Default Bad shots are expensive, huh?

I finally broke out my climber and went up 20 feet to do some practicing with the Montana, shooting at my 3D target. I was quite pleased out to 17 yards, but at 20 I missed, and due to the angle hit the wood frame with a glancing shot. All in all, I thought I did quite well, even though it did cost me one of my POC shafts. I'll say one thing though.... a 10 yard shot at 20 feet up is difficult to pull off with a 64" longbow.

I just read what I wrote and realized that some of you may wonder what the heck I was talking about when I said that I missed and hit the wooden frame. My only 3D target is rigged to mount right in front of my Outdoor Range Target on my ghetto-redneck mobile target platform as shown. I missed low left and at that angle, hit the 2x4.[:@]
