Dang ..... again
« on: September 03, 2017, 04:24:58 am »
Second perfect robin hood this year. From 15 yds. Aim point was about inch to left and inch higher.



Reinforcing thread below self nock did its job. Shaft split just a bit. Will be able to reuse the shaft, albeit with bit harder-pulling bow.

A good reason to not shoot groups. I pick a different spot on the butt for each arrow. Good shooting I guess but bad for your equipment.

Yep.
Once shot all the arrows in quiver at same spot. Instances such as this (though rarely so perfect) began to happen as shooting improved.
Switched to shooting just 2-3 at same spot.
Now gonna go to "1 on 1".    ::)

Keep that up and people may get the wrong idea and think you can shoot ;)

Well!!! ,  at least the shaft is reuseable, >:D (SH). Did that at an indoor range and they charged me an extra fee to fix the nock!   Not a self arrow or bow, so I won't brag too much, one of them funny new fangled things, and a wheelie, but at least it had feathers!
Darn good shooting!  That's an occupational hazard, just like doubling a shot with a rifle, but a lot more obvious!

Must be shooting one of my bows. Get used to it :)
