      It is possible that you brain works better in 3D as far as target acquisition or possibly shot execution. You can adapt to flat. It is also possible that you're living the delusional trope of thinking you're a better shot when it comes to 'what really matters', but can't seem to translate that to a real scoring system. That isn't an insult, it is common, and easy to do. When you miss something sitting on the ground, or even something suspended, sometimes you can still move it, either because the arrow gets deflected into it (off the ground), or turned sideways, and slaps what you're shooting at.

      If it's an 'aim small miss small thing', shoot for the 'X', not the outside ring.

      If you want to test the 3D thing, it is easy, buy some of these, and stick them in the middle of the target.....


      Stick it in the center of an NFAA blue face target, shoot your 60 arrows, at any pace you want, could all the the 'first arrow of the day' if you like, and score every arrow, no mulligans, no 'got distracted, doesn't count.'

      If it need to look like fur to stir the hunter in you...


      If it has to be real fur...


      Or you can just start by leaving one arrow in the center, and then shoot at the arrow. That is pretty 3D.

      Or you can wrap an NFAA or Vegas circular target centered in the perfect kill spot on a 3D target, give it a light dusting of spray paint, even put some fur (or spray adhesive with extra cat hair).

      Or if you are good with a compass and can affix a sharpie, you can draw the appropriate target circle diameters on a 3D target, before applying fur, and if you're using the skinny sharpie, for diagnostic purposes, good enough.

      If this doesn't pull you groups right up to a higher score, it's more about how you see your shots when they're not measured, than how you shoot worse at paper. However, on the plus side, even if this is the case, paper can be a really good diagnostic tool to help you figure out how shoot better in 'real life.'

      Let us know how it goes.

      I like the idea of the pom puff balls I ordered some. Not sure if it will help or not but should be a lot of fun Thanks
