I agree! It's not really "how many" shots you take, it's are they meaningful! If you just go down to the local shop and "wing" 200 arrows without shooting each one like you were in a tourney then I think you are wasting your time! It's very easy to get complacent, and just sling arrows! I feel you would benefit more with 25 "good" arrows both mentaly and physicaly, then 1000 randomly slung arrows! Granite you need to shoot regulary to keep muscle memory, and strength! Thats what blank bail can be used for! I personaly prefer to shoot very few warm up arrows, and then like to score! JUST LIKE IN COMPETITION! If you put some kind of "pressure" on yourself (mentaly) it will eventualy make you a better archer, and you will be able to shoot that perfect shot when the time is needed! Thanks for reading this, just had to put in my 10 cents worth!:wink:I try to shoot at least 3 days a week. When I do shoot I try to get at least 40 shots in. Sometimes I'll shoot for hours, sometimes I'll only have 30-40 mins. Just have to make what shots I get in count.
