I relocated my target and built a huge 8'x8' back stop with double 1/2'' plywood and foam 3/4'' in between. But ever since then it is hard to tune the whole thing out. Any way, I hope to get back out to my friends round bales soon. None of my hunting shots are over 30 yards, but, it would be cool to say I can hit a paper plate at 60 yards. I am not going to do it over night, just a goal. Thanks for all the tips and ideas. Y'all are the best.
    Sounds like you need a one-on-one with a knowledgeable archer.

    OK, Sonny got me thinking. There are no clubs around here so I went back and did some re-reading of a Larry Wise book. I went over my form, found some flaws and then I started re-tuning my bow. I had a horrible paper tear. I realized that when I changed my draw stop and module setting, I did not make the adjustments on the nocking point. So, there you go. I am hitting better groups. Still a little panic though.

    Another good book to read is "Idiot Proof Archery" by Coach Bernie Pellerite. It has a ton of good info and a section on tp...

    • A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
