First Archery Shoot after Christmas

By | 3rd January 2016

Today was the 1st archery shoot after Christmas, and I hadn’t shot since well before Christmas. I always had the intention to practice over the Christmas period but never managed it with the weather being so bad outside.

Well anyway we shot a Portsmouth round today to ease ourselves back in to shooting. It didn’t go too badly but I only managed a 464 score, which is only an E classification. I think the problem is that I did not start getting 9s and 10s until about half way through the round. The problem seemed to be getting the correct string picture then I was away. But after this and towards the end of the round fatigue started to set in, as I knew it would pulling 38lb and not practicing for several weeks.

It’s amazing how many people got Santa to bring them some new archery equipment. Such things purchased included new archery bags, new long rods, new arrows, risers, limbs, sights, strings etc. There must have been at least 5 people out of 15 with some sort of new equipment.
