SHOOTING LOW NEED HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

CROPDUSTER56386

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?

EXTREME

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.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.

      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.
