SHOOTING LOW NEED HELP!!!

6 posts in this topic

Over the weekend a couple buddies and i went to a 3D shoot. I am an alright shoot but nothing like one of the guys that was with me he can drive tacs at 50 yds. We go to the shoot started running the course about 4 targets in my buddy started shooting low not just an inch it was bad enough that he had to go to his next pin every time just to hit the target. We checked his sight it was tight,looked at his peep it was tight, the rest had not moved, and he said that his anchor points had not changed. He gave the bow to me to shoot every shot that i made was with the right pin i did not have to pin up and all of them were tight groups. I did 20yds, 30yds, and 40yds all of them were right on does anybody know what is going on with his shooting?

if I had to guess, he changed his grip pressure point.. or was pass shooting?

Would almost guarantee that your buddy is not "following through" with his shots. He probably needs to keep the pin on the target longer after he releases. Believe it or not; you can let your arm down before your arrow leaves the rest. Give it a day or two and try it again.

Probably torqueing his grip.

Hes dropping his bow arm and probably not following through. I missed a nice buck on the river bottom by 2 inches low becasue I dropped my arm. Every practice/shooting session, take 6-10 arrows 10 yards no bullseye and justs concentrate. Say stance, grip, anchor, float, realllleeeaassseee, and follow through as you shoot out loud to your self. The float is supposed to be watching your pin "float" on the target. Dont hold it or its harder to hold but let it go through the motions and youll notice after a while the arcs the sights cover are smaller and maybe not even off the bull. Its good mental practice too for when Mojo shows up under ur stand and youre the equivelent of molten goo.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
