Thread: Worst Target
10-11-2007, 03:36 AM #1
I was just reflecting over the past season, about which targets I needed the most improvement on. The turkeys and foxes got me most often. With the turkeys it was not so much the size of the 10 as it was the locations. I just don't have them memorized to the point of instinct. I am still trying to figure out the fox situation. What was your hardest target(s) this season and what are you going to do to improve on it for next season?

Walking bear next to a standing bear. The shot your supposed to make is on the walking bear. and stupid me, I guess I thought the bear standing on two feet was walking because thats the one I shot drilled the X and scored a Zero.
This year I'm going to slow down a bit and think. My worst targets are extreme down hill shots.No if's and or but's Just Maybee.

Turkeys and the Gator. I either hit a 12 or a 5 on the turkeys and I either miss or 12 the gator. It seems like there is no in between on them..

You guys need to come over here, where the yardage is marked and there is a big orangs spot on the target to shoot at

I hate the gator. I have better luck with the top vital than the side one.
The Foxes and yotes get me because the rings always seem too far back. Especially if they are turned facing away. That seems to shift things. I'm talking Rineharts.
Even with 8X binos, they can be difficult to see in certain light. All part of the game.
I made a scorecard holder with the Rinehart vitals. Has 30 on it. I need it maybe 4Xs a shoot, when I just can't seem to see the rings.
