    I went to shoot my bow for the 3rd time today and shot an arrow inside another arrow from 20 yards. Obviously I was trying to get a good group, but never expected this. Since I am new, I do not know if this is just something that happens once in a while, or if this is as rare as a hole-in-one in golf. I have attached some pics. Let me know. :whoo:

    The more you shoot groups, the more that is going to happen as you improve. Try shooting at a 5 spot target. It will cost you less money in the long run.

    It doesn't happen all that often. It's fun when it does until you done it a few times then it just gets expensive.

    Don't listen to them CTHunter. Keep shooting groups its only money you can make more.







    Message to self "Buy stock in arrows":laugh:





    Nice Job there but I will have to agree you need to start shooting some 5-spots. The first couple of times its cool from then on its just like tossing money out the window.

    I did it twice in one day on two different occations. Get a five spot target. Arrows cost to much. Unless you can afford it!

Dont get me wrong, its still a good thing to get one now days.... i have a few cool ones im proud of...... congrats on yours!!!!!
