One odd shot

For the past two days I practiced on a 3D range. On Sunday, I shot with my Mathews ZXT. On Monday I used my Mathews Apex 7. For the two days, there was a 4-point difference for the 30 targets. Four points can mean a lot in most competition. The Apex 7 won me the 4 extra points. The reasons I practiced with the ZXT are: 1) it was cold Monday and the metal grip of the of the Apex 7 isn’t as nice as the wooden grip ZXT when it is cold, and 2) I hunt with the ZXT.

There’re a couple of pigs on the course. The distance is about 30 yards for the one in these photographs.  I hit it pretty good on Monday, the arrow touching the line of the center circle. When I pulled the arrow, I lost the field tip and the insert for the tip. Both remained lodged in the middle of the foam hog.  I’d carried three arrows in my quiver so I had two more with which to continue practicing.

You can see the silver insert, from the arrow a day before, on the tip of the arrow going through this pig.

On Monday I was shooting on the same range. Once again, I hit the pig in a good spot. When I walked up to retrieve the arrow I was surprised to find Monday’s arrow had found the insert and field tip from Sunday. That was one odd shot.
