I shoot only enough times to know I am on or I am off. Before third weekend of archery, I took one shot on a 3d target that was excellent from about 25 yards and then stopped entirely because I felt my mojo was working. Next shot was on my buck. I used to shoot a ton but then when I started winging them I would get frustrated, shoot some more, and just get more frustrated. Right handed and my shots definitely start going left and high when tired.

I continue to shoot every day. My groups have proceeded to get smaller and smaller.

One key is to not shoot after you are tired IMO.

I have noticed that since I have only been shooting for the last 5 months or so, I am getting stronger. I am not a super strong guy and I have had impingements in both shoulder when I did physical repetitive work. So Where I would notice hat my groupings would change after 8 or 10 arrows when I stated, I can now shoot many more times prior to being tired.

The other improvement is changing grips. I have a Mathews outback and that old wood grip was awful and seemed to magnify any torque. When I am tired, I notice that he torque is what gets me.
