Man, his release sucks! :lol: Seems to work good for him though. That's a fast damn bow too.

I have heard alot of good things about RW. To me he looked like he was overthinking the shot. We have all had bad days, too bad somebody videoed his and posted it. Anyway, I'll bet another day he could walk out there and just nail every target. We all have those days.

I hear you are a fair shot yourself.

He evidently had a rough weekend at the Trad Worlds where that was filmed. I don't know where he finished up but one of our local guys was squaded up with him the first day. This guys is an above average shot but not unbeatable, even at our local shoots. Anyway, he called me the night after the first day of shooting and he was 7 or 9 points ahead of Welch at the end of the day. Said Welch was struggling some. Like I said, I don't know where Welch finished up but our local guy finished 17th overall for the weekend I believe.
You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.

Ouch! Looks like a total collapse to me. I can relate to that for sure. I hope it doesn’t cause him long-term trouble.

I have seen footage of him from previous years shooting like that. I don't get it.
