Thanks in advance!

You'll have $50 in a home made target as well. I broke down and spent the $50 on a Delta Speed Bag. Been shooting at it for 3 years. Can hardly tell. Stops arrows and you can pull them out with 2 fingers.

Been hunting with my beautiful styers .308 all my life and damn do I love it.
But, wanted to try something new- archery hunting is a totally different game, as you're not gonna drop that buck and the one behind it at 400 yards. (That number gets bigger every time I tell the story)

SO,
Heres my bow!

You aught to go to archerytalk.com and search for the nuts and bolts of tuning. a very well detailed article by a very informed man on tuning bows specifically to you. I used it this year for the first time and my groups at the start of hunting season were down to about 2" at 40 yards from 3-4". Beware though, it is addicting like guns and trucks. You will fix one thing then want to try something else and next thing you know you have been out there for 6 hours and all you have learned is what doesnt work for you. But its rewarding when you finally get it working for you

Call it dumb luck but this thing is set up PERFECTLY. That is the grouping at 60 yards with no adjustment. Only had to move my 70 & 80 pins down a bit.

Spent all afternoon hunting wabbits. No luck, but it's not the bow at all. Shooting Easton 340 arrows 100 grain varmint tips. Pretty much the greatest thing ever.
