Keep up the good work and you'll be buying more arrows than you want. No really they are cool to get,I took 20+ yrs. to get mine, but space out your shot placement to save your equipment

used to shoot off more knocks than I cared to and 'robin hooded' (like the 2nd pic) 3 times....I shoot Easton A/C/Cs so losing $24 in two arrows got expensive. I started shooting a multi dot target after that. I doubt I could do it now...at the time I was shooting couple thousand shots a week.

Got mine just the other day. This is technically me second. My first was with my GF's bow at 10yrds.

This one was at 20 with my Ally

I have nocked a lot off this year alone, and I hate it every time I do it. I have yet to robin hood and hope I never do!

If I shoot more than two arrows at any distance less than 35 yards, I start ripping vanes and snapping nocks. I will only shoot more than two arrows at the same target if it is over 35, and even then I wont shoot more than four. Arrows are just too darn expensive.

why over 35 yards? that would be harder to group

^thats the point. he doesnt want to tear his arrows up, so he wont shoot more than 2 arrows at the same spot unless its 35 yards or further.
