Alright Creamer... Enough with the bullseye's! Show and tell us about your shanks. Lol! For just picking up the recurve you seem to be drilling the target more often than not. I wish I could say the same. (I'm just jealous is all)

Oh there are bad ones, but I'd confidently say the bad ones are getting much better than they were when I first started. Cold shots have improved a lot over the last 2 weeks or so. I've been trying to slowly extend my comfort range, and it's been a slow process. I feel a big difference going from 15 yards back to 20-22 yards and the groupings usually show it. The tight group above was about 15-16 yards. I only shot at 20 the 4 groups after and groupings really expand for me. I'm still hitting the target and the misses aren't awful misses, but in the last 4 groups at 20 yards I only had 4/4 in the kill zone once, 3/4 once, 2/4 the other two.

We all know his wife is the one shooting while he’s in the garage playing with his wood when he’s not making cat toys...😂

Good deal man. It is amazing how big a difference just 5 yards can make. Just when you think you have it figured out, step back 5 yards and watch it all go to hell. 😂

Sorry, boss. Last night's coldie.



My left hand was going numb after two groups so I only shot 3. Last group at a shade over 20 yards, where I usually start to struggle. My clunker of the night was the low-right here. The other three were pretty good for me at that distance.

Not gonna lie. The cold shot was the high shot here. Last night was my worst "feeling" night of shooting in a while. I just didn't feel comfortable for some reason. The three arrows after the cold shot were my most consistent 3 of the night.

Yes you definitely have it bad man! But that's a good thing.

Didn't take a picture but I took a few last cold shots the other day. Felt good to know I still "had it." Now I'll put it away until it warms up again I suppose.
