Making the Shot: 79 Yards, High Winds, Tough Lighting

Making the Shot- Small target, long yardage with high winds, variable lighting & poor footing. The bottom line is shooting in the wind can be downright stressful. Add an element of tough lighting conditions and you've got Mother Nature's 1, 2 punch to any archer. In this video pro archer, John Dudley, walks you through one of his favorite technical shots from the tough Nock On Course at the Total Archery Challenge in TX, a 79 yard ram across a creek with high winds and tough lighting conditions. Here’s how to do it perfectly!

Critical Archery Tips for Success in the Hills

Shooting in hills or mountains can create a lot of challenges for archers and bowhunters. For many, these challenges are unknown or misunderstood. Every target placed on the Nock On Courses at the Total Archery Challenge events serve a purpose for learning and developing archery skills. They are technically challenging and you must think them through in order to be on point. It’s not just about making the shot, it’s taking the opportunity to think through the shot, then make it happen successfully. It’s a chess board with pieces set to bait you into a mistake. Here’s a video from John Dudley of Nock On Archery providing tips to making the perfect shot on the slopes. Make no mistake about it, these details separate the successful archers and bowhunters from the unsuccessful. If you’re watching this video and haven’t watched the video series “ARC FLAWS” be sure to check them out. In the meantime, here is how to make the perfect shot on the slopes.

Making the Shot: High Winds & Long Distance

Shooting archery in high winds can be some of the most stressful shooting conditions to shoot in. Combine a long distance target with the high winds, and you've got one of the most difficult archery scenarios. In this segment of Making the Shot, John Dudley of Nock On Archery demonstrates the perfect execution of managing this particular shot scenario while shooting a 101 yard bedded ram with a serious crosswind. Not only does the ram blend into the rocky backdrop, you also have to manage your pin covering the entire target at that long of a distance. Dudley will teach you the importance of properly managing your front sight/rear sight and what it means to check your 6 and 3 when looking through your peep. He will also teach you how to compensate for arrow drift in the wind and how to stay committed to your shot sequence through the gusty wind. These are all valuable lessons when it comes time for you to make your shot in similar conditions.
