Double Your Distance

I think we all could agree that the majority of archery hunting animals such as whitetails, occurs at distances of 40 yards or closer. I think this is the main reason so many of us chose to chase big game animals with archery equipment. The simple fact that we have to challenge ourselves to Double Your Distance. I think we all could agree that the majority of archery hunting animals such as whitetails, occurs at distances of 40 yards or closer. I think this is the main reason so many of us chose to chase big game animals with archery equipment. The simple fact that we have to challenge ourselves to not only proficiently shoot archery tackle but to close the distance on these weary animals. Below you will find information that will increase your odds, by improving your confidence and shooting abilities.

I started using this tip several years ago, and I feel this will improve your shooting form and accuracy. In this tip I will discuss the importance of long range practice and how this pertains to your hunting application. After reading this article I hope you begin the tedious task of implementing this process in your practice regimen, and see how beneficial it can be.

As stated above the majority of our big game hunting is usually done at distances of 40 yards or closer. With this being said, I do the largest part of my practicing at distances between 60 and 80 yards. When shooting these longer distances I do not focus on hitting the bulls eye, but in stead my form. If your form is consistently good, hitting the bulls eye will come. However, if its not you will have trouble even hitting the target. After shooting 60-70% of my arrows at these distances, I move closer and began shooting at 40 yards, and work my way down to 20 yards. All it takes is once and you will see not only why this is important, but how it can improve your shooting. When you move into these closer distances the target becomes enormous and your groups will begin to tighten up. This occurs because the target obviously looks bigger because your closer, but the most important aspect is the improved consistence with your form. This will have your groups tightening up in no time. Give this tip a try and let me know what you think. However, I’m not responsible for lost arrow. o not only proficiently shoot archery tackle but to close the distance on these weary animals.

    Also another important key to shooting that we express deeply at or shop (A1 Archery) is to make sure you have a nice relaxing grip on the bow insteade of a death grip.also another key factor is to pull through your release insteade of punching or slapping the trigger.This will help you and prevent you from torquing your bow and getting rid of the crazy left and right flyers. A clean release will also give you better grouping and tighter groups. Using these methods at long distances will make you a better archer overall and make the short distance shots cake shots. Main thing is staying persistent And not giving up
