Halloween is almost here so we'll do something for the season. Draw a jack o lantern to your liking on a piece of paper. Our target is the nose on the pumpkin so we'll make that a 1/2" triangle. Holiday is on the 31st but since not everyone has 31yards available to shoot we'll reverse it and make it a 13 yard shot. 1 shot per day. Good luck lighting up your pumpkin!

Fun shot, Fish!

Quick question: do you mean for folks to shoot a shot per day with a chance to improve throughout the week?

After y'all shoot Fish's pumpkin shot, you should go over to Rick's forum Traditional Archery Friends and try this week's quartering-away shot I posted. Feel free to shoot it after the TBH shot (same day okay). Not competing, just expanding opportunities.

You're on line, I'm good on elevation. What are the odds of the same 2-3/4" distance? Nice.

FYI y'all: we usually measure nearest edge of shaft to some center point, unless otherwise specified. So, Cattlelack, your last shot is somewhat better than the 3-1/4" stated, for example. May not matter there, but might come into play. Fish is final arbiter on his call, of course.

Sometimes it is center to center. For most shots I can recall going back several months, it's been nearest shaft edge to whatever spot. Convenient to measure to a shaft edge. Can always specify differently, though.

My kids thought I needed a bigger target and wanted to draw some after seeing Fish's.
Especially my son. Hence the larger than normal nose on the left one. He said I'm sure to win now and I needed all the help I could get.





We'll call it 1 1/2" center to center



I'll save the big target for tomorrow
