    Default Field Archery, making some progress.

    Well, I shot my weekly field league the other day. Shot a 272 out of 280. I feel I am making some progress.

    One thing I have noticed is that as the round progresses and if I am shooting well, I begin to put more and more pressure on myself to shoot each target better than the last. I think this is a mistake.

    I think shooting the best shot you can is important but the build up of pressure is changing my shot sequence. Let me explain in more detail. Let's say I am half way through the course and I have only dropped a couple of points. I know this and the first thing that pops into my head is "I have a good round going, shoot the last shots real well".

    What this was doing was causing me to aim harder. I would hold longer trying to get the aiming dot even more steady than usual. This is when the trouble would start. Every shot should be identical. Shooting different on the practice range than you do on the course is BAD!

    Once I started to relax and just shoot one arrow at a time, things started to come together. Darn near robinhooded a navigator 430 with pin nocks. Totally destroyed the pin. Do you know how small navigators are? They make an axis shaft look big.

    I have a confession though, I have also changed my stabilizer weight and have been working on release tension too. This could be helping also.

    Anyway, this is just some of my own random thoughts. Maybe it will help someone else, maybe not.

    Default Very good scores

    If you havent read Lannybasshams book With Winning in Mind, it can help. Great mental stuff.


    I agree field is alot like indoor. You must shoot it one shot at a time and block out the final score.

    Default Picture

    Dreaded 80 yarder. With well tuned bow and field set up. This is a fun game.
    I shot my 3d rig with no lens. All yardages are marked distance. There one round of paper anaimal targets, due to rain I couldnt get any pictures of them. Ill try to locate some old ones. Chris is shooting some good scores.

    Default Arrows get stacked tight

    And yes they get hit. Smaller diamentor arrows work better and catch less wind. I believe this is a 40 yarder.

    Default Just signed a new club up with local Oklahoma NFAA

    There going to build a field range and try and have some of these just from the pictures I took. Often times if people will just try this they will see is challenging and rewarding.

    Oklahoma Nfaa website is oklahomaarchery.org if anyone is interested in joining.
