Default Traditional FSC Week 11

I'll go ahead & call this so folks can get started on it early tomorrow if they want to.

Seems like everyone likes the one shot a day for 5 days, so here's another one.

Day One / Shot One - from 10 yards. 5 yards for the Kiddos.
You are shooting at the #1 in this image.

Day two / Shot Two - from 10 yards. 5 yards for the Kiddos.
You are shooting at the #2 in this image.

Day Three / Shot Three - from 12 yards. 7 yards for the Kiddos
You are shooting at the #3 in this image.

Day Four / Shot Four - from 12 yards. 7 yards for the Kiddos
You are shooting at the #4 in this image.

Day Five / Shot Five - from 15 yards. 10 yards for the Kiddos
You are shooting at the #5 in this image.

Each day/shot, measure from the edge of the arrow shaft to the nearest edge of the number for that day.

Total the measurements for your 5 shots. Lowest total wins the call for next week.

This image is printable to scale, but If you want to try to draw it, the hexagons are 1-3/8" at their widest 6 points.

If you tackle drawing it, just get it close. It don't have to be perfect.

I hope the numbers are more visible I. A full sheet of paper than they are on my phone! There will be some memory work to do just to remember which spot to aim at!

They are easily seen when printed to scale, and held at book reading distance.

They most likely won't be visible for anyone at 10 yards & out. They'll just look like all the other dots , so yep you'll need to study it to know which hexagon to shoot at, and then still be able to pick that hexagon out, and focus on it will all the other ones around it.

I love shooting visual teasers.

Thanks, but my eyes/focus was flying all over the place.
That honeycomb is tough to look at.

It'll only get worse as we move back.

I won't get to complete this but I figure I'll get the first couple in.

Looks like 2 1/8" high. The close shots are hard for me to keep down.

LOL Ellis. You must have had some influence on me.
Hit the same hexagon you did, only a little higher, and a little lefter.

High, and a tad left for 1-1/8"

2 day total - 2"

Not sure what happened here, but I "think" I forgot to crawl down from my 20 yard fixed crawl mark.

Day 4 / Shot 4 = 3-1/4"

4 shot total = 6-3/4"

Could not see the number.
Could not stay focused on the #5 Hexagon.
Kept losing my spot when trying to count down & in.

Finally gave up, and just put the point of the arrow as close
to the center of the blob of paper as I could, and let it rip.

Kind of why I put the #5 shot in the center in the first place.

Day 5 / Shot 5 = 1-1/2"

5 day total = 8-1/4"

Nice total, Rick!

I was trying to shoot a little low and left of the Day 2 arrow hole, which was a lot more visible than the "5"; overdid it though.

Thanks.

I drove myself nutz for a couple of minutes trying to get a good focus on that #5 hexagon. Couldn't do it, so just dumped the arrow for the middle.

Yes Bisch. I know. I was already nutz.

Well if it's a multi shot best do it quick because I haven't shot in a week and I'm itching to go get my feet muddy.
