Hey all,I hear ya rebstud,I am in the same boat! Just last Friday,I was shooting well (by my standards anyway!) at 25-30yds. A few days later,well,…not so good!I think several things: First,I need to concentrate on realistic (again,for me!) hunting distances. Second,I find when I am relaxed,I can focus better,and HIT better. Third: Diet..Not eating breakfast or lunch,and too much coffee and cigarettes..big no,no for me. I’ve seen just how bad it can effect me when shooting a handgun or rifle..scores plummet. It boils down to:I can shoot as good as i can concentrate and not OVERTHINK the shot. When I start to “guess” and try to overthink the shot…well,I think you know what happens. These are just some points I feel work for me,and maybe for you. Good luck and good shooting,Lee
