nice shooting, Gentlemen. That 3/4" is going to be tough to beat.

More people should participate in this. It could help hunting shots. It has definitely helped me. Specifically, some of those ladder shots helped me succeed on a 21-yd shot on a doe from an elevated blind. If you're lurking and not shooting; go ahead and shoot. No shame in posting less than great shots. The point is to try and get better. The slight pressure of peer judgment is minor because we all suck sometimes.

Part of the participation issue is the evolving of it into a multi day, multi shot event.
Plus many of these shooters would shoot the pants off the rest us and finding new challenges all the time kind of stinks.

Just because more than one day's shot is allowed doesn't mean you have to keep shooting. Just saying it could be helpful and doesn't have to get to be a chore.

All prior shots Ive taken were left handed.

Right handed:
Day One (yesterday): DQ (pictured)
Day Two (today): DQd further

Since I win by 20% non-sucktion awesomeness....YeeHaw!

Im on the fence for next week. Same target yet decrease yardage and decrease target size (squirrel)...or...Same target yet increase yardage and increase target size (elk). No other options. Tomorrow will tell. God bless and good night Yall!
