Shanked shot #4 when I should have just let down and regrouped. I was pissed that I didn't focus more and have the wisdom to just let down, so I spent the next several minutes drawing and holding to remind myself what proper form feels like and to confirm (what I think) went wrong on the shot. I guess tomorrow will tell!

It’s going to be a long 24 hours.

Finished shot 5 this AM. Day 1 & 2 I used my thumb release and shot execution was horrible. Changed to my Tension release for D3 - 5 and much better results. I really need to work on the thumb release shot execution as I dont want to hunt with a tension release. Its always something in archery:) - the never-ending quest to improve.

Shanked shot #4 when I should have just let down and regrouped. I didn’t take any practice shots, but I definitely drew and held a few times to remind myself what proper form feels like and to confirm that my grip was wrong on the shot.

That’s partly why I don’t sweat it when people draw & let down. It does not always result in a better shot. That was my case yesterday
Good luck tomorrow!

Day 5 is done for me. I knew it was in the vitals before it hit because I remembered my follow-through—gotta keep aiming.

So 3/5 for me for 2021 CBC. Worst CBC ever for me. That’s what I get for not making time to shoot over the fall/winter. Archery is a perishable skill for me.

Good luck everyone!

That’s a wrap for me as well. I managed to barely sneak my last one in and ended 4/5 at 60yds.

I progressively felt more calm each day, I think I’ll do this exact thing the last few days of August as a sort of cool down exercise before the archery season begins.

Thanks [mention]robby denning [/mention] for being so involved in this, and also giving us something fun but challenging to show us where we can improve our archery setups/skills. Seems like the general takeaway is we all learn a thing or two every year and it only makes us better.

You are welcome brother! If we can become incrementally better bowhunters from this challenge, it’s worth the sweat & tears!

Thanks, I went back and clarified my original post: I did all the practice draws after I'd already screwed up today's shot. Hopefully I was able to reinforce those good habits so that I can avoid them tomorrow!

This was a lot of fun. The windy day got I'm my head a little but tried not to beat myself up too bad as that would never be a shot I'd take in a hunting situation.

Overall went "ok" 60 yards was a stretch for me with my current setup

Ill get him outside here soon to take a shot. We are going to be home the next 7 days with quarantine. I Found out yesterday my wife and I have Covid. I planned on practicing shooting past my MER of 40 while I’m off so it will be easy to get him to take a shot each day.
