    The draw stop is actually what creates the back wall. You have a little bit to go as far as using the full module. You need a little more rotation of the cam. You can do this by moving the draw stop to make the draw length a little bit longer--maybe 1/4". Once you get the full rotation into the module groove you could always add about 10 twists to the string to shorten the draw length back to where you now have it and get a touch more valley. All depends on how anal you are about the draw length. Doing this you'll lose a couple pounds of draw weight. It's all a balancing act.

    If you like the way it feels you could just leave it alone and go shootin.

    Thanks Barry for all the insight and thoughtful response. I might try and play with it a bit once I build my inline press in June. Until then I am going to sight it all in and shoot it a bit. Bill

Of course that may be because I hang my cameras on well used trails. The SD card that had the 3 Cougars on was sort of a tell tale. First was a Blacktail, nice tall tined forkie, a cow elk, a bear, a muddy Bull elk, and then the cats. Sure looked like they were following the groceries. Which county are you in?
    I'm all the way at the bottom of the state in Jackson County. Always wanted to hunt the late elk season that goes on up in the Willamette Valley area but am always really busy with the late blacktail season. Well, that and the fact that I don't know any of the area up in that neck of the woods.

    I know the same about your end of the state. Up here in the middle, the Rosies are on the West side of I-5, in the typical Roosevelt habitat ( Jungle ) old growth timber tracts, which is, of course, where those November hunts are held. The trail cam site in in the hunt area. In Aug of 11, my son and I rode our mountail bike right into a herd of about 40 elk about 1/2 mile from the trail cam site, we were into them before either of us knew the others were there! Suprise on both side, Elk every where, crashing through the heavy under growth. We've been haunting the area ever since, but those Rosies are just as good at being ghostly as Blacktails are! How something that large can move so quietly just amazes me. This guy also lives in that area. These are also trail cam pic, the bottom one was taken 15 minutes after we changed the batteries in the camera, so Roly Poly big blackie was watching us while we were there.

    that's a nice bear! I would stick an arrow in him/her for sure. I'll have to resize some of my past photos this week and post them for you to see. I have pics of a real nice 6x6 bull that is a 20 minute drive from my house away. I also have tons of pics of bears out at my normal blacktail stomping grounds.

    Looks like you're on a nice trail as well, really like the blacktail and the big bull. Hope you get the chance to slip an ICS 400 through all of them! Local biologist told me that June-July in time for blackbears to make cubs. We've got a lot of color phase bears up here, all in the Blackberrys during Aug-Sept, with the rain we are having this year, we should have bumper crop of berrys, maybe I can catch up with Roly Poly this year, although camera site I got his pic from ( about 2 miles from the Cat site ) is an old homestead, the apple tree that the camera is on is now burried in blackberrys, last time I was in there, there were tunnels throught the berrys, biggest tree there is the old apple, well with in reach of that bear. These two where about 1/2 mile up the hill from Roly Poly.
