    Nah, I'm oldschool, still mainly feet and inches for me, especially when it comes to shooting distances (I have been known to mix and match when building stuff, confuses people helping me when I ask for a panel of 2ft 6'' by 780mm LoL).

    First day out shooting at 100 yards. Marked off 100 yards. Set up a block target and started shooting. One word....WOW. I had dropped a pin to the bottom of my site housing and started from there. First arrow landed short...WAY SHORT! I am shooting 60 lbs on the Alien and have found that I have to pick a spot about 9 feet above the block to aim at to hit the target. After bracketing in on the target and getting to where I was hitting the block at least with all three arrows. I took a break and came in and got the plate and the camera with high hopes. When I walked out about 15 minutes later, the wind had picked up and the sun was lower in the sky and shining right in my face.....then the Mexicans showed up to mow between the rows of the peach orchards next to where I am shooting. After making three attempts and having at least one arrow missing the block I called it a day. It isn't going to be easy fellas.

    Word of advise....make sure the area around your target is cleared and the grass is short before you start shooting. It will make finding the arrows easier when you first start shooting and bracketing in on the target. Good luck!!!

    We have a 100 yd practice bale up at the club, last mark on my HHA sighted Field bow is 90 yds, so the only way to get the pin on target will be to move the gang adjustment. Will give it a go next I'm up there. This event will be limited to HAND HELD bows, Right? No shooting machines, right?

    Yes!!!!!! NO machines or Crossbows. Martin and Ryteras are preferred.

    First post is up on the video thread!!! The wind died down enough for me to get out and shoot some this afternoon before work.
