Default arrow grouping

Ok so I just got a new bowtech tribute and was wounder how close I should be able to shoot the arrows together. I have decent form and have been geting like with in 3in of each other every time at 20yards. What should I do to tighten up my group. Also how do you guys practice I want to know like everything that could make me into a really good shooter.

Ever heard the saying, "Aim small miss small"? It's one of myfavorites.I buy those 1" orange circles and use those for my targets. Also, pulling too much weight back will make your accuracy suffer. There are others but those two come to mind first.

Also, don't be your own judge as far as the form issue goes. If you can, post a pic on here of you shooting and let some of these guys critique you.

With a little practice you should be able to do better than that. This is a 40 yd group that i shot yesterday.

Pictures would be great and video of multiple shots would be better.

Hey taylor nice shooting,but can you group like that without a dot to shoot at,like on a 3-d target by picking a spot just like a real hunting situation.that is the key to being able to make those shots on a live deer is picking a spot when there is no spot on your target.I believe this is the main reason people miss or make bad shots.

I agree. I did some fine tuning this weekend to my bow and shot at 40 yds and shot my broadheads at 40 yds also. When i shot that group i had to take a picture. Hopefully this weekend i can report back with a pic of my arrow in a deer.

treboryerf, i use to shoot 3d tournaments and i agree, its harder to shoot an unknown distance at an animal.

I read a post here on huntingnet the other day and it basically said that when trying to judge grouping sizes to use a 10 to 1 ratio. For every 10 yards, you should be grouping arrows in a 1 inch circle. So, for 30 yards a 3 inch circle or for 40 yards a 4 inch circle.

Work on your Form , don't torque the bow by gripping to hard . Relax and follow your shot through .
