- 8x11 sheet of paper can be mounted horizontally or vertically
- 1" boxes at all 4 corners...take a sharpie and draw an X from corner to corner inside the boxes...center of X is aiming point
- 4 shots...1 shot at 4 distances during same session
- First shot at 19 yds
- Second shot at 13 yds

Measure edge of shaft to center of boxes. Lowest total wins.

Might want to say if boxes should be shot in a certain order; or, if slop/luck is fine for each arrow to be measured to it's closest box.

Absolutely uncanny! (...and mildly annoying I ommited that part.) I thought I had scripted that exact verbage in my phone notes write up before posting. Funny. And so it is to be.

Start top left and proceed clockwise.

Thank you Ellis.

Looks like my total is 6 7/16. Don't tell my old math teachers I used some of the stuff they taught me.
