I shoot the same indoors and outdoors because I don't really care about indoors, it's not real archery.
I took up archery when I arrived at Birmingham University in the autumn of 2001, I was initially a good beginner, but then bad mental problems set in which Iíve only recently started to beat, I now shoot ok but I got a rotator cuff injury form my computers mouse of all things three and a half months ago and Iím only just recovering from it now.
(I donít generally distinguish between competition and practice so a lot of these were shot in practice)

Archery seems to me concerned with the three B's Bow, Body and Brain. Most people seem to practice the Body part and they progress just until they meet some mental block, some people fiddle with the Bow part a lot and end up not being able to hit a cowís backside with a banjo.
My attitude is you buy and set up a good bow and largely leave it be, you train your body a few sessions a week so it keeps the physical strength and what you practice harder than anything else is getting your brain to tell your body to do the right things because that's where everybody screws up, your body and bow as long as they meet the basic requirements will shoot tens if told to but as I see it the trick to archery is teaching your brain to tell your body to shoot tens.
If you've involved in uk university archery you might well know me as Mad Jon.
