arkansas, a buddy of mine and I used to do this game, also we wouldwrite down the guessed and the actual on our score sheet, that way we could find our problem areas and focus on them.

To make it even more interesting, take a wierd object such as a cup or whatever it may be and write on it with a magic marker something to the effect of "yardage judger of the universe" that gets passed to whomever wins that day. You would be surprised how much more you pay attention and take your time when something is on the line. I found that this helped me not just hap hazzardly guess, but make me take my time to think about it.

I shoot ALOT of tournaments and spend more than half my practice time judging yardage. Good luck!!!

That's some good advise. I've seen some marginal shooters (me) do real well at 3D because they were excellent yardage estimators. Knowing the distance to the target is more than half the battle.

well all good posts i just wanted to say that this weekend i was practicing some fun spot and stalk on a turkey decoy and i would come in from about 100 yds or so and when the wind would blow the decoy the opposite direction of me i would practice stalking up on it and then i would put my self in a position where i had to shoot in the 30-40 yd range...draw back on him when he wasnt lookin and then when the wind turned him broadside i would release the arrow i think i was about 3 for 5 on the target no really damage to my decoy cuz i have light poundage and i was using one of those varmint stoppers,but all in all good practice very good ways to learn whats the best way to stalk and judge the distance...p.s i only did this cuz i had old arrows that i would use to shoot at rabbits and stuff
