    Default Another robin hood

    Got another robin hood while shooting a 3D goat at the den today. First arrow hit exactly where I wanted.....so did the second!

    Congrats!!!
    I'm nowhere near good but occassionaly I get lucky(? at $15 a pop is that really lucky) so I do the shoot one arrow, go pull it & shoot again system. Don't get near as many shots in for practice, but I think it makes for higher quality practice for me. I know that doesn't work well on public ranges, but it's great for my 30 yd indoor range!

    Vance,

    You need some 5 spot targets! One at a time gets more exercise in than shooting!

    I have a couple Mud, but for me the one well placed shot & then start all over seems to work best.
    When I'm in the bow mode I leave the bow in the basement (I'm a pastor & shoot in the church basement. I lock doors so there is no safety issue & then shoot through 4 rooms & into a fifth (through 4 door jams just to keep the pressure on) & shoot a couple arrows anytime I wander through (I use the coffee pot in the basement to make me go up & down the stairs .... And make me wander past the bow) & then sometimes go down for a 15 minute session. If I'm in the bow mode a normal day will see me get 30-50ish arrows in from 8-30 yds.
    Besides, this fat boy NEED the exercise!!!!!

    I shoot gold tip hunters or traditionals. I haven't racked up to many yet, I don't think it's as common for traditional shooters as it is for compound shooters. Besides I can shoot that $15 arrow hundreds of times were as the .338 win/mag costs $2.75 every time I pull the trigger!

    Dude wood arrows would be expensive! Besides in my neck of the woods you can sit and watch them warp in the quiver.

    Great shooting Rick. As for shooting carbon arrows, wouldn't even trying for Robin Hoods get expensive, as my understanding is nicking carbon arrows with the tip of another arrow can render arrows useless if they get any kind of crack in them, no? (have you seen the pics of carbon arrows shattering and going through someone's wrist on the let off?)

    I'm still shooting aluminum as I haven't decided whether I want to upgrade my 10 year old + bow with new, faster, lighter carbon arrows, or if I want to replace it with an entirely new bow, with faster, lighter, carbon arrows.

    Not sure the FOBS would work real well on trad bows shooting off the shelf...
