    Not really an off-topic, but what group sizes does everyone shoot at say 30 yards? On average. Not the one time you shot a 1/2 inch group while it was totally windstill Hutch. lol

    Bow pics 005.jpg Both pics are second round of 4 @30 yds.. First round was a little wider. I used some older arrows cause I rarely shoot groups. Don't like taking the chance of bustin up my arrows.Bow pics 002.jpg

    4" at 30 yards but I don't have great form atm . I don't shoot groups much except for sighting in for two reasons. First is the obvious damage you get and the other is that it lies sometimes.

    Here's a couple blurry pictures from some indoor practice a few months ago.........some days are tighter (& some wider), but I'd say this is fairly typical groups I might shoot, including the 3rd or 4th arrow I seem to pull off a bit low/right. Not sure what size those dots are.........3"? and appears that day I hitting a bit left.

    After a few weeks of not shooting, finally did a little outside practice yesterday afternoon out to 60yds, and found myself hitting to the just off right most shots this time.

    soon as I get a new target I'll shoot groups and take pics for proof. On a typical day, my 30yd groups are 4 arrows touching inside of a 2.5" circle. At 40yds they aren't ALL touching,but are inside of 3" circle. Wish I could find a way to shoot groups in live 'coons. That's all the shooting I've been able to do lately. Lol

    Build your own target Hawg. We have one we made about a year ago, and it must have 8000 shots or more in it. The facing is still good condition other than a little 4" hole, which is still shoot-able. The target is 3' wide 4' tall and 20" deep, that is our indoor one. The out door one is a block that we made as well.

    Hawg,
