Default Traditional FSC Week 6

Okay this is a Buff inspired challenge that will require a shot per day. Each day the distance will increase 5 yards.

First take a standard sheet of paper or a piece of cardboard and draw a 6" circle on it. Inside that circle make a second 4" circle. Inside that a 2" circle then black out the inside of the two inch circle.

If your arrow is in the 2" blacked out circle it's worth 5 points. Inside the 4" circle it's worth 3 points. Outer circle is worth 1 point. If the arrow breaks the edge of a circle score the higher score. Just rubs the line score the lower.

Sunday's shot is 5 yards.
Monday's shot is 10 yards.
Tuesday's shot is 15 yards.
Wednesday's shot is 20 yards.
Thursday's shot is 25 yards.
Friday's shot is 30 yards.
Saturday's shot is 35 yards.

If you miss a day then you cannot make that day up. Move on to the shot of the day.
For example you don't get to shoot Sunday so Monday you shoot at 10 yards the so on through the week.

Kids start at 3 yards on Sunday and move up in increments of three yards each day.

On Saturday the high score for the week gets to choose who makes the call for next week. His/her self or the lowest total scoring shooter.

Good luck and get out there and shoot every day.

I'm trying to get into traditional shooting. I just got a recurve that hasn't been set up just yet, but I'm thinking about giving this a try.

DRT: Since this is a Buff inspired challenge on maxing out effective range, do we have to place target butt in front of our truck????

No time for that, gotta start the challenge today, no time to drive into town. Normally I'd just do it on the computer at work.
Got one drawn up and I'll shoot this afternoon. Looks like it'll be a good challenge.

Do it, it's a good way to motivate you to practice and it'll show you areas you may need to improve. It's also fun.
(Just don't ever win or they make you pick the next challenge.)

Man this is a,great challenge. I'll be standing in the front yard by the sidewalk on Saturday though. 😁

Here's my 5 yard attempt. Funny I usually step them off as I know my pace count. I actually went back and measured it with a tape since it seemed really close. Close or not only 3 points for me.

I'm pretty sure I will have an arrow in the dirt or in the horse stall mat before the week is out so I'll pass on the truck. However if Buff is volunteering his . . .

Even though I had high hopes of getting a bull on the first shot, I barely cracked the line for one point. Ugh. Forgot to take my camera to the south 40, so took it inside.

Rick I've shot 5 shot groups with all holes touching off of a bench with quality optics, well developed loads and a well built rifle. My buddy could make a ragged one hole group with the same set up.

Quality set ups and attention to detail is great. But you have to have ability to use it well. You sir have that ability.

There is. After I took my shot I figured I'd get a few in at 15 yards. Second five shot group at was scary good. Probably won't be on paper tomorrow.

I certainly can't compete with you guys. I don't get home most days with enough light to shoot, plus I'm setting up a new to me bow. But I did manage two arrows. 5 and 10 yards.

Not bad for not knowing what I'm doing and not having the proper arrows. But hopefully I'll get all that straightened out.

Thanks for these "challenges"
They will make me try harder.

This isn't about competing with us. It's you and the challenge. There are a lot of better shooters each week than me yet every now and then one gets a lucky arrow in. Join in and have fun.

Don't know if this was directed at me,
But I'm not competing with anyone. I'm just glad I hit the target. I have a long way to go and am just fired up about shooting trad gear now.
I appreciate the insight.
