So many SEASONS of sports in full swing!

Football getting cranked up, so we'll shoot four arrows from 10 yards (sort of like 4 downs to get 10 yards).

Golf is in its championships -- the BMW this week -- hence: Shot 1 taken at the center of a BMW logo.

Dove season in mid-flight, so aim at the flying dove's eye for Shot 2.

Baseball nearing playoff time, so Shot 3 is at the dot at the back point of Home plate.

Shot 4 is aimed at the spot between the goalpost uprights.

Measure nearest part of shaft to center of dot for each respective shot and add 'em up. Lowest distance total wins next week's call. Good luck and have fun!

Print out the page of pics I drew or draw your own.

Went ahead and shot mine in the mud before dark. Not terrible except for that "wild pitch" third shot that got a pass-through on a right-handed batter.

Total: 8-9/16"
Shot 1: 1"
Shot 2: 1-13/16"
Shot 3: 3-3/4"
Shot 4: 2"

Note: Don't feel obligated to include this many pictures (unless you want to). I just wanted to provide clarity.

Seems like my eye just couldn't get away from that BMW circle-x logo for three shots.

I've been watching you trad guys for awhile now. I have always found it intriguing but have never had the time to devote to learning your craft.
Well my son has expressed and interest in bow shooting so I bought him a couple scouts that he has been playing with and he has gotten pretty good with them. I decided he shouldn't have all the fun so I bought an entry level Fleetwood 60" 40# Saturday with some arrows and a glove and got to flinging stick this weekend with him.

I did forget to purchase an arm guard. They said I didn't need it. Apparently I do. or at least improve my form. It reminds of getting licks as a kid when you messed up. Except that belt on your butt , has been replaced by a string on the arm!!! It's an instant reprimand.



Anyways I thought it would be fun to see my targets. I'm just glad I hit the paper 3 out of 4 tries.

Shot 1



Shot 2



Shot 3



Shot 4



Evidently I didn't measure as I didnt see it as necessary.
I hope y'all don't mind me barging in. I think I might have the Trad bug! This is a pretty challenging and I could see also a rewarding endeavor.

Willkomen Cattlelack.

Hasty armguard: An old tube sock with the toe cut out works in a pinch...if still too much slap...slide a piece of cardboard inside along the forearm.

When shot #2 was a better shot on target one than shot #1 , I decided to just shoot them all at #1.

No need to measure. LOL.

Have seen these for the last year I've shot a recurve but have never played! Picked up a Bob Lee off here last month with some crappie winnings and have loved it so far! Got a new finger tab in today and shot about 8-10 times with it before I drew up my target and shot. It started raining right when I finished so I didn't measure anything but I'm guessing around 8". Better than I thought I would do!!

Good shooting, Slew! Might want to measure that up; Cody's leading at 7-7/8", and I don't think you're far off that.

Rick: That's some lights-out shooting!

Isn't it crazy how that BMW logo grabs the eye?

Well I measured soggy paper after the rain passed center of dot to center of hole. Had to guess on the dove a little. It just tore the edge of the paper. 1 3/8 on BMW logo. 1 6/8 on the dove. 2 4/8 on the baseball diamond and 1 4/8 on the goal post. Shot Broadheads some after the rain passed. Man I'm excited to get to the lease this year. Even though it's likely gonna be late October or mid November before I get to go. Too busy crappie fishing till then! I bet I haven't shot a dozen arrows from my Bowtech since I picked up the Bob Lee!!

Thanks, but my little shadow had to show me up. I was happy with my first two warmup shots today.
His first shot dropped in pretty close. Little stinker.

I like the way this bow shoots. However every now and then I throw one. Shots one through three i could live with.

Much better. Good shooting with the short while youve had her DRT.

What is your current arrow setup with Sak?
