    Had an interesting day today. Went into my local Fishing/gun/archery shop, in that order & started discussing my bow. Straight away the bloke said he could not test it on the store range as his target was not adequate enough. He was concerened the penetration would be too great & would damage his wall I was ticked by that response. Incidently, it does not have a name as yet but if it did it would be called ""WellHard""

    It was fun. It made me realize how fast and accurate this bow is! Any tips for when I move up to 30 yards? What distance should I get comfortable shooting at for hunting?

    if your going to be hunting with it my pins have been at 10...20...30...40...50 but my 10 and 20 yard pins are the same unless im elivated (up in a tree on out of a window in my house to practice) but also when i am hunting i only feel comfy at shooting at 10..20...30 yards at the most i can say most people usually ar only comfy at 20 yards i only have my pins for 40 and 50 for doing practice and just playing around doing shoot outs with some of my buddies on the weekends but you never know the more you practice the farther you can shoot the other day i took a doe at 43 yards but even when i practice i say i wont shoot that far just know the farther it is from you the smaller the target and easyer mistakes and if you feel you can make the shot just dont take the shot its not worth wounding an animal you also got to remember its alot harder hunting than it is target shooting because of adrentalen is making you shake craze just think of it this way when hunting you take a shot at 20 yards feels like target shooting at 50 or 60 yards almost thats my opinion

    Do a search on this site or on the web, for walk back tuning and you should be all set. I believe that you tube has a perfect video on it.

    Get comfortable at all distances, meaning shoot a lot of arrows at all distances. The more you shoot, and become proficant at, the easier the 40 to 20 yds shots seem. I see no problem with a 60 yd shot at a feeding deer, I know that he won't hear my bow at that distance and with his head down in the browse, he'll never know whats about to hit him. Of course, your results may differ.

    Question

    Uuuugh. I just wrote like a three page response to all of you guys and somehow I accidentally changed pages and hit back and it was gone.
    Anyway, thank you all for the responses and positive encouragement. From what I got from you all the key is practice, practice,practice. I love shooting this bow so that's a good thing, right!
    As far as the videos, thanks hutch. At the moment I'm having trouble watching them. I will definitely watch later.

    practice is key along with good form.the more you shoot the better you get.shooting from differnt spots,changeing the places you shoot at is allwaysgood.i would kick a ball out into a open field and shoot at it no knowing the yardage to i was shooting.and also shooting like 5-10 feet awy from a target to help with form
