Were gonna stretch our range. 29 yards. Paper plate with center dot the size of a quarter. Measure edge of shaft to center of plate dot.

One shot per day. Maximum 5 shot days...no minimum. If time only allows you one day to shoot...so be it. Submit best shot. Lowest measure wins.

Good luck Shooters.

Like a simple, quarter-size spot!

Way to hit paper, Briar! Not bad from 29!

Went out and visited Byron today. Took my shot there cause I can only reach 20 in town.
Full disclosure, I did shoot early in the morning, but shot this in the afternoon, probably 7-8 hours between,



Call it 4 7/8"

Thanks TT.

That was a great first shot at 29...Malachai.

Good luck on finding that arrow Cattlelack. If you were in the Austin area Id hook you up with a boat dock styrofoam block for a stop...Lake Travis likes to regurgitate those things on the shoreline.

Y'all just about have it bracketed between you.

If anyone wants to try a swinging bottle challenge, try this week's shot on Rick's TAF site.

Good and bad news...

Bad: I missed the plate

Good: I hit my target today and didn't lose and arrow again. 9" from bullseye so ya'll are still safe.

Won't let me load pic now.

Our paper plates are in the dishwasher so I had to compromise.

WOW,Gary! That's 2-1/4" from 29 yards! Dang, dude!



You obviously need a more challenging shot. Go shoot the swinging bottle on TAF!

3 3/4"! It was about too dark to see when I got home to shoot! Drew it up and let it fly and saw the plate move! Had to walk up there to see where I hit. I'm sure I won't do any better than that this week.

Slew and cattlelackranch what I like about your shots is the good centering windage wise. Up and down, especially on a longer shot is tougher to judge. But having the form to hold tight to center left/right says good things.

Day 3 shot: 3 1/4”

I tailored/modified/installed the quick detach quiver last night and was curious to know how’d the bow would handle it at longer distances. Just fine. String tracker install tonight.

Y’all have a great day!

Day 1 shot for me, at least hit the plate: 3-13/16" right, but good distance, anyway.

Day 2!

Got home with plenty of light to shoot so I grabbed one arrow and walked to my 29yd line from last night! Arrow looked good and the plate moved but I couldn't see it till I got closer! Almost a walk off home run!! 5/8"

Man I love this Bob Lee!!

Well I knew better than to try it again today but what the heck! I was all over the place today. My first shot was 8" high and and inch to the left! Took the plate off and shot a while after that and was so so. Playing the walk back game I was 33-37 yards each time with a dozen arrows but I sure didn't stack anything up today! Cold beer and try again tomorrow!!

Bummer. Was sprinkling when I got home and once I shot my first shot I didn't want to stop so I shot 3 shots at 29 and then 3 shots at the coyote and 3 at the pig at 14yds. Fiest shot was nearly same hole as my first shot of the week. Then pulled em all and played the walk back game with 11 arrows and made it to about 45/46yds I guess. Corner of my shop is 40yds and I was 6 good steps past it with my last arrow. It missed though. ab3c3d6ebc151c9300c4fbf636737e05.jpg[/IMG]

Bottom left was my first shot at 29. Second was to the right. Third wasn't as close as the other days shot but still close!

I'm at the lease working. All my shots here on out will be focused on killing something. Great shooting slew.

Tally-ho. I had considered making this weeks shot a one and done broadhead shot from a closer distance with a square of TP.

Slew...awesome shot...awesome shooting....please choose us an awesome target for week 39. Well done Sir.

Well since deer season starts this weekend how about first shot of the day with a broadhead at a quarter or so sized dot at 17yds sitting or standing whatever you prefer for your typical hunting shot. I would get it started off but it's still raining here! Closest to the center of the dot wins. One shot a day for 3 days?

Swinging target sounds cool too but I will let somebody else figure that out!
