Archery Training

For archery training tonight we shot at Portsmouth targets. I didn’t have a great start, it’s important for me to remember about the string picture again in order to make a good shot.

I also found that it was important for me to remember to drop my draw shoulder, as I began with my shoulder quite high, but once I focused on it and made it drop to become more horizontal and in-line my shots fell more on target.

I notice that the arrow came off the arrow rest a couple of times tonight. I then noticed that the arrow rest had moved slightly. So I got out my allen key and modified the arrow rest so the arrow sat nicely into the slight dip in the metal arrow rest arm part.

I was contemplating winding my limb bolts in to go from 38lb pull to a 40lb pull on my 34lb recurve limbs. The problem is then my old Easton XX75 Platinum Plus 1916 arrow spine may be incorrect. I have thought about purchasing some Easton Fatboy arrows with a 500 spine, but I might wait now until we go back indoors later in 2016.
