New Season Tune Up Part 1

 

I started a list of the stuff I am working on and realized that is going to more than one video!  Make sure that you stay for the funny bits at the end.  🙂

 

Shoot straight!

Tournament Round Up

So much going on the last couple of weeks!  I know that things are about to get super crazy so I wanted to make sure to post the past two events since I missed doing that do to traveling!

At JOAD Nationals in Snellville, GA I was glad to be there because I got to meet new people.  The first day I was so excited to shoot; I was ready and pumped up.  I found myself doing the right things and going through my process and in the correct timing more than previous shoots.  I was able to self-coach as well.  Both days this happened and I was proud of myself for reaching this point.  I didn’t shoot the highest score at this location (I think I was second) but I had so much fun!

At State Indoor/NFAA Sectionals in Gainesville, FL I was excited to go shoot with my team and meat more people!  As I was shooting I realized I was going to fast and I had to slow down.  When I did, I shot very well.  I met new people and had a lot of fun!  Guess what?  I also broke 1000!  FINALLY MY SCORE IS GOING BACK UP AFTER BEING BROKEN DOWN LAST YEAR! It was only by five points but STILL, it made me really happy.

Video Blog 1

Shout out to the most awesome JDT coach @archerwatson and as you can see by the blog, I am SUPER EXCITED about getting to work with her for a week.

Mom was laughing so hard when she was making this video that she started crying.  I wasn’t trying to be funny really but I did have her put a gag reel at the back of some of the things she cut out.  I guess next time, I need to write a script but HEY I am only 12!

I hope you like it.

The Shot Cycle

Hey guys!  Mom had to do another video project for class so we decided to try to break down the shot cycle for those of you who have been asking.  Hopefully you find something useful in it and can use it when practicing your band work or shooting, just rewind as many times as you need to (that’s the great thing about YouTube!).

Unfortunately for me, my coach returned from a new NTS module where the shot cycle has been further refined so that means learning the changes and new form again.  Once I get back from JDT camp in January and have a chance to understand where those subtle changes would affect the video, I will post an update to it for you.

Happy shooting!

Black Hills, here I come!

This is the coolest 3D target I have shot so far!

On July 21 & 22, I shot the State 3D tournament and it was really fun!  It was nice to meet other people who I hadn’t met before.  What was really cool is the course was set up at the Crazy Horse Memorial, so target #9 was right in front of the best view of it.  When I was shooting there was a group with longbow shooters behind me that were really loud and funny.  The reason they were so funny is that when they got a bad shot, they would just throw their bow.  If they got a good shot, they would yell “FOAM IS MY FRIEND!” because the targets were made out of a special foam.  It was a really enjoyable experience and I would love to do it again!

Me, my step-dad, Matt and Trent…Trent had no idea we were being so goofy at the time!
