Glad to see you back. Maybe you need to learn from the rest of us old folks. You don't need to shoot 70# any more. 60# or so will take care of things the size of elk and moose and won't tear your body apart in the process of preapring for the hunt.

nice to hear you're getting back up and around! Shooting is great therapy, IMO, but like the others are saying, you should drop the weight down a bit and ease back into it. I know just after taking a bit of the winter off after hunting season, I could feel it when I started shooting again... take er easy, no rush ;)

Pretty sure that they were talking about draw weight rather than body weight. No need to pull 70 lbs.
