    Default Once again Piet Skiet makes a lot of sense.

    On sunday Piet was explaining the importance of focusing on the crosshairand not the target. Pretty obvious you might say, and of course everyone does it!

    Not so, especially in my case, and many others I would imagine. I tried shooting as per normal and found myself focusing on the kill zone and when the sight moved into the kill zone it was time to let off the shot.

    I'm now doing it the other way round and found this is the only way to be able to call your shots.

    Weather this will improve my shooting, only time will tell. But I can definately call my shot as it's fired, which normally goes something like this; missed at 3 o'clock, missed at 6 o'clock, missed at......well you get the picture!

    Thank's Mac, try it, and I guarantee your score will improve. Just remember, any new technique takes time to be imprinted on your mind, and muscle memory to be built.

    At my age new techniques take more than time.

    I shoot longbow and was trying to tune my arrows as no one in my family new what to look for in the arrow flight. So what I did was shoot the bow and quickly lower it to see the flight. To get out of the habit of dropping the bow after the shot took about 3 months.

    This just seems to show how quick we can pick up bad habits, but to get rid of them is an absolute nightmare.

    I can tell you this method of yours is showing visible improvements, and at not a bad pace either.

    Are you the same Piet Skiet selling the compound on the bowhunting forum?

    You just need to get in the right frame of mind I would call mine like this "HIT something else at 3 o'clock, HIT something else at 6 o'clock, HIT someth... " Now you must admit at least it sounds a lot better

    It's like that saying; is it better to nearly hit something or nearly miss something?
