    Anyone ever try shooting with an Ipod going in their ear?
    might be just my generation But I think I might just go try it

    Just be sure to run the cord from the ipod behind you and up from your back, I have heard of people not doing that and their bowstring ripping the earbud out of their ear and sending the ipod down the lane.:doh: Then there are 3 things gonna happen :bad arrow flight, hurt ear, and one expensive radio broken. Be careful with how you use it, could be a costly experience.

    I shoot very often with music playing. I'm too cheap to own a Ipod though, all my money goes to archery supplies.:peace:

    looks like another expensive hobby of mine,

    No, I don't like a lot of background noise. It's the hunting in me though that makes me sensitive to that. I've only done target for a short time. 3D a little longer and hunting for quite a while. It's just what I'm used to I guess.

    OK, we all saw Blade 3. I think you should concentrate on the shooting. There is enough there to occupy your mind. A IPOD will only distract you. Don't take archery advice from Hollywood, unless you are hunting vampires.

    I disagree with that! --- Sometimes... I find having music playing that I concentrate on the music more than shooting and I shoot better! If you have to concentrate to shoot, than its concentrating and not shooting :noidea: IMO

    I shoot with my iPod all the time.

    Yeah, just trying to keep the pin on the target is challenging enough for me...
    Althought some Rush or Lynyrd Skynyrd might calm my nerves...

    I've seen your shooting. In your case, I'll chip in for batteries.

    Maybe we should just get him an extension cord... batteries will run out long before he hits the target :laugh:

    AS for Ipods - I know a lot of guys wear them when shooting in tourneys to keep from being distracted by the other people on the line but make sure your music isn't to loud otherwise other people will hear it and I think they can complain about it and get you booted

    I'm afraid I'd start bopping to the music...which wouldn't do well when you're trying to keep still. We have a radio at the range but it doesn't work so really havn't tried, but I know what I do when there is music on.

    Hmmm you might be onto something now that you mention the TP. I have trouble getting the shots off sometimes...(BT release) so maybe if we're thinking bout the music the shot will go off like it's supposed to. The only problem is will we hit the target>>>?
