Lighted Nocks

This insures that the archer keeps the proper location during the shot. There should be no jerking, swinging, or movements that are projecting; all must be done blatantly and evenly.

The shaft should fly in the bowstring like a bird, without quaver or flutter. A sharp resilient launch is depended upon by all.

Having discovered all the prerequisites of good shooting, nothing so ensures a keen, true arrow with lighted nocks flight as an attempt of ultimate tension during the launch. The chest is held stiff in a position of reasonable inspiration, the back muscles are set and every tendon is drawn into elastic pull to be successful, the entire act should be characterized by the extreme vigor.

Lighted Nocks

Game shooting differs from target shooting in that with the latter a point is employed, and the archer fixes his eyes upon this point which is perpendicular above or below the bull’s-eye. The arrow with lighted nocks head is held on the point of aim, and when loosed, flies not along the line of vision, but describes a curve up, descends and strikes not the point but the bull’s-eye.

The field archer should learn to estimate spaces accurately by eye. Pacing measured spans, so that he can tell how many yards any object may be from him should be practiced by him.

In hunting he should make a mental note with this before he shoots. In fact we almost always call the number of yards before we loose the arrow with lighted nocks.

A particular amount is permitted, where there exists a powerful cross wind. But up the lateral deflexion is insignificant; past this it may amount to four or three feet.

In target practice and clout shooting, one must take wind into consideration. In hunting we just consider it when approaching game, as a carrier of odor, because our hunting ranges are nicely under our heavy hunting shafts and a hundred yards tack into the wind with little lateral drift.
