I have shot by myself since I moved up to Alaska. The pressure, competition and will to shoot well in front of others has completely gone. So the ability to shoot as good around others, or thoughts of others, as well as I shoot alone with a clear mind does not compare. Through this I have learned a couple things. Be honest to myself. If I hit a target I wasn't aiming for, what good does it do to play it off like that was my original plan. Second, losing the competitive edge is not worth losing.
DeepRiverBowman, I tried doing the blank bail. That is so difficult in reality to do because I base all my adjustments off of where my arrow landed in reference to where I was aiming. To not think about where the arrow is going is a lot harder than what I thought when I read your suggestion.
Amazing how much of a mind game this sport is.
