Practice Often Before The Season Starts

3D Archery a great way to get ready for the bow season

 

I  had a few hours to go out for a 3D event at the Wild Goose Archery Club in Kingsville this morning,

Met up with a fellow member of the SWOC and her two kids, one who was there to shoot, the other to carry the bino

Danielle Russell the SWOC.ca web master and also her own website EverythingOutdoors.ca was there to tune up for an upcoming moose /deer hunt with hubby Scott .

Hey Greg,,,best wishes on a fast recovery for the eye too!

She had just returned  a week before from an SCI Canada sponsored Bear Hunt, one of 12 ladies participating in the hunt.

More details on that when I speak with John from SCI,

Although Danielle didn’t get her bear she had an awesome time, as did all the ladies.

She even texted me this photo from the tree stand.

 At todays 3D event she shot a decent score, me not so good with a bad miss and too many 5s!!!!

Like I said  “Its’ time to perfect your practice routine before the season starts”

NOW I know my fifty yard pin is way OFF!

Thank fully my 20 -20-40 were good as I  made some decent shots on the deer targets and two thunder chickens!

How To Eliminate Peep Sight Twist

Are you one of those of bow hunters that have a love-hate relationship with your peep sight?

 

 

Has your peep sight twisted just when you’re about to take a shot?

Has your peep sight filled with moisture from snow or rain?

 Have you found bits of dirt or foliage in your peep sight?

Are you one of those archers that experiences difficulty achieving the same anchor point each time you draw your bow?

Every archer knows that a consistent draw is the key to accuracy.

Have you found using a peep sight in low light conditions just doesn’t work?

Have you ever damaged you’re sight pins while traveling?

Now there is an easy way to eliminate all those peep sight problems.

 

 Remove it !!!

 

Eliminate all those problems and install an Eliminator Pro Sight.

eliminate your peep site with an Eliminator Pro Sight

Not only with your accuracy improve but you will eliminate hand torque on your riser and obtain the same full draw position every time.

If you are left eye dominant and a right hand shooter or right eye dominant shooter using your left hand this sight will also eliminate those problems.

Eliminator Pro site installs on left-handed or right-handed bow and can be easily removed and installed again while still maintaining pinpoint accuracy.

When traveling by airlines you can easily remove your Eliminator Pro Sight and quickly reinstall before your hunt, preventing any in-flight damage.

 

With two styles to choose from

For hunters who prefer a horizontal site

When you want Vertical Pins

                 Available In Black or Camo

Do you shoot with both eyes open

Shooting a bow with both eyes open takes some practice just like anything other eye hand co-ordination

As a hunter seeing the whole target before zoning into that one spot I find shooting with both eyes open quicker and more accurate.

Think about it,,,with your dominant eye focused on your pins and the farthest from the target with your front eye closed you’re losing about 40 % of the view, Try hol up a finger and aim with one eye closed, now try it with both eyes open.

 

Big difference right?

It’s not for everyone but certainly worth the time to practice shooting with both eyes open next time your at a 3D event or just shooting in your backyard.

For years I shot with one eye closed  when using any firearm or archery equipment. I often saw the experts and pros shoot with both eyes open so I decided to try it.

I used a modified approach were I started with one eye closed, squinted with it then opened it as my sight picture became clear and focused.

Try it and it just might OPEN YOUR EYES!

Video of 3D Archery Shoot

Do YOU want to be a better bow hunter?

Grab your archery equipment and head out to your nearest archery club. Many offer both indoor and outdoor 3D shooting.

Spending a few hours shooting your bow at 3D targets like deer and turkey will certainly help your aim!

Choose the most difficult position and try shooting sitting, kneeling or from an elevated position if available.

When it’s your turn to shoot draw your bow, aim and release in as quick as time as you can without loosing accuracy and maybe your arrow!

Check out the Video Hunting Tip page for more.

Knowing your bow and sights is also key to making a great shot under (imposed pressure) and time.

When allowed ( on informal fun shoots) use your Rangefinder and binoculars to become more accurate. You can’t blame your equipment then,,,

A typical 3D course of fire involves about 30 targets.
