This Is How To Shoot Your Arrow Accurately In A Windy Condition

In certain wind conditions, it is recommended that the archer aim outside of the target, first the archer adjusts the shot during the exercise to find out the average state of the wind in general. Then do the scoring, and try not to change/adjust the shots continuously because of the wind. If you do this especially under competition pressure, the archer will be confused. Don’t be confused, but the archer must know where the shot should be done, it’s better for the archer to ignore the shot on the target face, now shoot outside the target face. When aiming outside the target face the eye must stay focused on one point to aim until the arrow sticks to the target. Archers must control their eyes in wind conditions. On the other hand, if you want to be more accurate in using your crossbow to hunt animals in a long-range, perhaps you need to check out some crossbow scope reviews.

There are four important points to shoot in wind conditions:

Eye control.
Maintain the consistency of three angles between the shoulder and chin.
Maintain the timing (accuracy) in wind conditions.

Shooting exercises in wind conditions are very different from training in normal conditions, especially in aiming at the target. In wind conditions, the shot is usually directed out of the target, for example, the shot is directed at the largest number or the color yellow, but the falling arrow is not at the expected number or color yellow. Therefore, the step that must be taken is to shoot based on the clock. If the archer shoots or shoots the number 10 or the color yellow and arrows stick at number 8 at 9 (nine), then the shot must be changed at number 8 at 3 (three).

Many archers do and take aim too long and stiff when in the wind. In such conditions, you should relax so that you still have the confidence that we are able to deal with any conditions in the shooting.
