Target panic is real, but if you know the right steps to take, overcoming it can be quick and painless.

Whether you are shooting archery or hunting with a firearm, target panic is a real thing, and it happens to even the best shooters at some point.

You point your weapon at your intended target, and then there’s just something that’s not right. The effects are different for everyone, but the result tends to be the same, and then it seems like the harder you try to hit your target the wilder and wilder your shots get. Take a look at the video below for a quick walk-through of just how to overcome target panic.

The biggest thing to overcome is the mental block that you place on yourself. Just go back to the feeling of what feels right and don’t worry about the outcome. Fire a few shots and sooner or later, it will come back to you and you’ll be back to shooting like your old self in no time.
