    Default Practice Shooting Targets

    About how many shots at the target is about right for a practice session of one hour? This assumes perfect practice and consistent impact before fatigue ensues and accuracy deteriorates.

    Thanks

    Thumbs up

    40.
    Now, lets go a little further. Yes one hour of practice is better then none, but if you plan to shoot tournaments you should practice longer than the tournament style you are going to shoot if that is possible. IE: a 300 round takes about 1:45 in a local tournament, so two hours of practice would be the least to stop fatigue in the tournament. This could go on and on, but in one hour 40 is correct. Pay attention to how your ends transition into games. See where you start to loose focus and on what. This is now a 200 round, so you should score it inside out. This will virtually help you prepare mentally for a 300 round in a tourney.

    Default practice

    Alot will depend on your own shooting style and routine. If you are planing on shooting tournaments I would recommend being able to shoot at least 1 1/2 times the amount of arrows. So a 300 round (60 arrows) you should be able to shoot 90 arrows. this is only my opinion, so others may have different views.

    IMHO, you should shoot at a target only so long as you can shoot good shots. Before and after that you should shoot a blank bale, first to warm up and improve your form, then to build endurance & improve form.

    There is an old saying that "Practice doesn't make perfect, Perfect practice makes perfect".

    The practical application to shooting is to only shoot at a target as long as you can manage the best form of which you are capable.

    But what if that's only a few arrows? You still need to build strength and endurance for whatever game you plan to compete in. That is where the blank bale comes in. You can also concentrate on each part of your form without worrying about trying to hit a specific spot.

    There seem to be two parts of practice that are effective to building good form. First is the first 10 to 15 arrows. You have to know all the parts and pieces of your shot to get these right. The second is when you are tired. If you can keep good form when your muscles are tired, you are more deeply ingraining good form into your subconscious.

    Just my opinion,
    Allen
