Default Traditional FSC Week 1/2019 (NEW Years Week)

Print, or draw to scale the image on an 8.5 X 11 inch standard paper.
The dots are 1/16" diameter.



Take your shots from 15 yards (7.5 for the kiddos).

Only one shot per day, and must be first shot of day.
It's 5 shots total, but you have 7 days to get them done.

You are shooting at:

1st shot - The dot in the "right" letter "p" in Happy
2nd shot - The dot in the number "9" of 2019
3rd shot - The dot in the number "0" of 2019
4th shot - The dot in the "left" letter "p" in Happy
5th shot - The dot in the number "2" of 2019

Measure from edge of shaft to edge of dot for each day.

Lowest total for the 5 shots wins the call for next week.

Shoot Straight! Have Fun!

Happy New Year !!!!

Rick

First shot in about a week might as well hit number 1: that's 4-11/16" down and in to a righty batter.

One of the hardest things to do is let down, take a breath or two and reset. When hunting you often have to buy on a target it seems tougher. Most often though it makes for a better result.

Funny that you mention this, Gary. I actually force myself to let down at least twice on these FSC shots just to make sure I don't rush and to try and feel my anchor points prior to the actual shot.

Still several hours left to shoot.

Y'all do me a favor, and tally/post your own total measurements.
My old eyes aren't what they used to be, and my math sucks.

Looks like the ferocious tradtiger wins the call for next week.

Calls us a good one Ellis.
