Ok, here it is:

Take a regular water bottle and cut it in half like this:



Figure out a way to get it in your target like this (I used 2 sticks):



You are shooting for the opening in the end of the water bottle. The shot is sitting in a hunting chair from 13yds (6.5yds for kiddos).

If you do not get in the opening on the first try, keep shooting at it till you do. The winner is the person who gets in the opening in the fewest tries. If you get in the opening on the first try, keep shooting till you get it again. If there is more than one person who gets it on the first arrow, the second one in the fewest attempts will be the winner!

Have fun, and here is mine:

First arrow, edge of shaft to edge of opening - 1.5Ē (That measurement does not mean anything. I just measured it because I wanted to see how far off I was on the first shot.):



I beat the bottle all to heck with the next 28 shots!

Shot 30 finally hit the mark:



Have fun!

Good shooting, y'all!

Got me worried that I was going to need an extra durable means of securing bottle to target, so I taped it to a piece of cardboard. Also, left (bow arm) elbow has a little soreness, so figured I'd break out the little 55# Ben Pearson that I haven't shot in forever, in case I needed 20 or 30 shots -- instead of the 70#-er.

Well, I wounded the bottle with the second arrow and nailed it dead center with the fourth shot!

Thanks, Gary. Pretty pleased to shoot the little bow well after such a long time not picking it up. (I call it little because -- while 55#, it's only 52 inches long.)

I knew you would be glad to be off the "hook" for the next call. LOL.

Very nice Ellis! I knew someone would nail it quickly. I beat the bottle all to heck (all of which would be great kill shots) with only a couple fliers. I just couldnít get one in the opening till #30!

Ellis is the new leader in the clubhouse!!

I had that as well. Which is frustrating shooting so close. But it was fun to keep hearing the bottle crackle then walk up and be disappointed.

Thanks, Jerry!

And that's the fun and worthwhile practice in these challenges. When you're hitting the plastic or very close to a bottle like that, those are all good shots. Just fun to try and get one in the opening, which would be like picking a particular chamber on a critter's heart. That's another reason I like to call realistic hunting distances like this on challenges.

Attaway!

And that's just what I'm talking about. This stuff is kind of fun AND you can get better doing it ... and doing it some more just BECAUSE.
