A couple of fun exercises during archery practice

Morning practice is typically at some paper target. Early in the day the wind off the Little River isn’t as forceful as it is in the afternoon. During the afternoon I’ll move onto the 3D range where the woods offer some protection from the wind.

Shooting 3-spots and 5-spots can become monotonous. I shoot a variety of targets; most of them are designed for a rifle or pistol. My thought is that will keep me fresh and help prevent me from falling into the routine trap.


Today, I set up two exercises, one to shoot the center out of the target and the other, without out altering my sight (set at 20 yards) walk away from the target and see where the arrows landed.


I was a fun practice session. The lack of wind was a bonus.
