READY TO HUNT?

HUNTERS: Field Archery Helps Develop Second-Shot Perfection © 2009/By Debra Sieloff

The country Sieloff took the second-shot bear.

You’re covered in camo that’s been washed in the latest scent-eliminating treatment on the market. Your safety harness is strapped to a large oak tree while you inhabit a well-situated and solid tree stand. The view is spectacular and your hunt is feeling like the beginning of a hunter’s fantasy. There’s more. The deer are all around you, and the one you want is just over there. He’s closing in and stops, say about 37 yards. You wonder and start to second guess: “Yes, definitely less than 40.” You think: “It’s no 3-D competition. Grab the rangefinder.” Confirmed: 37 yards.” In this situation, it helps to have confidence making a 37-yard shot with a pin or traditional set-up. The key word: confidence. You may know how to make the shot. Intellectually, a pin shooter’s process includes picking the 40-yard pin and aiming low. The question is: How low? At this point, it’s too late to step aside and get a practice shot in. Worrying about missing ensures a greater likelihood of missing...and have anything less than a moose in front of you, you’re likely to hit dirt with a 40-yard pin set too low. Developing confidence in your pins is addressed in this article. So is shooting multiple distances—as when a miracle occurs and you’re given a second chance, but you have to think fast. The form of archery that lets you test a hunting set-up in multiple shooting situations is NFAA field archery. Field archery can challenge a hunting set-up and help its operator develop accuracy with odd-yardage estimates and multiple shot executions. There are three rounds: field round, hunter round, and animal round. Hunters agree that the “hunter round” in field archery tests every aspect of your pins, shot after shot. There are 14 targets shot during a typical hunter round, but not just 14 distances. Sure, you shoot four arrows per target. Sometimes you shoot all 4 arrows at a single distance. Other targets, there are two distances, and you shoot two arrows at each distance. That’s what we call a walk-up—you shoot two and walk up to shoot the other two. Another form of walk-up is more challenging: four different distances with one arrow shot per distance. By the continued on pg. 6

end of a hunter round, you’ve tested the hunting set-up over and over again. I’ve had game give me two shots, as in the twoshot walk-up, but never four. Like one time I was in Canada black bear hunting and had a “keeper” in at 18 yards. Being in a tree stand, I used a 15 yard pin, and drew back waiting for an ethical shot. All of a sudden, a squirrel of all things, 10 yards directly behind, started an exaggerated scolding directed at the bear. I’ve had aggressive squirrel scold bear out of an area before. However, this bear wheeled around and stood firm—sort of like a showdown against the squirrel. Its legs bowed like a gunslinger in Tombstone. Its head was low between its shoulders, and I could have sworn its lip was snarled up in defiance (just kidding, but you get the picture). Immediately, I took the pin off the bear. Many hunters would try a front shot. I was taught by good-old-dad to be patient and wait for an ethical shot. He’s been hunting bear for 65 years. But there stood that ticked-off bear. All it had to do is look up and see me. When I say that I’d rather 6 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

be lucky than good, this situation applied. I was lucky. The bear looked right below me and out to the squirrel. I held the bow at full draw—up into the woods, and didn’t dare move. Lots of people can hold a bow back for several minutes. In my case, those several minutes felt like hours. I’m used to a shot sequence that includes drawing, anchoring, sighting, shooting, and following through in 10 – 15 seconds. Holding a bow— for me—beyond a few minutes was heading south, fast. Comically, the whole bow got to shaking. I didn’t let the bow down, but during the less than gracious wobble, the lower cam hit the tree stand’s oversized 2-person seat that my dad kindly loaned me so that I’d feel safer in the nosebleed section of the woods. Yep, that wide seat was cool, until this moment. Using a Carter back tension release (which I hunt with the all the time), that bump made the shot go off in the woods. The bear wheeled around and ran from the crash of the arrow rattling in the Canadian

brush behind it. Disappearing in seconds, the beautiful black bear was gone. I normally nock an arrow after shooting. This technically wasn’t shooting. It felt more like a bus collision—not the bump of a cam on a seat. And during the few short minutes I had choice internal conversation with myself regarding that less-than-elegant move, that dumb bear came right back in. There was a second shot opportunity. Seeing black ears above the bracken, an arrow was nocked through auto-response developed from shooting repetitions in practice. When the animal came in, everything except the squirrel was normal. It started up with the noise, again. This time, the bear ignored it. A good broadside position presented itself and there was that second shot at pretty much the same yardage. Ten seconds after the shot came the infamous death moan. That was one example where the NFAA hunter round emulates what can happen out in the woods. Two arrows at nearly the same distance. Here’s another example. Matt Schmitz, also a 5-time NFAA national champion, shoots men’s bowhunter freestyle division. He’s good and has the trophy bowls to back it up. Matt is also an excellent hunter who was on a blacktail deer hunt, hunting a magical buck he’d been watching for years. He even collected the sheds the very same day he finally had a shot opportunity of a lifetime. In a downpour, Matt made his way to his treestand. The rain, hitting all around made for a rough start. It turned around. The skies opened up. “It was as bright at 4:40 as it was at 4:10 when I checked the time.” The buck stepped out at 46 yards away, like a ghost. “When I saw that, it felt like heaven opened up and dropped that buck in my lap.” After my shot, I stalked to 10 yards in the thick brush, the brush is called Salal bush. Very noisy for walking and rain. sounds like plastic getting rained on. In his tree stand, Matt coolly estimated the shot: the choice—a 40-yard pin held on the spine. He drew back. The rain hitting leaves in the tree canopy took away the ability to hear the game. If you’ve hunted, you can relate to how we tend to rely on hearing and sight to calculate our moves. The only thing Matt had to go on was his vi-

thousands of arrows shot with his hunting set-up. Carefully calculated, he shot. Low. The rain soaked everything and changed his marks. You might think: “Hold the pin higher.” That would have been off the deer entirely. I’ve been in a similar hunting situation with world-class elk, and holding off the game is easier said than done. That miss didn’t yield a second shot. In Matt’s case, the odds were in his favor. The buck jumped and stayed in the area. The noise in the trees from the rain covered the surprise of an arrow rattling around the woods. Matt scaled safely out of the tree. With bow and a second arrow all ready. The deer must be somewhere. Rainforest hunting, in the Northwest where Matt hunts, is thick—unlike other areas of the United States in the fall, where the foliage begins to retract, wither, and expose the game. He began his stalk, step-by-step from the tree in the thick brush called Salal brush. It’s noisy—like plastic bubble wrap—when you walk or when rain hits it. Let’s go back to your sight pins. Say you went to the range the week before your hunt, set up a 5-pin system with the arrows and rest you plan to use, and produced dependable 20-, 30-, 40-, 50- and 60-yard settings. What else could you do to prepare like these hunters? Develop the ability to shoot odd yardage using your own pin set-up. Field archery gives you a perfect format and system. First, you get to shoot in all types of woods—from the rainforest of Darrington, Washington (where nationals are sometimes held) to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, where the 2009 NFAA national championships. Second, you can truly develop your ability to shoot odd

yardage—especially during the hunter round. Here are the yardages on an NFAA hunter course:

difference is that you shoot one arrow from 4 different spots, marked in the ground. The marks indicate where you have to stand to shoot the arrow. The 4-position pattern resembles an old-fashioned fan. Hence the name: a fan target. This works when the game moves, but stays in the same range. This sometimes happens. The fan target sounds easy. Well, it is easier than shooting at four different spots from your tree stand. But it’s by no means easier than a walk-up. The fan presents the same target at different angles, positioning, and sometimes lighting or obstacles of some sort. Back to Matt’s hunt. With luck, there would be a second shot opportunity. There was cloud cover and pouring rain. All he had to do was execute a solid shot, with a little more height if the distance was as far as the first shot. Truth be told, his top pin is a 30-yard pin, with the longest setting at 80 yards. The bow weight and speed provides a seemingly flat projection. Matt knows his 30 can substitute for a 20. On top of that, he practices the set-up so that it’s second nature—he’s familiar with every pin and used to ex-

ecuting second shots at different distances, in rapid succession. In this case, that was everything he needed to know. The buck stepped out at 10 yards, angled see “Second Shot Perfection” conclusion on pg. 60

There are two styles of the single distance where all four arrows are shot from that distance: one style you stay in one place and shoot all 4 arrows. That means, in the regular 4-arrow single distance target, all four arrows are shot from the same standing position. This works when you’ve shot from your blind or stand and miss—and the game doesn’t notice. Yeah, dream on. Then, NFAA has a “fan” target. In the fan target, all 4 arrows are shot from the same distance. The ARCHERY MAGAZINE

EASTON Sports Development Foundation Donates $200,000 to Grow Archery and Bowhunting The Easton Sports Development Foundation (ESDF) presented the Archery Trade Association (ATA) with a check for $200,000 to support the group’s efforts to grow archery and bowhunting through the Community Archery Program. The $200,000 gift was presented at the ATA’s board of directors meeting in Minneapolis, Minn., April 21-22. “We understand the importance of not only introducing our sport to others, but also expanding participation opportunities for archery,” said Greg Easton, a director of the Easton Foundations and president of Easton Technical Products, Inc. Mr. Easton also serves on the ATA Board as vice

chair. “The ATA has been effective in developing community-based programs to grow archery and the support from the Easton Foundation will help to expand these efforts.” The goal of ESDF is to promote the sport of archery and develop Olympic hopefuls at a grassroots level and continue these efforts through college and university programs. The organization is also a catalyst in the development of archery as a mainstream sport and promotes growth at the state, regional and national level. “Through generous funding from groups like the Easton Sports Development Foundation, we believe

we can build archery shooting facilities and archery programs that are very much a part of communities around the country,” said Michelle Doerr, the ATA’s director of archery and bowhunting programs. Thanks in part to the ATA’s concept of Community Archery Programs (CAP) and support from groups like ESDF, the ATA expects archery facilities to open in East Lansing, Mich. and Juneau, Alaska this summer. In both areas, the ATA has also worked with state agency to fund and initiate introductory archery programs in the immediate area around the facilities. These on-the-ground archery success stories will showcase how archery can be incorporated into all aspects of the community – schools, recreation programs and facilities. Then, through strong partnerships, resources are combined in collaborative efforts. The Community Archery Program promotes NASP as a key introduction to archery in schools, works to make archery available in local community recreation programs and funds the shooting facilities all archers need to participate in shooting year round. Since 2004, the ATA has provided funding totaling approximately $884,000– including grants provided through CAP – to initiate the National Archery in the Schools program in the United States, Canada and Australia. It has also contributed nearly $960,000 in Community Archery Program grants, equipment and direct aid to state wildlife agencies to grow archery and expand bowhunting opportunities. ■

44 FORM FLAWS—PART III WHEN THINGS GO WRONG Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from Idiot Proof Archery This is the last installment of the 44 most common form flaws. In the first issue, we covered the most common flaws found in Stance, Alignment, and the Bow Hand Grip. In the second issue we covered Anchor and the Bow Arm. Finally, we will cover both the Finger Release and the flaws associated with the Mechanical Release. The assumption will be made that this is a right-handed archer. The opposite will be true for a left-hander. FINGER RELEASE 27. WRIST BENT/TENSE (STRING HAND) If there are muscles used in the wrist or back of the hand as the archer draws to anchor, then as the fingers attempt to release the string, a “sideways torque” or “pluck” is applied to the string (causing excessive string oscillation and therefore, exaggerated arrow paradox). The wrist and the back of the hand should be completely relaxed, expanded in a straight line and in line with the forearm. From the elbow to the back of the hand should be as close to being in a direct line with the arrow as your body’s geometry and range of motion allow. This will produce the least string amplitude and the most consistent release. 28. DEAD RELEASE A shooter with a “dead release” tries to hold whatever ideal position he thinks he has, and then consciously relaxes the fingers in an effort to release while the sight is on the target. This, unfortunately, requires complete control of when the shot goes off and therefore interrupts the aiming process. This technique in slow motion reveals that the string actually moves forward 1⁄2” to 3⁄4”, before coming off the fingers . . . which is actually another form flaw called “creeping” (see #42). This leads to trying to “drop the string” or snapshooting at the exact moment of 16 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

target acquisition, (as the pin touches the bullseye). Because the mind will always know when the fingers are about to “let-go,” anticipation and anxiety build up. Fear of missing then replaces aiming. Plucking, freezing or snapshooting then usually takes over completely. Plucking the string is the equivalent of “punching the trigger” on a release. The dead release requires the impossible (if done without a clicker) . . . thinking two thoughts at once . . . aiming and “let-go.” The opposite and more repeatable, for 99% of us, is a dynamic release, which causes the hand to come straight back automatically, because back tension has pulled the fingers off the string. It subconsciously loses control of, or “refuses to hold,” the string as the hand is being ripped back, to touch the shoulder. Anticipate pulling until you touch your shoulder — commit to conclusion. 29. HOOKS TOO SHALLOW/CUPS STRING HAND/ LIFTS ARROW OFF REST Archers that try to grip the string between the tip of the fingers and the first crease, do so in an effort to have a smoother release. However, the end result is often just the opposite. Because there is no pivot point in the fingers at this location on the fingers, the archer ends up having to cup his hand to maintain control

Dead Release

of the string. This utilizes the muscles and tendons of the fingers and back of the hand. Frequently, a direct result of this is the right-handed archer rolls the string counterclockwise as he starts to draw the bow. They then contact the arrow at the inside of the first joint of the middle finger, lifting the arrow. The combination of “rolling” and “lifting” causes the arrow to slip off the left side of the rest. Also, when the hand is cupped, the middle joints and the knuckles of the fingers are not straight and relaxed, which can crowd the fingers around the nock, causing the arrow to be “pinched” off the rest. The remedy is to hook deeper, in the first crease or midway between the first and second crease of the fingers, so the back of the hand can be flat, relaxed, and not cupped. When an archer comes to full draw, the “V” created by the string angle will naturally “pinch” the fingers together. You should allow the middle finger to have some space (about an 1/8”) below the nock, and the index finger should have the same space above the nock. Or, use a “can’t pinch” type of tab that has a spacer built into it to alleviate pinching the nock. Also using a longer axle-to-axle bow (more than 41”) can help relieve this condition. 30. PLUCKS THE STRING Plucking the string is an exaggerated conscious effort to try and get the fingers out of the way of the string, as opposed to a continuous pulling motion, until the fingers simply lose control from being pulled or ripped backward toward the shoulder. The hand should fly back naturally, in line with the arrow, usually touching the drawing shoulder or the back of the neck, which are the most popular conclusions to the follow-through. When “plucking the string” the archer does not use back tension and, as the “pluck” happens, the fingers come out away from the face, causing excessive string oscillation and exaggerated side-to-side arrow paradox. If the draw elbow drives straight back far enough (because of back tension), the fingers (the index finger or ring finger) should stay close to or, better yet, keep in contact with the face all the way back to the back of the neck or the draw shoulder. THE MECHANICAL RELEASE 31. PUNCHES THE TRIGGER (TRIGGER TOO LIGHT OR TOO MUCH TRAVEL) Punching the release is really a symptom of target panic (which is a mental problem, as are the next three form flaws.) But,

they all have physical manifestations that violate the principles of good form. As far as punching is concerned . . . if the trigger pressure is too light, you are unable to wrap the tip of your index finger around the trigger and start pulling with the elbow using back muscles. Therefore, you can’t get an unanticipated or surprise release or “get into your back muscles” before the release goes off. The same is true of a thumb release set up too light or with too much trigger travel. Most archers who shoot these “fast” releases “pump” the finger up and down on the trigger or try to “touch it off” at the moment the sight is on the target. Even if the trigger is firm, but has too much travel in it, the brain can detect the movement, anticipate it, and therefore try to control it. When “punching,” the conscious mind is trying to monitor both the movement of the finger on the trigger and sight on the target, at the same time. The end result is an addictive and compulsive pattern and habit that forms in an attempt to control the millisecond of “let-go” while in the exact center of the target. Note: If you shoot a standard thumb, index finger, or little finger release, an essential part of the cure for punching (also #32, #33, and #34) is to set up the trigger heavy, with no travel. Many pros use releases that require 4-7 pounds (not ounces!) of pressure to set them off, without any discernible travel in the trigger which helps to keep them from forming these habits! 32. FLINCHES (another symptom of target panic) This is actually the end result of, and an advanced stage of, punching where two conscious thoughts (trigger and target) very nearly occur at exactly the same time, as mentioned in #31. As I just said, the human brain cannot process two conscious thoughts at the same time, but flinching is about as close as you can come. Our minds flash back and forth from the target to the trigger (or release hand). Most of the time, the two thoughts come into the brain separated by a millisecond. But occasionally, both thoughts will try to enter the brain exactly at the same time and the two thoughts “crash” into each other: “Target . . . trigger . . . target . . . trigger . . . target . . . trigger . . . trargertrigget . . .

44 FORM FLAWS—PART III: WHEN THINGS GO WRONG

Freezing Low ously . . . IF one of them is a programmed action on the subconscious level (the release) while the other is a thought or mental picture that remains on the conscious level (aiming). The way to cure flinching is on the empty bale and/or with a bow simulator by developing a correct and trusted shot sequence, so the program to set off the release (or release the string with the fingers), runs on its own, after being started by the conscious mind, but without conscious supervision. Then, all the conscious (thinking) mind has to do is aim . . . until the “program” finishes (subconsciously). 33. FREEZES OFF (OR ON) THE TARGET (another symptom of target panic) This archer cannot move the sight into the middle of the target. He freezes above, to the side or, more commonly, below the aiming spot, and tries to jerk the sight into (or through) the center while attempting to release. The second type is freezing on target. Here the archer cannot release until the sight is moving away from the middle. Remember, you can only release an arrow under three conditions . . . while arriving on target . . . while staying on target . . . or while leaving the target. Again, the way to cure both of these freezing scenarios (also 18 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

June / July 2009

continued

#31, #32 and #34) is on the empty bale or bow simulator and reprogram the shot sequence, as in #32. Then, do a bridge program like the “21Day Program” and/or “Rotational Aiming” so that the archer trusts the new shot sequence. 34. SNAPSHOOTING – DOESN’T SETTLE INTO THE BULLSEYE (You guessed it . . . another symptom of target panic!) Before releasing, the archer cannot settle into anchor and/or cannot let the sight settle into the bullseye and remain there to aim for 3 to 4 seconds. As soon as the archer touches his anchor, the sight touches the center or sometimes even just touches the edge of the target, the string is released, involuntarily. This “shooting on arrival” scenario is caused, once again by trying to “do” two things at once (like #31, #32, and #33) and must be reprogrammed on an empty bale or bow simulator. The real reason target panic is so widespread is that most archers are over-analytical, risk taker, or control type personalities who won’t trust the subconscious to run the “let-go” program, because they have never programmed it correctly. Therefore, they constantly meddle, monitor, judge, analyze, assist, change, and control it with their conscious minds. 35. DROPS THE BOW ARM (QUITS ON THE SHOT) In an effort to see the arrow fly or see where it hits the target, the archer drops his bow arm prematurely . . . one of the major causes of low and low-left arrows (for righties). The cure for this is to keep or hold your position until conclusion. Conclusion, for example, can be seeing the arrow hit the target (which wouldn’t be a good one in this particular case), hearing the arrow hit the target or (the most popular), your hand will come back and touch your shoulder. All these, and any number of other conclusions, happen after the arrow is out of the bow. This will eliminate this type of movement of the bow before the arrow has cleared the rest and riser. 36. HEELS THE BOW UPON RELEASE As the arrow is leaving the bow, the archer tries to “help” a low arrow into the middle by putting a sudden and inordinate amount of pressure or push on the bottom portion of the bow handle, with the heel of the hand. This can cause high arrows and is a conscious effort to move the sight and there-

fore, the arrow . . . as it leaves the bow. Obviously, the archer should relax the bow hand and let the bow shoot “through” the hand toward the target into the sling without “helping it.” 37. PRE-LOADED TORQUE—BOW JUMPS SIDEWAYS This is usually caused by incorrect hand position on the bow handle that puts rotational force (left or right) on the bow. When the shot is released, the bow will immediately twist in the hand and will cause erratic arrows. A consistent hand position on the bow handle should be found (and marked if necessary) so that when the archer shoots, the bow leaves the hand straight towards the target, before it moves left and down (for right-handed archers). 38. PULLS BOW TO THE RIGHT (RIGHT-HANDED ARCHER) This occurs when the archer pulls excessively with the right hand, when trying to equalize the number of pounds at full draw. For example, if John Q. Archer is a “push-puller” or “equalizer,” he should have the same amount of weight or pressure in the right hand as in the left. However, if he pulls harder with his draw hand than he is pushing with his bow hand, or he creeps or collapses with the left hand . . . the right hand will pull the bow to the right, causing right arrows. 39. PUSHES BOW LEFT (RIGHT-HANDED ARCHER) Just the opposite, as in #38, is when the archer pushes harder with the bow hand than he pulls with his string hand (or his anchor will sometimes creep forward because he loses back tension), the bow will be pushed to the left, causing left arrows. For both of these form flaws (if the archer is convinced he should be a push-puller), he should practice equalizing the pressure in both hands. However, if he finds this too difficult, he could use a technique more widely used by top archers. This technique, once at full draw, is to hold the bow statically with the bow hand and pull with the string hand. This is called being a “puller”. Another cause of left arrows is when the bow arm is fully extended (usually the draw is too long!), which will cause the bow to “preload” and “jump” to the left during explosion. Also see #26. continued on pg. 38 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

44 FORM FLAWS—PART III: WHEN THINGS GO WRONG 40. OVER-HOLDS (9-15 SECONDS)/RELEASES WHILE SHAKING This is more typical in better shooters. This is an effort to aim too precisely, or escape letting the bow down. The archer simply says to himself, “I’ll just hold a little longer until the sight picture looks perfect.” He mistakenly thinks the sight has to be in the exact center when the shot goes off, in order to hit the center. Not so, bullseye breath! ) Unfortunately, holding this long usually violates the archer’s personal “comfort zone,” which is the physical “window of opportunity” to shoot at our optimum steadiness, usually about seven to eight seconds after beginning the draw. Normally, when an archer goes past this time frame, the sight picture will rapidly deteriorate. A correct shot sequence should have a definite, timed rhythm. Practice timing your release so it falls within your own comfort zone, or let down if your “time is up!” 41. PEEKING/POPS HEAD UP As in #35, this usually goes hand in hand with dropping the bow arm.

Peeking/pops head up. Frequently, the archer simultaneously pops his head up and drops the bow arm. Peeking is an effort to see the arrow in flight and is one of the causes of low or low-left arrows. The cure for this is to follow-through to conclusion. Practice keeping the bow arm up and the head in the same position, until you reach your conclusion. 42. CREEPING Creeping is losing tension at full draw. The arrow starts moving slowly forward on the rest because the archer is losing tension, either in the bow arm or in the back muscles of the draw arm side, or both, before release. This is solved by a conscious effort (at first) to maintain back tension (until it becomes automatic) and/or using draw stops. For finger shooters with round or soft cams, using a clicker (last resort) or a device that causes round wheels to have a definite “dead stop” wall can eliminate creeping. Another device that will cure creeping and #43 collapsing, is my PanicMaster and Bow Simulator. This is because of the way the laser works on the device at full draw. If you creep or collapse, the laser light will go off prematurely, warning you that you have lost tension so you can correct it immediately. On your bow, you can also install and visually check, two cable alignment marks that come together at the full draw position. These marks should be in the archer’s sight line and ensures the archer maintains the exact same draw . . . sort of a visual draw stop. However, most people forget to

This day was not your average day in the archery shop. This day was special. These archers were not your average shooters. These archers were special. “They’re not your average kids,” said Tim Burnett, owner of Impact Archery and Hoyt pro staff shooter. “They are amazing kids—even beyond that. They have no worries and just have fun all the time.” On the third Saturday in March, Impact Archery in Clovis, Calif. was the spot for more than 25 kids and young adults with special needs and local archers to gather and share in the experience archery provides. This event focused on involving select members from Break The Barriers—an organization that brings together athletes and performers of all abilities. Founded in 1983 by former New York Yankee Steve Hergenrader and his wife, Deby, whose dream was to offer a place to include and instruct athletes like her sister, Kathy, who has Down syndrome. Now, Break The Barriers has members with different physical, neurological and mental disabilities, and intermingles them with people of all abilities. “Everyone has disability and everybody has abil-

ity,” said Steve Hergenrader. “We try to pull out the ability and the best in everyone.” This event matched the members of Break The Barriers with local pros. Highlighted by two-time Paralympics bronze medalist and seven-time World Archery Festival champion Jeff Fabry. Fabry’s accomplishments in the archery world are numerous. But what made him of special interest to the participants is not how well he shoots his bow but the manner in which he shoots it—with his mouth. Fabry’s unique shooting style has evolved because of a passion to compete with archery equipment and an unfortunate accident more than 20 years ago. As a teenager, he was in a horrific motorcycle accident that cost him his right leg and his right arm just below the elbow. Now, in addition to having been all over the world for competitions, Fabry travels to all corners of the United States giving seminars at Paralympic summits and military bases. Although he will teach anyone about archery, many of the people with whom Fabry works are disabled—including veterans.

After being greeted with gift bags, the participants met with several members of the Hoyt pro shooters staff and got a peek at Fabry’s bronze medal from Beijing before heading into the lanes for a quick tutorial on safety and archery techniques. Then, the arrows started flying. With each bow drawn and each arrow loosed, each shooter’s grin grew wider and wider. And after only a few shots, arrows started smacking spots. Loud cheers from Break The Barriers members as they bounced around high-fiving each other touched the instructors in an unexpected way. The day began with the experienced shooters slated to be the teachers. As the day progressed, however, it was obvious that the students had taught the invaluable lessons. “When they hit a bulls-eye they are genuinely excited,” said Josh Binger, a Hoyt pro staffer. “It’s a good thing for us to gain that perspective.” After an hour of shooting, the group gathered to watch one of the world’s elite Paralympic archers in action. Seated in his wheelchair with a large “Team Redneck” sticker plastered firmly across the back,

Fabry carefully knocks the arrow with his left hand before using the same hand to grip the bow’s riser. Leaning forward, he finds the dimpled markings on the nylon tab that have been perfectly molded to fit his molars from thousands of shots. With a slight tug from his neck and the steady extension of his arm, Fabry settles at full draw. Zeroing on the spot, he allows his clenched jaw to relax. Sending the arrow streaming toward the target where it buries deep in the “X” ring. A burst of excitement and applause erupts through the high-ceilinged lanes. The audience has swelled to nearly 50 people, each of whom, regardless of their level of experience or ability in awe of the ease with which Fabry stacks arrows in the spot. But there is no doubt that the kids and young adults, for whom this event was put together, were the most inspired. “Jeff is so amazing,” said Terra Lynch, a wheelchair dancer on the Break The Barriers performance team. “He blew me away.” Lynch, a 21-year-old with cerebral palsy, has been continued on pg. 24

involved with Break The Barriers for more than 15 years where she has traveled internationally with the Break The Barriers traveling performance team on “Ability Awareness Outreach” trips. Over the past several years, Break the Barriers has traveled to Romania, China and South Africa. During these performances, the team entertains and educates audiences with dramatic gymnastic routines. The performing team uses their shows to promote the message about the importance of inclusion—involving all people of all abilities. “We learn so much from the members about not being shy, not being afraid to try,” said Hergenrader. “That’s a major problem with able-bodied people, they are shy; afraid to include.” Break The Barriers involvement with Impact Archery began nearly a year ago with shop shooter and event organizer Mike Hernandez. He wanted to find

a way to involve other organizations and his passion for archery. After contacting Hergenrader, a group of individuals with athletic backgrounds and abilities where chosen to partake in the event. Many of whom have Down syndrome. “They may have a disability but the disability definitely doesn’t have them,” said Hernandez. One participant of the event especially defined that statement. His name is Gary Howery. Barrel-chested, with an upper body like a bodybuilder, the smiling 28-year-old with spina bifida sits erect in his wheelchair as he grips a bow that looks like a match stick in his strong hands. A natural athlete, he combines the perfect amount of strength and finesse as he draws. Straining the limbs of the undersized recurve, he easily supports the weight to take slow and deliberate aim before launching an arrow toward the target. Having set his sights on training for future Paralym-

pics events such as pentathlon, other field events, and now possibly archery, Howery’s focus on competing has never been stronger. Now, he has embraced the Break The Barriers message, offering advice to others in similar situations to overcome their concerns and consider involvement. “Stop being apathetic and get out there and do continued on pg. 26

it,” said Howery. March’s event served as a great way to spread the message Break The Barriers promotes about inclusion. But it also served as a great way to promote the sport of archery. The event exposed dozens of people to an activity that they never before expected they could enjoy. A long-time archer and instructor himself, Tim Burnett values the importance of spreading the sport of

archery and increasing its popularity. A job he takes very seriously. “Everybody wants to be a great shooter,” said Burnett. “But I think being a great ambassador is just as good as being a great shooter. I don’t believe you have to be the greatest archer in the world, if you can be a great inspiration to one person, it makes your whole day.” ■

Those shooting only NFAA will shoot 2 days under IFAA rules with NFAA legal equipment. Where IFAA and NFAA Equipment Rules Differ, those shooting both NFAA and IFAA may shoot two rounds each day, the first using IFAA legal equipment and the second (on a different range) using NFAA legal equipment. Those individuals desiring to shoot a second round each day for NFAA (using different equipment and/or style rules) must register thus so that they can be scheduled for the second round on Saturday and Sunday. Everyone for both events will use IFAA shooting rules. The arrow must cut through the line to score the higher value. Binoculars, spotting scopes and range finders are not allowed. Cameras may be used only after everyone in the group has finished shooting the target. The 3 Arrow IFAA Unmarked Animal Round uses the same scoring and distances as are used in a marked NFAA (paper) Animal Round... the difference is that the stakes are unmarked and the targets are 3-D with scoring sizes proportional to the four distance groups. The “8 Ring” of the animal is the kill and the rest of the animal is a wound. Arrows are marked and scoring is 20-18, 16-14, 12-10 as in a marked round. A perfect 28 target score is 560. The 2 Arrow IFAA 3-D Standard Round uses the same distance parameters. There are two unmarked stakes at every target. All arrows score with 10 – 8 – 5 for each arrow based on 10 ring, 8 ring, and rest of animal. A perfect 28 target score is 560.

7:30PM 8:00PM

The 1 Arrow IFAA 3-D Hunting Round uses the same distance parameters. There is one unmarked stake at every target, and the one arrow scores 20 – 16 – 10 for the arrow based on 10 ring, 8 ring, and rest of animal. A perfect 28 target score is 560.

BHFS and BHFSL—IFAA does not allow a level. IFAA allows a sight with 4 or 5 fixed reference points that shall not be moved during a round. Pin sights are to be of straight stock from point of anchor to sighting points with only one sighting reference possible from each pin or reference point. A vertical line in the sight is not permitted. Hooded pins or scope sights are not permitted. A string peep OR kisser button may be used, but not both. Pin guards may be used provided that the distance between the bottom of the top guard and the top pin must be greater than the distance between the top pin and the next highest pin... same to the bottom guard.

All targets for both the IFAA Rounds and the NFAA 3D will be 3D targets at unmarked distances.

ompeting at an indoor target tournament, one of my students performed well, with the exception of two shots. When I asked him if he ran his mental program on every arrow, he replied, “Yes.” His buddy who was standing beside us remarked, “He may have been running his program, but he was flipping the channels.” At that moment, the true problem came to light. The archer’s concentration was broken by something that was going on behind the line. Instead of letting down and starting over, he continued with the shot. Unfortunately, the results were reflected in his score. To produce consistent, tight groups, every arrow must be shot identically. When concentration breaks down, a variation in form often occurs and the arrow will not hit in the same location. I believe an archer’s primary focus should be on executing a shot with perfect form, which then allows every arrow to hit where the sight is placed. Permitting the pin to hold on or float around the desired impact point allows the arrow to reach its mark. Conversely, if ones

concentration is directed at holding the pin on the bulls-eye, form is more apt to change and inconsistent results at the target are guaranteed. Most shots are missed because the archer had a breakdown in normal execution and form. Rarely is it because the pin was not on the target. This is why you must concentrate and direct yourself through the shot process. The classic complaint from archers is that they do not perform as well in tournaments as they do in practice. Why not? There isn’t any pressure during practice, so they do not force themselves to focus on making perfect shots. They are relaxed and naturally produce the same shot. However, during tournament situations, the muscles tighten up and execute a different form. The mind is going in ten different directions; so the attention on proper form is lost. Concentration is learned on the practice field and practiced on the tournament field. Competitions are the only place to truly test your ability to focus. The more opportunities an archer has to practice concentration techniques in tournament play,

the better he or she will become. Even on the practice field, every shot that is executed should be done with the same amount of focus and intensity as would be required in competition. If you do not follow the same format in practice, you cannot expect to follow it in a tournament. When I observe my students shoot, I rarely watch the arrow fly to the target. Instead, I note the form that launched the arrow. Most of the time, I can tell continued on pg. 62

Glen was less than a day’s drive from Columbus, and since the Finger Lakes Region was a popular vacation destination, our 1969 family vacation plans became cast in concrete. You need to remember that there were just three styles of shooting in those days: Barebow, Freestyle (sights) and Bowhunter (aka Heavy Tackle). Of course, everyone shot with their fingers. We were still shooting the old, “5-3,” target face, where the 5-ring was exactly one-half the diameter of the outside, 3-ring. For the 28 Field or Hunter round, 560 was the perfect score. In Barebow, Class A meant that you had shot two scores higher than 400. Class B was two scores between 325 and 400. For the 1969 National Outdoor, I registered in Class B Open Barebow.

It wasn’t the best room for getting a good night’s sleep, but it was dorm-sized, and we had TV! — a luxury not available at most of the other Seneca Lodge accommodations (cabins, A-frames and outlying motel units). Besides, we got to play Jarts outside our room with our neighbors, including Henry and Babe Bitzenburger. On the Sunday before the start of the tournament, we actually toured the entire length of the Watkins Glen State Park. An old Cadillac would shuttle us from the bottom entrance to the top entrance, so we could walk downhill all the way. [Note: The Seneca Lodge, especially its bar, is another story. Someday, I’ll tell it.] To make a long story short, we had a great vacation. Doris and the three girls had fun, and I shot about the best I could in my second year in archery. My five rounds were all in the 380’s or 390’s, and my aggregate total was 1969 — the only shooter in the 1969 National

2009 MID-ATLANTIC OUTDOOR SECTIONAL June 6-7, 2009 Host: Location: Directions:

Registration: Deadline: Late Registration: Schedule: Accommodations:

MID-ATLANTIC SECTION Mike Le Pera, Councilman brtesite@optonline.net

1 mile from range: 4 miles from range:

Pete and Eva Thompson are 50 year veterans of the Maryland Archery Association and long time members of Mayberry Archers of Westminster, Maryland. You will see their smiling faces at almost ever shoot and they are well loved by ALL. Pete has been president of Mayberry 3 times and “continues” to hold a seat on their Board of Directors. Pete is currently one of their range captains and walks the range at least a couple of time a week, checking out the condition of the range, mowing grass and hanging targets. He is the first and usually the last to leave at any Mayberry tournament. Eva can be found helping with registration or in the kitchen and is “known” for her spice cake with peanut butter icing. Always willing to help new archers, Pete and Eva are presently the Archery Directors for the NRA’s, YHEC and have held this position for about 17 years. The Youth Hunter Education Challenge is held each year and they are always there to help the kids with the archery station, making sure the kids have a great time at the sport they have enjoyed for so many years. On the Maryland Association state level, Pete has held the position of MAA President for two years and MAA Legal Chairman for almost 20 years. “Why”? If you needed to know a rule or an equipment requirement, Pete was the one to ask. He still keeps up on all the by-law changes handed down by the NFAA (National Field Archery Association) our parent organization. Maryland archery’s history is just a question away if you ask Pete or Eva. Barebow shooters from the beginning, they can tell you all the old stories. Like when a state championship held at Creek Waltonian archers drew between three to four hundred shooters, participating at “unmarked” distances and using the original Recurve bows. Pete has only missed one state outdoor championship in MD, which was when he fell off a roof while working and had to have his knee replace. Married for 56 years they were inseparable at a MD weekend shoot, until the last couple of years when Eva developed arthritis in her tab hand. Pete continues to shoot every weekend, counting stitches around the range and STILL winning state tournaments. For those of us in Maryland; a great weekend is; a beautiful day outside shooting in the woods, then after we are done shooting, hearing about the old days in MD archery from Pete, while we eat a piece of peanut butter icing/spice cake from Eva at the concession window. Continued blessings to you, Pete and Eva, Colleen McGowan

The Four Corners area of New Mexico is quite unique in the Southwest. It is full of diverse cultures and people of all races.

I would like to give you a few places to visit while you are here. Just to name a few, these stops are easy to visit on day trips: The Aztec Ruins National Monument, Salmon Ruins, Ship Rock and Chaco Canyon. The land around Farmington is the Traditional Homeland of the Navajo, Jicarilla, Ute and Hopi nations. So come out for a great tournament and stay a few extra days, we would love to have you.

In the show business world, the only bad publicity is no publicity. Happily, that is not the case with archery clubs and archery organizations. Getting free publicity for your archery club is not that difficult. Try these ideas and see if it works for you. In the United States there are only about 1,443 daily newspapers of all sizes circulation-wise. On the other hand, there are several thousands of weekly and bi-weekly newspapers. The daily and weekly newspapers are paid circulated newspapers. Meaning, that if you pay for something you’re more likely to hold onto the newspaper and read it at your leisure. Furthermore, there are thousands of free distributed newspapers often called “shoppers” that are loaded with advertisements. These publications are distributed free and arrive at your home either thrown on your lawn or arrive in the mail. The daily newspapers usually have more news than they can print. Editors decide what news is printed in their publications. The weeklies and shoppers however, often seek out news and they concentrate on local news rather than national news. Most daily newspapers now are morning editions. Most likely, if a newspaper decides to carry your archery news, the news will appear in the sport section. 54 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

SECOND SHOT PERFECTION

44 FORM FLAWS PART III

continued from pg. 9

continued from page 20 away, and in five steps, Matt’s arrow laid it to rest. There’s a pair of two-shot success stories for you hunters contemplating joining a club with a field course or shooting the NFAA field events. As tournament shooters, Matt and I take field archery and apply the skills to those not-so rare cases where you get a second shot. We wanted to share how it can help you know your hunting set-up and develop quick skills to execute that second shot. You, too, could be literally dead on. Try the challenging targets in field archery to test your hunting set-up. It could help improve your accuracy on a hunt, when accuracy really matters. It could turn a dubious hunt into one with magical results. If you’re at a tournament, stop me, introduce yourself, and tell me your hunting success. It may appear in a story. ■

CORRECTION In the April/May 2009 issue of Archery, some text was inadvertently omitted from the Vegas article on the bottom of page 7 and the top of page 8. The missing copy, noted in red, is included in the article excerpt below. We apologize for the error.

Homework in the woods: The Schmitz blacktail buck in 2006 taken with a Cuddeback camera, was awesome even years before Schmitz successfully harvested it as a fully mature animal.

Rick Stark passed Teddy Kibel, 582 to 581, to lead the Barebow Division, while Lynn Hoch and Bill Hakl, each with a fine 599, lead the Championship Bowhunter Freestyle Division. Jeff Human, Troy Knowl and Steve Wagner were close behind with 598’s. In the Championship Female Freestyle Limited Recurve Division, Khatuna Lorig moved ahead of Aida Roman, 575 to 572, while Jennifer Nichols was one point farther back with a 571. In men’s Recurve, Brady Ellison’s 590 increased his lead to five points. Ashley Butler and Patricia Copley, tied with 592’s, led the Female Crossbow shooters, while William Pimm led the men with a 586. Although Cody Thompson remained perfect in the Freestyle Flights Division, eight others with 599’s were on his heels. Round Three, Sunday, February 8th The highlight of the WAF Vegas Shoot has always been the crowd-pleasing way of breaking ties. While X-count is used to determine the order of finish in the non-championship divisions and flights, all

continuously check them. (If none of the above work, you might switch to a bow with a “hard wall.”) 43. COLLAPSING Collapsing is done upon release. This is different from creeping, which happens before release. Collapsing, with the bow arm “giving up” (relaxing prematurely), or the release hand going forward with the string upon release (or both), can cause all sorts of erratic shots. Again, as in #42, a conscious effort must be made (until it’s programmed) to maintain back tension, or you can use draw stops, cable marks, my bow simulator or a clicker for finger shooters. 44. NOT LETTING DOWN This is very common in most archers and separates the champions from the near champions. Most good tournament archers will let down about one out of every five to ten times under normal circumstances. Not letting down is a “control” problem. Most archers don’t want to admit (even to themselves) that they ever need to start over. You need to train yourself

that if anything feels wrong with the shot, or anything enters your mind besides aiming after you start your “motor” . . . let down! Isn’t it a little arrogant for those of us that refuse to let down to think we “do it better” than the best shooters in the world? They all let down, when it “feels wrong!” Champions don’t gamble . . . they only shoot the good ones! That’s one of the reasons why they are champions! I’m sure there are many more form flaws that you and I could come up with, but these are the most common ones I’ve come across in most archers. Hopefully these will help you recognize and eventually eliminate them in your own shooting form and those archers you may teach. If you believe “Practice makes perfect,” then, if you’ve been practicing some of the above flaws long enough, you’ve probably got them down perfectly wrong! So remember, practice doesn’t make perfect ... perfect practice makes perfect! ■

UNMARKED 3D CHAMPIONSHIP continued from pg. 29 Longbow and Historic Bow Divisions—The Longbow Division requires wood arrows. Both these divisions are more limited than the NFAA Traditional Division (that equates to Bowhunter Recurve in IFAA). Archers registering for both events may want to shoot Longbow or Historic Bow in IFAA and shoot different equipment for the second round to shoot Traditional in NFAA. Freestyle Limited Recurve—IFAA allows the same added equipment in recurve as in compound. Barebow—IFAA allows the same rules for both Recurve Barebow and Compound Barebow Divisions. ■

VANES

For maximum stability and head-turning accuracy, nothing spins a broadheadtipped arrow faster than QuikSpin vanes from N.A.P. QuikSpin’s revolutionary patented “kicker” rotates arrows up to 300% faster than feather helicals. And Standard Vane faster spin means tighter groups and better accuracy. Durable, all-weather reliable and easy to apply with any standard fletching machine in straight, offset right or right helical fletch.

Championship Division shooters tied for first, second or third place after ninety arrows, not considering X-count, must face an end-by-end shoot-off in front of a very large and boisterous audience. Thanks again to the Easton Sports Development Foundation, the spectators this year got a great view of nearly every shot during the shoot-offs. With two powerful TV cameras capable of zooming in very close, anyone who looked at the real-time display on those big-screen monitors, seemed to know “who’s still standing” even before the line judges got to the targets. ■

FOCUS ON FORM

you where the arrow is going to hit. How? If the archer has made a variation in form, it will drastically affect the shot. Place a video camera on a tripod and film yourself. As you watch the video, observe if you are doing everything in the same manner. Does your release hand finish in the same position? Is your bow arm following an identical path? Is the rhythm or amount of time required the same? If the answers were not a resounding “yes,” then you need to work on your form. Consistency in form produces consistency in arrow groups. The key to a winning performance is to remain focused on form. ■
