First shot off my deck with my 48# recurve. Popped the 4" balloon. That gives me confidence. Have not shot for a week and last session absolutely sucked. I always value the FIRST shot. Maybe I will give it a go after all - at least early season! Now I just gotta ingrain what I did. Last session everything was pulling left in the gut.

Buckeyes should be called Hawkeyes lol! I believe that is the part of the replacement section that should be on the other side of the target..

 

Nice shooting Jack

I never go by any targets anatomy. Although it's more accurate on other side

I always chuckle when I look at these 3d targets.  Does any bowhunter really say to himself: Gee, where is the heart, lungs, liver cause I'm not so sure?  Behind the front leg? Near the back leg?  Oh, now I know thanks to the 3d target.  Aim just behind the front leg...Just funny.

After all the anatomical charts and pictures you have posted over the years and now you post this with the liver in front of the heart?!   :whatever: Nice shot.

I shot a Matthews HTR other day for the first time ever shooting a compound bow,,,,,had a tight group my first 3 arrows. After that not so much. Should've stopped after those myself,,,lol.

Not a bad idea if you are already a seasoned shooter with many years behind you. In hunting situation you only get one shot so what good is it if you only get steady and better after a few warm up shots.

The leatherwall over on bowsite has a first shot post everyday.  I enjoy following along and that first cold shot is the one that counts.  

We should consider doing something like that here too.  Someone calls the shot for the day and people following along share their results.

Its fun to try different stances, distances, angles, obstructions....etc.  

 

I also apologize for hijacking your thread.....nice shooting :up:

In the interest of FULL DISCLOSURE - this was my next 8 shot group. The first shot was borderline gut/liver.  I did break the balloon again on the 4th shot, but there were far too many outliers and once again, the confidence level  in hunting without training wheels plummeted.  Only 4 out of the 8 would have been probable kill-recovery shots. The rest would have been "wait and pray".  Gotta practice more to get this instinctive shooting thing down, but every now and then when it feels right and the shot comes together, it is much more rewarding feeling than hitting a quarter at 20 yards with the compound.

It's never going to be perfect.  Forget about what you can do with the high tech machinery or a 30/06...
