Default What happend to Dave Cousins at the nationals

I was looking at the results from the Indoor nationals and noticed Cousins had a horrible two days. He missed the x ring 6 times which is the same size as the 10 ring on the vegas face.---In vegas he only missed the baby x ring 6 times out of 90 arrows. What gives? I bet he had a long ride back home.---When you are in that league, you know when you drop one arrow, it's over. Must be a lot of pressure. I hope Dave gets his problems worked out.

Any athlete can have a bad showing. It might be something that the rest of us wouldn't even notice, but Dave shoots at such a high level, that any little thing is much more noticeable. It's been said many times before, indoor spots is a game of perfect and if you're not, then you won't be in the shoot off.

I wonder if this will get him to switch over to one of Hoyt's longer ATA bows.

Dave is a great archer and I'm sure that he will be back in the shoot offs for years to come.

He was shooting 3-39's and just missed the line for a 5... after that realizing it was over he went to having fun... even went to shooting all 5 at a single spot for a while... The miss was so close that it was a tight call..

Don't read anything more into it than that..

I thought the same thing; I bet he puts the hunting bows aside and goes back to the longer bows.

You have guys shooting 40+ inch bows missing the X. I know longer ata bows are more forgiving but at 20yds how forgiving does a bow have to be and really how much difference can there be with a bow at 20yds. Dave has been shooting the maxis great and he has a so called bad outing and all of a sudden its the bow. Its the shooter when you know the bow is tunned and on. You could say what happened to Nathan or Chance was it their bows too. Them guys are great shooters too, sometimes you have a few brain farts and it cost you.

You're probably right. Just trying to get a little dialog going on a Monday morning. To me, the twenty yard game is all about aiming. Just keep aiming until the darn thing fires.

Hopkins didnt have the best tournament as well. Dropped three X.s the first day.

It happens to us all eventually. Good to see some of the top guns have there bad days as well.
