While I'm sure many have seen it and even done it before it was a first for me. And while it was cool for all of about 5 seconds it was then not cool as I realized I had an arrow to throw away... but I ended up hanging it in the horns of a mount till I feel like trashing it.

My first... and hopefully last robin hood.

Congrats on your first

See all those other little dots around the big dot in the middle, one arrow at each dot gives you practice without Robinhoods, the first few are cool but then they do get expensive.

Your target will not get shot out as fast either if you spread it around

Haha, never shot more than a time or two at a range when buying a bow. That target is on the edge of my carport and I'm shooting from my front porch

I cant be my cheap old self too much longer. I was down to 4 arrows 2 practice and 2 unfired I hunt with. Wonder if there is much variation from box to box on arrows or if cabelas even still makes these still.

I used to think it was pretty cool at first, until I got tired of buying new arrows, replacing nocks, and having to refletch my arrows, so I started shooting a five spot target when I practiced, and only shot the bullseye when I wanted to show off at the range with everyone watching. roflmao

I saved my first (and only)one. Both arrows are hanging in my garage. So I guess it cost me 2 arrows.

As other have said, it was cool but I don't want to repeat it so it don't shoot at the same spot very often.

The sound it makes is first clue you did something new! The pop of bag target is distinct, the sound of arrow getting hosed is unique! I have maybe 7-8 arrows I have cornholed. It has taken me awhile to accumulate them so not a regular occurance.People keep saying shoot dots, it's rare to do that for most of us none pro types so not going to break the bank trying/doing it. My robinhoods bother folks they are welcome to donate cash and I will quit trying. boxing

They don't bother me but I don't like fletching arrows I seem to ruin more fletching than nocks than the arrows themselves.

Back when I first started shooting a bow, and that was a long, long time ago, when they made shafts from hollow woven fiberglass, (before carbon) and I shot those tight little groups and unknowingly being inexperienced I undoubtedly nicked one of the arrows pretty good.
I drew back and released the string and heard a loud crack and saw something fly skyward. I was looking up at a piece of my arrow flying overhead and my brother who was shooting with me said "look at your hand."
I looked down at my hand holding the bow and there was about six inches of shaft sticking out at the base of my thumb.
It was pretty much numb until I pulled the shaft out and then the fun began.
I still bare the scar to this day 47 years later, but I still get a little shy shooting my semi tight groups with carbon arrows, although I think they would be a little more durable, but I'm not willing to take that chance.
Lesson learned,....check your equipment before you practice and especially the arrows.

^^^Yup

I have messed up carbon arrows shooting 3d targets when the arrows hit each other but did not robinhood. A cracked or splintered arrow is dangerous.

People ask me all the time why I still use aluminum. I know people that work in emergency rooms and have seen pics of what a splintered arrow can do. NO THANKS!!!
