    Weater permitting, I shoot once or twice a week, 30-50 arrows in a sitting. Mostly because I can, it's relaxing, and practice makes perfect (I've got a LONG ways to go )

    At least 5 days per week. I try for the weekends too but sometimes that means getting to shoot a whole lot - or - not at all.

    I bring a bow to work with me every day and have a target set up in the shop.

    Instead of coffee or smoke breaks - I take Bow Breaks.

    Why - - - - well I guess I am just an addict.


    Better than being a caffine or nicotine addict . ! . ! !!!

    I try to shoot every other night at least a dozen or so. Its not uncommon on weekends with 3D and just messing around in the back yard to shoot a couple hundred shots.

    I shoot every day, at least 2 sets of 4 on those days when everything hurts, more when I'm feeling good. Cause I can.

    I try to shoot daily with maybe just a few arrow on an 20 yard indoor target. Fri-Sun I shoot every moring from about 0630am to about 0830am on my range that out to a 100yards, couple of hundered shots as long as my hands and shoulder hang in there.
