The last few month I have gotten into shooting spots during the off season to really dial in my form etc. In this game the slightest thing in your equipment and your form can make or break your performance. Really if you think about it there is know difference when it comes to archery hunting ethically I might add. We want to be the best we can be and we owe it to the animals we hunt at least IMO. So you might ask why target archery.
It gives you the time in the off season to really focus on your form and equipment. Lets just say it will really fine tunes you when your goal is to hit the 10 ring or X ring on a Vegas face target. Then if you take it another step up and compete in this fashion the pressure is amazing and gets you going like calling in a bugling bull. So in that aspect it could have some benefits as well when it comes time to controlling your nerves.
I just got back from my first competitive target archery competition in Vegas and I must say the competition was tough and the nerves were even tougher. I entered the Bowhunter Freestyle Flight Division and there were about 160 shooters competing in that class. Had a blast and can't wait for next year to compete for that top position and really fine tune my skills for what I like to do. That my friends is to have a bow in my hand and the reason I think I will be hooked on the target archery in the off season. Competing in Vegas was a great experience and would highly recommend it. Lord willing I will see you there next year.
