      The rules are not specific about that (that I can see) but the real
      object of all of this is to become a better archer. Toward that end I
      say shoot the full set of ten every time.

      If you are missing now and again, your skill needs work, work on it. The
      test in this shoot is whether you can intentionally put ten consecutive
      arrows where you want them.

      If you were to just start over every time you missed too many to improve
      your score, part of what you were testing would be your luck instead of
      your skill.

      Aut inveniam viam aut faciam.
