Default Traditional FSC Week 26

For this week let's shoot 3 arrows. Take a regular size paper plate and draw a quarter size dot in the center. I know in the off season lots of folks like to shoot groups. Shoot 3 arrows at the dot, seated at 17 yards. Then measure from outside edge to outside edge of your 2 arrows that are farthest apart to get your group size. Tightest group wins. I'll shoot mine in just a second and post a pic.

Ok this is how mine ended up. None in the bullseye but a pretty good group.

Well I just found out I need to practice more shooting while seated. I'll not post the results, suffice to say if I'd been hunting I'd have come home empty handed.

Well if I had looked a little better I would have seen them lol

Ok I messed up on the first attempt as I didn't read properly, I shot standing....
So here's sitting from 17 yards shooting at a paper plate.

Left handed. Id like to zero in a bit more but my right elbow archers elbowitis says no more for tonight.

Seems the more I practice right...the better I am left.

Briar Friar rocks! Got around to shooting mine. Pulled out my old small target, and remembered why I quit using it except for broadheads -- it barely slows down my heavy arrows (618 gr). Anyway, happy for a 3" spread with as little as I've been shooting lately.

Do less printing stuff off. I can't ever get in on those. Work has a secure server and we have a new printer that remains in the box in the attic
