fisher; you are correct we will have to resight his bow. When I lowered the draw weight, he said to me " this is way to easy to pull back". I told him its not about how much you can pull back, its about being accurate. When I start to see tight groups, then we might turn bow up. I have been blessed with two wonderful boys who love to shoot with me.
take a look in Green with envy thread. (feal free to post up his groups)
. Rhino is 5' 5" an 150lbs 27"draw, shoots a parker sidekick @ 40lbs.
I know he is under bowed.. but with out 50# limbs he knows he cant have more even if he wants it.. and he does..
I was talking to Rottzilla who lives a few miles from the Parker facility, and they're still making us send the bow back and have them install limbs, $50 for the limbs +shipping. Only has to shoot 130 yds to be legal here. :) and 40# is enough for this not so little guy, wonder what he'll be wearing in July? :)
ElkSlayer; To answer your questions, when we shoot targets he shoots 2 warm up rounds, then 10 rounds of 6 arrows (72), that takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
sounds like he shoots plenty then...back the 6 arrows down to 4.( thats the # used in field rounds) you can still shoot that time frame just may get more ends done :D hope his target shooting comes around,,,as i said make it fun.
go ahead an give them one of your arrows to shoot at..watch them groups get tighter...
We shot target lastnight and he had a robin hood. We get up this morning and he has to shoot 4H archery, and guess what another robin hood $$$$$$$$. He is shooting much better. Thanks
Robinhoods are great! As bfisher said the confidence level climbs and so doesn't the shooting.
That is good news shoots martin!
