I go till I either feel like stopping or the shaking starts to get bad whichever comes first.

For you guys that say that you shoot 4-6 hours I don't understand how you do it. It takes 30 minutes to shoot 25-30 arrows, with the walking back and forth and pulling arrows, so that would be 240-360 arrows per practice session. How can you shoot that much and stay consistant? I know that I can't.

About an hour and I quit counting arrows and started counting tens and twelves. If I start with a five I put it down and wait for the next day.

Usually a couple of hours... If I'm walking the 3D course, I'll probably leisurely shoot for a half hour or so before starting.

Unless I am setting up or trying something out, I'll shoot anywhere from 1-2 arrows to maybe 2 dozen.
