I like to shoot w/ my son this yr between us we have 4 most likely not cause we are primo archers but sure numbers of arrows in one target sooner or later it will happen if you shoot enough. I display them on the garage wall count is up to 9 over the past 3 yrs. We shoot probably 100 arrows a day so like I said not usually skill but dumb (expensive) luck

Default Robin Hood

I have "robin hooded" twice in my life. Funny thing is, both times was at the indoor range at the bow shop when I was buying the only two bows I've ever purchased. I was shooting, getting the bows set up.
First one was 10 years ago with aluminum arrows. Second one was last summer with carbon. Same shop, same guy (owner)....
There was another guy there talking to us when the owner commented that the last time I bought a bow from him, I had robin hooded while they were setting me up, and that was the first time that had ever happened in the shop before.
3 shots later ........TWACK!!!!
He just looked at me and we both hit the floor laughing!!!!
The other guy's jaw hit the floor and said, "I'll be back Friday when I get paid. I'm buying from YOU!!!"

Default Some learn early

Shooting small groups is ok with bullets; in archery they call small groups robin hoods, that cost some real money.

I never shot more than one arrow at a two inch target

I shoot accurately at a 2' x 2' target, where I can have four target dots.

I always shot less than five arrows at a target. I also did that for the combination shooting practice and exercise. The exercise, back and forth from the target, always helped not becoming a fatso. And that paid money dividends in another way. It also helped having a private range for a lone archer.

The ol Robin Hood Shot. I have done it once before. It's really pretty cool when you do it but it also sucks because the arrow is now garbage.

My dad and I went to shooting only 2 arrows each out to 30 yards, then from 40+ we shoot 4, save a lot of money on fletchings.

If you shoot alot you will do it again, especially packing them in one dot, first one is pretty nifty, after that as someone else said is expensive, great shooting anyways
