Hurt your ring......you must be doing something wrong !!!!!
It can at times become a little windy on the field but normally it is fairly calm....and we are shooting in April not July.
Peter mentioned to not think about the wind and concentrate on the shot...I forgot to do that on a good few occasions hence the many misses I had at 100 yards but still enjoyed it through slightly gritted teeth....I now know that I was over drawing on a few as I am trying a different draw and I think I pushed the bowhand too far before drawing.
Learning curve for me at 100 as it is for you at 50/60 and there are many schools of thought that say shoot at a distance until you can get them all in the blue and then work up whereas others say just go and do it.....I feel working at lower distances is a good thing as you don't want to get disillusioned at the longer distances & you can work on your form.....but some take to it like a duck to water.
