Shooting short is usually a gimme’ after shooting longer ranges; the worst problem is focus and that can be overcome with practice. You will easily adapt to the short shot, even after coming off an 80 yard target, if you are paying attention to your form and focusing on your shot. It’s all between the ears. Really. 🙂

Shooting the field rounds of the 60’s and 70’s made me a much better shooter at all ranges. You learn to shoot the close targets effectively because that is where you build up your score on a field or hunter round. If you only shoot close distances you are not allowing yourself the complete enjoyment of a archery….watching arrows fly into the distance. It is good….Grasshopper. 😀
