This is why.
hu·bris
ˈ(h)yo͞obrəs/
noun
noun: hubris

excessive pride or self-confidence.
synonyms: arrogance, conceit, haughtiness, hauteur, pride, self-importance, egotism, pomposity, superciliousness, superiority; More
informalbig-headedness, cockiness
"the hubris among economists was shaken"
antonyms: humility
(in Greek tragedy) excessive pride toward or defiance of the gods, leading to nemesis.

I have a bad quality about me when it comes to competition. It's not about the others in the competition, it's about the over demanding, unfairly critical and always unsatisfied ego I carry around. It took me years to overcome in at work and it has shown it's ugly head in other parts of my life as well.
Pride goeth before the fall so to speak. It seemed when I did well in a couple of these I couldn't shoot worth a hoot for the next two or three weeks. It drove me nuts.

Recently I have been shooting a few just never posting results just to push myself some. I'm fairly comfortable in my form and even ready to do some things with bare shaft tuning and getting out to some shoots when business slows so maybe I can handle my self persecuting evil alter ego well enough to try a few at some point.

The last couple weeks I haven't shot much with work and scout camp. Yesterday I cut my ring finger at the bend on an emergency call out where a dock broke loose. Not a bad cut but definitely a bad spot.

I appreciate the invite though. Helluva bunch of good people in this section.

Don't know if the slope of my driveway was an advantage or not but I finally placed a good shot

Great shot, DWA! And, if you measured from nearest side/edge of arrow to the spot, I'm thinkin you're more like 1/4-5/16"! Awesome! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

I've never seen his work up close but I would be careful about signing any liability wavers if it's held together with duc tape or super glue.

Shot two more after that, figured since I had one close, I would just "aim at it". Didn't work out so well! Still 3 dead animals I reckon. Disclaimer... I actually shot this last night, but computer wouldn't let me load the pics for some reason. Worked today! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

This is the first time I have touched my bow since 6/13 right after I broke my string hand index finger.

The finger is still sore, but functional.

This speaks well of knowing & using a string crawl.
Using my 10 yard crawl - measurement is 5/8" low, and a little left.
I'll take that any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

Thanks.

The bow is a right hander.
Yep, shooting vanes off the shelf.

The quiver is a Thunderhorn BOA, that I recovered to hood on.
It has limb bolt mounts, but I have them flipped around to the belly side, and bolted on there.

Rick

EDIT:
P.S.
To be more specific. The quiver is actually a Tred Barta 8 arrow quiver,
but it is made by Thunderhorn, and is exactly like the BOA, but has the extra arrow clips on the outsides for two more arrows.
I only carry 7 arrows in it. 5 in the hood with broadheads, and the two outside clips have my bunny thumpers in them.

P.S. - P.S.
I notice that the lower mount looks kind of out of place.
I need to glue some of the fake alligator skin on it to make it look right.

DWA took it good...with a 1/4" measurement upon closer observation.

I had to do a double take...because...

I aint never seen a star with a hang down...but measuring shaft edge to dangle (or split tail)...clear winner.
