I've done that 3 times already, now when shooting at 20 yrds I only use 3 arrows at a time.

Och!. But a cool och.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Unfortunatly you will!Broken nocks and torn fletching are also very common the better you get.Take a sharpie and make a bunch of dots all over your targets to shoot at.It will save your arrows.Nice shooting by the way.

That is exactly the reason I won't shoot at 20 yds anymore. If I robinhood at 40 yds that is another thing. Too expensive!!

I used to shoot alot of 3D tournaments and "robinhoods" were very common. Especially if you had 5 or more shooter trying to squeeze their arrows into the same "X" rings. Sucked to be the first shooter who puts his arrow in there. Got even worse when I moved up into the Open class shooting with magnified, movable sights, extra long, mutiple stabilizers and very light and fast arrows. Didn't matter if you were shooting 20yds or 60yds-ruined arrows. Some guys didn't want to shoot with me anymore. Remember those days Jawbreaker?

That's what I said when I was using my Nugent Gold Tips to sight in my 50 yard pin than the following weekend we were shooting at a party and I split 2 more 1 from 20 and 1 from 35. I think it is more common than most think because I know it was not my expertise by any means. 10.00 x 1 ouch 10.00 x 3 makes you feel as if you have been violated.
It is what it is.
