Default First Shot Challenge Week 42

Quarter size dot on the center of blank paper from 17 yards standing. Nothing fancy, but if you post your shot by no later than midnight Monday you can have 1 redo on another day for being an earlynbird.

Guess I'll start. Probably won't use the early bird re-do. 1/4"

There goes Ellis setting the bar real high for this week.

I wouldn't go for the redo either if it were me.

You do that with the Jay Weathers bow?

Thanks. Yessir, Rick, that is the Weathers bow. Brain's getting fairly well tuned to shooting the heavy arrows (680 grains) flat and quick with the 70-lb'er. Can practice more now, since I just got a Dura-glove. Would try one of your Death Adder tabs, but I don't feel comfortable with a tab.

In a pinch, a cowhide work glove over a deerskin 3-finger glove works pretty well but is hot.

The Dura glove is nice.

Thanks, y'all. But don't let me walk; you guys can beat that, or least get lucky like I did.

I shot a day or two ago and was off paper. I found out within the past two days my nose anchor was playing hokey pokey with my string due to some nose thwacking.

I shot it the other day. It wasn't pretty.

Alrighty, then. Guess it's me. I'll post a Week 43 challenge shortly.
