Learn How to Hit the Center at Long Distances

A mistake many archers make is trying to aim at the same size dot at longer distances that they do at shorter distances. An aiming dot that you may be able to see with your pin at shorter distances will more than likely be covered up by your sight pin at longer distances. This can end up creating a lot of anxiety, and more than likely, cause you to hit low as you try to keep peeking at the aiming dot to make sure it’s still there.

Instead of aiming at the same dot that you would at shorter distances, visualize that area expanding on all sides. This will open up that aiming area to a much larger area letting you focus on allowing your pin float within that area. Now, rather than the anxiety that comes from trying to aim at a dot that your pin is covering up and you can’t see, you are aiming at a much larger, more comfortable area to manage with your sight pin. As you pull through your shot and the shot breaks, it will more than likely land in the center of that new area you created in your mind, which ultimately is where the smaller dot is sitting.

Next time you are shooting distance practice this technique. You will learn that aiming big will help you miss small. Good luck!
