Default Traditional FSC Week 41

This week let's shoot at roughly heart-size targets from trad hunting range.

Target: (as shown below) fold a piece of 8.5x11 copy paper twice to create four quadrants. With paper vertical, number these quadrants 1, 2, 3, 4, starting at top left and going around clockwise. Make a dot in the middle of each number, which should be in the center of its quadrant.

Shooting: on the first shots of a day, from 12 yards (6 for kids), using any stance, shoot one arrow at the dot on each number. Start at the top left square "1", then go around clockwise. Goal is to "hit" each quadrant as close to the dot on each number as possible. Touching a fold-line counts as a hit. Can be counted for either quadrant it touches. Person with the most "hits" in the intended quadrants wins next week's challenge call. Winner is for a single day's effort, with up to 4 days' tries allowed.

Measure the one arrow closest to it's intended number, nearest part of shaft to center of dot. This is the tie-breaker.

Have fun and good luck!

Day 1: 1 hit.

A bit left on the other three. (The shot in the 1-square was meant for the 2-square, so no hit )

Also, no measure, since 3-hit score already posted and no need for tie-breaker with fewer hits.

Rule clarification: since touching a crease counts, so should touching the side of paper. (Which my shot at 4 was, but not taking it, since it wasn't spelled out yet.)

Real nice, Briar!
Glad to see Reb back in the fray.
I had a truck power window semi-emergency to deal with; fixed it, though, now!
Will shoot again tomorrow.

Thanks, Briar. Was going good on first two, then pulled the third shot left. Got the last back on track.

Briar: your call, with the Day 4 three hits including a closest of 1-1/8". Not too worried that a shot was out of order but you still got the three intended. Congrats. Nice shooting!
