Been shootin now for 11 years, and despite practice,i entered a tournament today at my 3d club, and sure enough,halfway through i started making mistakes, getting target panic,missing shots i normally ace,Does anyone have any tips that could help out when the pressure is on?

Shoot for fun, Put the score out of your mind. My oldest girl can shoot with any pros out there. She is not that good but it does not rattle her who she shoots with. Do not bet yourself up. Just shoot for fun. It is not like if you miss it will kill someone. I shoot for fun indoors and do not care what anyone thinks of my shooting.

What i have found really helps me, is someone else keeping score.....
If I cant see my score card, I cant worry about the shots I allready shot......I cut things up and split them down!

Shoot ONE arrow at a time. Once you touch the trigger on the release you CANNOT catch that arrow. If you make a bad shot, concentrate on the next shot and make it good. GOOD LUCK

Shoot for the fun of it, not the competition. I like to take each shot like I would at a live animal. If you act like it's a real animal, you'll give it the respect it deserves and you'll do just fine.That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!
Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

Just remember that pressure is self imposed. Don't think about the competition and go have fun. If you make a bad shot forget it and move on. Don't let it effect your future shots. When you have a run of great shots don't start thinking about the "what-ifs". Just let the shooting flow roll and have a good time.Crackerized '09 Rytera Alien-X, Easton ACC 3-49's, Sword Twilight Hunter, NAP Hellrazer 100gr
