I've been doing this for the last 2 years as a way to get ready for hunting with my crossbow. I don't have a lot of people who I can shoot with so I play this game with myself: I shoot 5 shots off-hand from different yardages, 35yds, 15yds, 30yds, 20yds, and 25yds. Then I shoot those 5 again for a total of 10 shots per round. I have a bag target and I put a small stick in the target that I use as an aiming point. I usually shoot just 1 round per day but sometimes 2. In this game, anything within 4.5" of the stick is a killing shot (or a 9" diameter circle) and anything outside of that is a point (of course you want a zero score). I keep track of my score on a chart. The last 2 years I have used the same bolt for the entire 1,000 shots and then I used that same bolt to shoot a mule deer buck, both times the deer broke the bolt off after falling on it, but I guess 1001 shots is enough for 1 bolt. Shooting this many shots has really gotten me used to my crossbow and has given my a lot of confidence in my ability with it. Does anyone want to join me this year in the 1,000 shot challenge?
