I think you read TopCamp wrong.

Sounds like you need to start your own shooting message board where you can control everything on it, including your shot.

In regards to Tom I think he knows what it takes to make a good shot and execute it as well and I also think that consistancy and repeatable form are the foundations of all good shooting without either one your simply pissing in the wind. I have seen some lucky shooters and some great ones and consistancy is the difrence between the two.

Tom, I guess you can lead them to water, but you can't make them drink

If you start your own forum on shooting count me in I care a helluva a lot more about where the arrow goes than most and would be glad to be a part of it I know my shot execution dosen't change just cause I am standing in the trees and elk are bugling or wether I am standing on the lne shooting a 300 round a good shot is a good shot

This "Good Shot" thread seems to be getting to be a "my way or highway" kinda thing...think I'll take the highway... and watch from the side of the road :twisted:

I'm sorry you feel that way Roger, particularly since it was your last post that really seemed to clarify the matter of "hunting -target form". I'm certainly not interrested in changing anyone's shooting that is content with what they have. Like the saying goes, "Everyone's got an opinion. Their like a_ _h_ _ _ s, everybody's got one and most of em stink." All I'm trying to do with this thread is to keep it related to shooting and not opinion...and do that with logical argument/discussion. I was under the impression, as I started this thread, (I)was responsible for keeping it on target. If this thread lasts any longer, I'll simply respond to questions of a shooting nature....and ignore all else. I have received "PM's" on shooting matters and will continue to respond to them.

It took a my way or the highway turn quite a bit ago. Tom, I don't think you were asked to leave other boards because of the information you are presenting, because it is obviously good, I think you were asked to leave because of your attitude.

wow, I can read this kind of crap over on the leatherwall. If I went to an archery coach to get some help on my shooting form, I would expect that coach to say "this is how I do it, do it like this". I wouldn't insult him and start a dumbass pissing contest over it. I don't remember reading once where Tom stated that one style is superior to another but that consistancy was the key and that certain practice routines done in a specific way will help train an archer to stay consistant. If I remember correctly, Tom was asked to do this.

I'm sorry you read it that way HANK. I suspect that much of this could be avoided with better communication skills....from both sides. As for being asked to leave "boards", that's simply untrue. I left TG because a fellow named "JC"(and close friend of the site owner) stated that (as best I can quote) "Formal instruction wasn't necessary. By shooting a lot, an archer will achieve his potential."... I thoroughly disagreed with that and said," Practice DOES NOT make perfect. Perfect practice does. 10 arrows executed perfectly are far superior to 10,000 of ANY other kind."...and for that I was emailed and suggested I keep my opinions to myself...which I most happily did... By the way, have you seen how successfully the "Shooters forum" has survived there at TG?...It's now closed. :shock: :oops: :lol:

From MY view, the very few that have turned this thread into something it was never intended to be can have their way with it. It's yours now.

Anyone interrested in discussing their individual shooting is more than welcome to PM or email me. I'll respond to all.

Exactly!

For some people what JC does works. On the other hand, I have guys that tell me they just need to shoot more arrows and I know for them, that probably isn't the case. I personally know and have shot with guys on a 3D course that are average at best, but always have a full freezer after hunting season... what ever they are doing when hunting, they always get that arrow where it needs to be.

We are all wired different.

It's definitely difficult to get one's thoughts across accurately on the internet....I've deleted more of my own replies/posts because, after rereading my own post, it sounded stupid as hell!!
We also have to understanding that all of us are "wired" different...some words "trigger" different meanings to each of us, and can be so easily misunderstood..
Also hard for someone to coach or instruct someone when they can't see them in person..you can only hope they are doing correctly what you are asking them to do..and then, only if they accurately understand that although we are all different, certain things done accurately...one chunk at a time and then blended into a cohesive, fluid motion..will produce the best results for MOST people...but not all..
The tough part is that we are all at various stages within our learning process...we all keep trying the little "tips" and "tricks" to improve..most are probably content with their basic overall shooting abilities but would like to bring it to the next level...
We all have to remember that a good shot is a good shot...whether it's hunting or target..and I think the only things different are the slight idiosyncracies we each put it to it..
Just my thoughts..think I will just stand by the roadside and read and pick out what "may" help me get to my goals..and stay silent the rest of the time...
