    Default What is your routine for shooting.

    So how much do you guys shoot?Every night or just whenever you can?Do you set the amount of arrows to be shoot in a night?

    I try to get out every night and shoot 20 arrows ,5 each at 4 different distances.Week-ends can be alot more.

    Well SL I wish I had as much time as I use too. But I shoot the 20yard range 3 to 4 times a week. But now I have the ladder stand up I will practice as much as time allows. Also we need to replace our old outside target. I think once we build the new one I will go back to shooting 70yards regularly.

    Use to shoot 2 hour's a day when I had a better place to shoot. Nowadays I'm only shooting 30-50 shots per session, usually every day but lately due to other reasons it's been every couple of days and it has hurt my form (and strength) big time.

    No routine here. I just shoot when I feel like it(that is until I get a job).

    I try to shoot as much as possible at dusk. It is to hot down here to shoot during the day. I am trying to work on my form so I shoot basically at 20 yds and shoot until I can't hold the bow steady which now a days is only about 30 arrows.

    x2. Bout 60 arrows per pot of coffee...avg 5-7 pots of coffe/day. 300-420 arrows per day unless it's to hot n humid. Then it's less.

    I don't have a range at home (soon, I hope... as soon as I buy a house, apartment life sucks) and I work 10 hour days so I only get to shoot a couple days a week. Usually its Thursday and Friday after the kids go to school. Then I sneak off to a friend's house and throw 50-60 arrows. He has 20-50 yards marked out to a big bag, and a "trail" with some delta deer.

    Tell the wifes useless dog to start running bitch. She's a retired race dog, greyhound. I let her get a jump on me, so far she's still kicking, but some day she will slow down.

    I try to shoot 3-4 times a week. 50-60 arrows each time. I try to shoot early mornings and around dusk. Since I mostly hunt, that's when I'll be shooting the most when it counts. I shoot as early, and as late as I can during low light. Occasionally, I'll shoot a few during normal daylight as well.
