Default Traditional FSC Week 25

3 shots on three separate days. Any shooting position. Shot angle and distance on target moves each day.
Draw a 6” equilateral triangle on sheet of paper/ paper plate / any media. Triangle points are target points. One shot per point...change points each day.
One shot per day at any point on you choose and not already targeted.
You can go in any order for shot distance.
17 yds straight shot to target
15 yds quarter target away right
13 yds quarter target away left
Measure edge of shaft to targeted triangle point.
Lowest total measure wins.

Good luck.

13 yds...left quarter...5

My friend Trumpkin is correct. I have a distal tear in my right bicep...half the tendon tore away from my forearm...half is still attached. Reattachment surgery is this coming or next Wednesday. This is likely the last I will be shooting for 3-4 months.

Oddly, I can shoot right handed just fine. Shooting left handed...the right hand bow shock hurts.

Dad gum, Briar. Sorry about your injury. Good shot for having half your arm falling off.

That's a long recovery process and I'd advise you do the therapy and listen to them. Pushing it doesn't make you tougher, but it can make it harder.

Dang Byron, sorry to hear about your arm. The sooner you get it fixed, the better though!!!! Hope it heals up good as new after the surgery.

Thanks guys. Ive been through orthopedic surgery before but its been a decade or so. Im a big fan of resting and taking it easy upfront to allow for healing but hittin the ground in stride when its time to recoop.

Shooting with a mouth release has been suggested to me but I believe Ill wait for finger flinging.

Thanks guys.

The angle of the arrow on today's (#2) shot made it hard to keep the tape measure from sliding up the shaft, but I'm gonna call it good for 1"

Nice quartering shot, Rick! Can just imagine it slipping right into the vitals of any critter!

So if I stay above 8" I'm safe.

Almost got that in one shot. But I think I figured out why I'm not grouping well. Now if I can correct it . . .

Well done Rick. Well done Ellis.

Go for gold DRT! I think identifying a form problem is more than half the battle.
