Default Traditional FSC - Week 7

FSC Week 7 Shot Challenge - The Happy Spots

This was inspired by my box o' clothes-covered-in-duct-tape target butt.

You may shoot up to 9 shots per day, but only if you hit your spot on the first shot, and all subsequent shots.

Views: 127
Size:  32.0 KB

Start from 5 yards out. Pick a spot. Shoot. If you hit the smiley face, move back five more yards, and shoot a different dot. If you miss one you are done for the day.

This should get better as you get warmer. Each shot that hits any part of a smiley face is worth 5 points. No points for a miss.

Tally up all shots for the day/week and post them.

Donít worry, be happy! Shoot with confidence.

Todd

If you just printed it, I changed the JPG to have a place to write your score.

Sorry for the late edit.

I don't have a computer or printer. Going on a hunt next week. I'll try to either hand draw or get to a copier place tomorrow.

So, you are using your phone...I get it.

My drawing program said these are 2" smiley faces, but I just measured with my bow square and they are about 1-13/16".

Close enough for gubment work, I guess. Not going to change the image again.

It's 32 degrees in Central Texas and the North wind is howling.

Not sure many will be up for this today, but I will try later this afternoon.

Hopefully, the wind will subside.

Serious left to right cross wind. First shot was right so I had to compensate aim point. And arrow can drift a bit at 22 yards.

Looks fun! Will the winner be the one who gets the most hits/points -- therefore, hitting from the farthest out -- on any single day? Or some average of days' shots? Or total hits /points for the week?

Also, should spots be shot in some intended order or is luck allowed, as long as only one arrow per spot?

Tradtiger,

Total points for the week. No specified order. Pick any spot that you wish to hit. If you miss that spot, you are done for the day. As I found out, it is harder than it looks. If someone hits all 9 spots, it will be quite the accomplishment and I'd definitely enjoy shooting with that person! Not An impossible feat, but most improbable. Especially for me.

So in that scenario when you start the next days shooting do you start at the yardage you missed at?

It's just plain cold. And the wind off the lake is bone chilling. I don't like shooting, or working for that matter, when it's this cold.

But I do have to work.

Yeah, early to bed, early to rise... always been that way.

My shooting has been about as $#1TTy as this weather.

No need to post photos. Shot a zero yesterday and am forfeiting today!

I feel like this weather has brought a malaise upon everyone. The Fredericksburg shoot is on Saturday with a 50% chance o' rain.

Pray for sun, boys and girls.

I'd swear I hit more bulls when I'm just shooting casually, but probably about the same...two out of six arrows on average. Although shooting with my buddy Mike, we each put four arrows a piece into a rabbit and a gopher Target from 18 yards.

I guess that is a little more fun than shooting at a spot on a box.

Unfortunately, shot number 2 is well off.

15 points for the week so far.

About to go shoot Saturday to wrap this thing up.

I guess it is just three of us left on this thing.

All right. Never made it past the first shot in this challenge.

Another five points to tack on today.

Views: 26
Size:  78.0 KB

Total for the week: 15 points. I'm done.

If no one else shoots today, tradtiger already makes the call for next week!

He is at 20 points right now and has one more chance to score again.

It's been real and fun, but not real fun!

No worries, Gary. Not much participation in this one.

So, I took to using quart-sized Mason jar rings to make the circles on my target box.

At 3 1/2" round, my scores have increased a bit for some strange reason.

I should've thought about that before posting this challenge. Some people don't have computers/printers or one's that work.

I'll tally up the scores later today and put this challenge to bed....finally!

Printer is low on color ink, so I just printed in gray scale.

Wanked the 20 yarder bad,
so 15 is where the score stopped for a 15 point total.

I decided to go ahead, and shoot all 9 in the order I originally intended.

After the 30 yard shot, there was just to much fletching clutter from the longer distances to focus, so I pulled the arrows, and shot the 35, 40, and the 45 (standing in the thick brush).

Removing the first arrows didn't help me none, but the wind is pretty stiff out of the south.

That new ILF is sure shooting sweet for you, but it's probably not the bow!

Read your post again. Looks like 15 for Rick.

LOL, I don't think I blew anyone out of the water.
Pretty sure there's some other 15 scores.

One things for sure (not that I'll do it). I don't think I'd have to worry much if I put my target bag in front of my wife's caddy's grill, and shot at it, although penetration might be a problem.
