Happy New Year! Letís try for a long shot to start off the new year. 3 shots @ 25 yards. Pin a spray paint can top to your target. Closest to center wins. Take the first shot sitting down or kneeling. Second shot standing. 3rd shot elevated( with ladder, stool, or whatever means)

Sun came out today, warmed almost to 60!
First shot taken on one knee low; second, standing, little high at 1 o'clock; third, on second step of kitchen step stool, little high at noon. Second shot barely closest at 2-5/16"

I'm gonna play this year.
It was a little breezy so that may be why my last arrow kicked to the right making it look better than it was.
First shot sitting, low center.
Second shot, low left.
Third shot, low left but closest to the target. Only 5". I suck.

Thanks tiger. I'm trying to tune my arrows and in the process my shooting has gotten better. Now if I can just dial it in. It's those first shoots that are always off.

I tell you what, Geezy, your group gives me an idea for a shot I may call on another forum --Rick Barbee's Traditional Archery Friends. You should join, btw, if not already on. Think I'm gonna call a closest-group challenge (on a paper plate).

Just seeing this, Piney. Work happens. I guess I'm runner-up, so will start a Week 2 thread shortly.
