    Sight markings

    First tournament being shot next weekend; I keep my sight marking saved on my phone; is it okay to refer to a mobile when shooting?

    Yeah, if you really want to hold up the group behind you while you mess about...
    Get a grip.. it's supposed to be fun.
    I thought you'd moved from target to escape some of that nonsense...?

    Print a sight tape and stick it to your sight track. Not rocket science. Leave your phone in the car. People with phones on a field course are really annoying.

    Or make a paper copy of the phone's sight marks and stick the paper in your quiver.

    Absolutely, put a tape on your bow graduated in 5m steps. I followed a group of four compounds on a field course recently, they shot nearly as quickly as my four tradbow group because they all had their sight tapes.

    Errrmm, did you get out of the wrong side of bed or something? It was a simple question and I never hold up the group; quite the opposite.

    Luckily there are some rather less grumpy replies. Thanks guys; TBH I’ll probably remember them all anyway, having thought about it but I’ll print out a little sheet just in case.

    We’ve both been practising in the garden after a surf together; all good.
