Moi'.......but then, I never stop either. I have a 12 yard range in my basement (20 if I go into the garage), and I have 5 acres that I wander on and shoot Judo points.

I've been shooting for about three weeks in the back yard. I have a 20 yrd range. I shoot my compound 1 to 2 days per week and my stick bow 3 to 4 days per week.

I usually shoot at least twice a day...bout 50 to 100 shot sessions. I'm an old man and have to shoot a lot to keep my former muscles built up..recurve. Be glad when the season gets here...had my second robin hood of the summer today and would rather not waste good arrows like that.

I shoot once a week now for about a half hour, when august comes it will be three times a week..I am trying to increase out to thirty five yards this year...I have and usually will only shoot 25 yards max, but shooting all year round my bow has become a natural instinct...not saying that it never was but after shooting my Martin for the last 6 years I know how it functions...I just had the whole thing fine tuned from strings to replacing every single screw/pin on the thing...after 6 years of horrible weather hunts and so on it was starting to look rough.. she looks like she just came out of a box now..

Since I got the judo points WW mentioned I have been shooting almost every evening and enjoying it a lot more.

I was able to ruffle the feathers on the top of a starling just over 20 yards :D

through the winter I setup a little shooting range in my house, about 14 yards. Now that it is nice out I try to shoot 3 times a week. What are judo points?
