The eye of Hurricane Jose was a couple for hundred miles off the coast at our latitude in near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Even that far away we felt a bit of its fury. All day there was wind. There was also rain, a light rain, accompanying the wind.
All in all, not a great day to be shooting outdoors. Driving into Elizabeth City to practice inside was an option. That course uses an hour of time driving. Really, I didn’t want to spend an hour driving. But, I wanted to practice.
The rain was light enough so that it wasn’t a serious pain. Yes, I practiced outdoors. Well, partly outdoor, I stood in my shed and shot into the rain. I only got wet when pulling arrows.
The wind was more of an issue than the rain. We’d get occasional gusts that required some timing to shoot straight.
Throughout the practice, I played music. What I discovered from this is that I shoot best with Adele singing in the background – who wouldn’t?
