    Default Who takes warm up shots before going out to hunt?

    Who takes warm up shots before going out to hunt? Usually my kids and I take warm up shots before we leave to go out on a hunt. For us it is as simple as shooting in the basement at 20yards before we walk into the back yard. I have found it does 2 purposes gets me ready to hunt and shows me where the bow is at. So it can be fixed quickly.
    How about you guys?

    I'll shoot a few rounds when I get to camp the night before, but typically when heading first thing in the morning from camp or out from truck if not camping, I'll just draw back a few times to loosen up a bit and make sure a coat or something isn't catching.

    x2 plus any afternoon or evening hunt I'll sling a couple at an old block target we leave out at camp b4 getting in the woods. Some A.M. hunts I shoot a couple off the elevated porch; camp is built on posts on a side of a hill. Shot is about an eight foot decline at about 15 yds.

    I haven't before, but this season I think I plan to. I think this will help make sure everything is in order, though I have no worries that it wouldn't be. Will also help to loosen up when it gets cold. I think a few shots, is reasonable.
