  1. all i got was a "page could not be displayed"
  2. It's gotta be them, I checked the link after I posted and it worked fine, but now I can't get it either.
  3. I get a "The requested resource is in use."
  4. It's back up now.

  6. Sorry, nothing like the real thing.:D

    I'm happy cause I broke my first 200!! Shoot 6 arrows 8 times and various distances (20 yards, 30 yards, 40 yards, 20 yards in 30 seconds, 60 yards, 80 yards, 100 yards, and 150 yards)

    Each distance has a total score of 30 points, except for the 20 in 30 seconds. That one depends on how many arrows you can get off. I average about 7-8.

    The 80 and the 150 are my toughest distances. 150 yards is a long way, scored not by hitting a target standing up, but by measureing out from a stake in the ground. And 80 is just one of those intermediate distances that I just can't seem to find and aim point for.

    Rock on
  7. Gap shooting are we Eric?:D
    What kind of bow are you shooting, and what weight and draw length? I don't gap shoot, I'm an instinctive shooter, I just look at the target and let it fly. Of course consistency is a problem, especially in field rounds.

    Hey Eric, exactly how expensive hobby is that? I think there is a local archery club here that has try-out courses for anyone who wants to try the sport.

    Too bad it's winter soon, so I won't probably be able to try it out until next summer but..
  9. I play with an 11th Century English Longbow, with a 50 lb draw at 28 inches.

    And I'm mostly instinctive, especially at the closer ranges. 20 is almost nothing, just a point and shoot. But you really do have to aim at anything over about 60. You are tryin to make a piece of wood that's 1/4" across go into a black dot 2" across that are 60-150 yards apart. The probablity of missing is astronomical.

    Rock on
  10. Managed to get 320. In my last round, I had to get 60 to pass. That's a bull's eye every single time and they throw changeups!
