    That is a STARTING POINT and normally gets you within 1/2". However, it was initially done for FINGER SHOOTERS shooting recurved bows which obviously were longer (66", 70", 72" most common) than the...

    Yep, but just like the Vegas shoot and any other tournament. EVERYONE knows the scoring rules well in advance, and everyone uses the same scoring rules; albeit different for "Pros" versus "Joes."

    Yep, I hear you on the "they all shoot 360, now, don't they?" That and the blue face is "boring", "too easy", "too many arrows to have to concentrate that long for," "a marathon round." There are...

    Say What? You think 50 arrows in just under 9 hours is fast? OR are you being facetious? For NFAA Competitions, 116 shots, FOUR shooters, FOUR arrows each per target, 28 targets...all done in 5-6...

    Yepp, that stuff is indeed in my book "ProActive Archery"; that and then some!

    One other caveat to all this is that during windy conditions most shooters try to control the shot process and end up...

    In order to know how much "bubble" to give it, you have to PRACTICE canting your bubble by 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full bubble on a CALM day. Then you shoot several groups and note the impact point...
