AroundBowAttachedtoThumbI simply love my new little finger sling!  Simple, Cheap, and keeps my bow from hitting the ground….how much better can it get?  Plus, I don’t have to worry about my bow at all while shooting!  BONUS!

Went to the field tonight.  Sure it was hot, but what the heck….I did my Gap shooting and was amazed at how different the numbers were from previous shooting.  And then I noticed my form had changed!

WHAT?  FORM HAD CHANGED?  Yes!  I am drawing a longer draw length than previously.  Instead of the string touching the end of my nose, it is now alongside my nose.  Parts of inches!  But I have to say it makes a difference!  Right now I can feel a bit of muscle issue in my shoulders and neck area.  That has to be a product of my drawing back farther.  Those that know can chime in now.

So, I show my gap and noted the differences.  Then settled in at 20 yards and began my practice for the evening.  Here are the ends I took pictures of:







These are all shot at 20 yards and if you notice I’m starting to hone in my shots into the black ring and closer to the yellow.  Sure there are those errant shots that miss the entire while target, but for the most part they are zinging into the target in pretty good fashion if you ask me…..just ask me.  The black and red fletched arrow is bent and I shoot it first in my series.  It makes the rest of the arrows feel really good when it happens to hit the target.  Sometimes it evens finds the center!!!!  BONUS!  I had to retire arrow number 8 because the fletching I put on it yesterday is off several degrees.  So I will re-fletch it and it will be a winner then.  Until then…I own 7 arrows!

Tonight it did not miss the “bunk” once!  A bonus in my book!  And in all my sets I only had two arrows miss the big white target a couple of times.  I had one end where “if” the last arrow would have flown where I wanted it, I would have had them all within the blue ring!!!!  So, listen folks!  If I can do this so can you!

Enjoy the time you have and enjoy every minute of it because GOD does not promise you the next moment!

      I won’t have time to shoot on the 4th, besides wait until you see how good the archers are that come to the shoot! Some of these guys have to intentionally miss in order not to Robin Hood every time they shoot.
