I get more messages and questions on this subject than any other. People always want to know how a pro practices, what their mental game is and how to handle nerves. I can personally tell you that I shot more than I ever have this past season, but it turned out to be the longest and worst year that I have had as a pro. Due to this, it was an extremely mentally draining year and my confidence suffered. Notice that I said that I shot more and not that I practiced more. There is a HUGE difference between shooting and practicing. Your mental game isn’t only something that you use in tournaments; it is also something that you use in practice.

I’m not even going to lie to you. This past season when I went to Seven Springs for the OPA shoot I was riding that struggle bus hard. After I had moved to Texas last September, I started going out all of the time and neglected the gym. Coming off a good year in 2017 when I only left the top 10 twice, and made a few shoot downs, I let myself go physically whereas I had been going to the gym three times a week before I moved. I was extremely out of shape, and that not only affected my physical capabilities with shooting, but it also made it to where I was on more of a mental grind to get through a round.

He, like many others, have tags to fill. So how does he transition from one season to the next? Here are some great tips from the man himself.
Archery has been a passion of mine since I was 13 years old. Many know me as a competitive target shooter, but I began my journey into archery with my dad as a way to spend more time in the woods during hunting season. My father bought me a beginner bow setup not knowing how long I would stay interested. My first fall in the stand was a very memorable one and helped push me toward the tournament side of archery.

There’s something special about walking for miles and long hours to finally feel the gratification of laying claim to a shed. While it’s a fun pastime for some, for others it is a means of income or a prime opportunity to practice some quality deer management.
