Default How long are your practice sessions?

I was wondering how long you all practice? I usually start shaking a little at around 25-30 shots. I shoot 3 arrow arounds and can usually shoot 10-15 rounds before the shaking gets to bad to be accurate. How about y'all.

I seem to get into a good zone after about 25-30 shots and then seem to stay there till I have shot around 100 arrows. I would say I practice for a good 50 shots on average, and then I have a walk through course at the club I belong to that has 28 animal paper targets on bags that I shoot from unknown distances to practice both shooting and yardage estimation for 3D.

I usually shoot an hour every other day. I'll usually stop though if I loose concentration.

i generally shoot for about 1-2 hrs before it gets to me,
i start out with 5 arrow rounds,
when it starts getting to me, i go down to 3-4 arrow rounds,
usually shoot 5 rounds of 5's without a problem,
then somewhere from the 5th to 10th round of 5's i start working down,
i am shooting a 60-70# bow set at 60#.

1-2 hours a day and 4-5 hours on saturday and sunday. I get as many shots in as I can. I shoot bags and 3-ds from trees and the ground.

I shoot as long as I'm consistent. When I'm not consistent anymore, I quit.

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