Okay, so closest single arrow to center dot, with any first shot this week?

Quartering away and within 4" circle.

BTW, thanks, Reb, for getting the challenge up early so everyone can get going on it tomorrow.

Yes Sir.

This was the only shot I could come up with in a timely manner. Going to have to plan ahead. Hopefully there are more participants after the Holidays and hunting season.

That's a pretty steep angle for a shot. I wouldn't take shot on an animal like that.

Good shot, Gary!

Thing about any angle is that it turns a circle of four inches into a much narrower ellipse, which shrinks the left/right target zone significantly. I'm thinking 45 degrees would probably be about the limit of acceptable angle to allow a little margin for error. On a hog, however, the angle is beneficial for hitting toward the back of the gristle shield, where it may be a little thinner. (as on my bigger hog, which was probably about a 45-degree shot.)

Yes but this steep of an angle and you can get a ride along the ribs, under the shoulder blade and out the front of the chest with no vitals hit really easily.
My target doesn't care. Except it was tougher to pull the arrow. Tore the arrow hole a bit on the target.

Agreed - especially about glancing along ribs. So don't take quite that steep of an angle -- your's and Reb's look closer to almost 60 degrees. I shot mine at 45 just now, and it seems do-able. Will post in a minute.

I shot the way his pic looked. Honestly I thought the horse stall mat may have gotten tested.
Makes you aim small though.

Nice shooting Gents. When I set up the shot this morning and stepped back, I thought the angle was a little severe as well. 45 deg looks to be about right.

I just guessed at a 45 degree angle.
Think it turned out to be more like 65 degrees.
Looked pretty steep when I got back there to shoot it.

I found the "S" cut, and burn on the paper to be pretty interesting.

Rushing around and then shooting a bow is not the best combination. But, I got to save time measuring this.

I doubt anyone is going to try this in the dark, so I'll go ahead & get something started for the upcoming week, so folks can start shooting tomorrow.
