3 Practice Tips

Learn three tips on practicing archery from the pros at Queens Archery in this Howcast video.


A tip for practicing. Again, start close. Start up close to the target. Practice is exercise with a bow. You're shooting an arrow during a practice session to keep it interesting, but basically, all it is is exercise. What you want to do is try to be consistent. Try to do the same thing every time. It doesn't matter whether you're hitting the bulls eye or not. That's not what you're practicing for. What you're practicing for is to shoot every arrow the same way every time. That is impossible. You cannot do it, but that shouldn't stop you from trying. Because the more you try, the closer you will get to perfection.

Remember, perfection is impossible to obtain, but you'll spend your whole life in archery trying to attain it. So, practice as much as you possibly can. Practice shooting from different distances. As you improve your accuracy, move back to challenge yourself. Eventually, you could move back as far as 100 yards in a legitimate distance for shooting target shooting. That's what they shoot in the Olympics. 90 meters, which is almost 100 yards. Imagine being accurate and consistent at that distance. A lot of people are. They are amazing and the reason they become amazing was because of practicing. There is no getting away from it.
