Re: Do You Shoot Archery Competition?

Congratulations on your shooting.

Participating in these events is a thrill, never to be forgotten.
You won't win every competition you enter, but you do build
character.

Win a major Competition and the cost of the Bows will diminish
some what. Yes, competition bows are spendy any where from
$800.00 to $1200.00 and your lucky to sell it for half. Few
archers shoot competition archery. Why? Too much work and
you have to be really dedicated to perfection.


Practice Practice and Practice.

you are spot on! shoot competition as we speak. Shoot freestyle class indoor vegas/5spot in wyoming. Just shot last weekend state NFAA and shot 2nd place in vegas. I'm usually in the top 3 depending on my practice habits. I have won and my practice and drive was on serious this year, 2010. work is killing my archery!

Re: Do You Shoot Archery Competition?

Love archery. My first question to fellow archers is what is your definition of accurate. killing a deer isn't really accurate to me. killing a prairie dog at 100yrd with bow is accurate in the heart. still workin on this shot as we speak. Gillette wyo rocky mtn some serious shooters in that group. superior archery badazz shooter also. perfectionist of form is the secret. still workin on this. last weekend shot state vegas indoor, took 2nd. and wasn't happy with shooting. Nerves was a issue on the line. Have won this shoot before and my nerves was a issue then also. now i have a 7mm ultramag to play with and gonna see what happens. the evolution in long range has begun.

Accuracy: Shooting a Vegas round with 60 x's, every time is an example.
Shooting 6 arrows at 90 meters with 6 x's is an example.

There are few archers who have this capability.

You can meet them at the Vegas Shoot, NFAA Nationals, indoors and field,
NAA Nationals Indoors and Field and The World Archery Federation Championships.

The Shooting sports all have the following in common; Absolute Dedication to the
sport and Practice, Practice and more Practice.

The 7mm Mag is fun.

Re: Do You Shoot Archery Competition?

Shooting Indoor competition using either the 3 spot Vegas or the five spot NFAA
target. It's fun to watch an archer shoot a perfect score. The trial is when
they shoot perfect ends for the entire shoot. They know where the arrow is
going every shot. It's not just the men, it's also the women archers.
