Awesome Day of Shooting, Thank You

I haven’t posted on my progress lately, so I figured today is a good day to do so. I frequently read the threads here on AT, and add my 2 cents occasionally. There is an abundance of knowlege available here and I try to use as much of it as I can. Recently, I dropped in bow weight from 57#@27 to 46@#27. I did this because even though I could draw, anchor and hold the heavier weight I was having difficulty controlling my bow arm. I also was loaned all of the Masters of the Barebows DVD’s, from my good archer friend and fellow Connoquenessing Valley Bowman member, Kegan.

The MBB videos are excellent, there is alot of information on there with regards to form, target panic, etc. I decided to put Rod Jenkins 7 steps at the Blank bale to work. My goal was to tame my bow arm, fine tune my shot sequence, and clean up my release. I did this religiously all week, either before work in the morning, after work, or both. I broke alot of nocks, and one shaft shooting close range blank bale, LOL! I am amazed at the immediate results that I have gained. I am a work in progress, and have a long way to go, but March of this year will mark 1 year from when I purchased my Samick Sage and decided to go traditional.

Below you will find 2 pictures. We had 2 shoots today. I shot both with my 66" Omega Longbow 46#@27, Gold Tip 5575 Trads full length, 225g up front. We shot a traditional only 3D this morning out in the snow and 15 degree weather, 30 targets, max score 300 (10 ring, 8 vital, 5 body). Even with frozen fingers, I shot a 242, my personal best. I even hit the 11 ring (even though we don’t score it) on a 30 yd Bear target. This afternoon we headed to the club, for our Sunday traditional bows 600 Fita round. I shot a 483, my personal best, and 34 points higher than my previous best. The difference today was I felt I could not miss. I did not hit yellow on every arrow, but at release I felt like I was going to hit it, my bow arm was steady, my form was solid, and there was NO target panic. I should mention also I have to cant the bow a good 30 degrees or more to clear the ceiling, so I am anxious to see how well I can shoot next year when we replace the roof and raise the ceiling at the club allowing me to shoot more vertically.

Thanks for looking. I credit many here at AT for my success, you have been a welcome wealth of knowledge for me this past year. Also thanks to Kegan who I shoot with often. He is a living archery encyclopedia, an excellent bowyer, and has been a huge part of my sucess.
