Work is Payin' Off!

I haven't been shooting that long with the bow but I have been working pretty consistently at being consistent and I'm trying my darnedest to avoid bad habits. Sure, the occasional string slap reminds me that I should get too cocky just yet. LOL!

So, I went to the range yesterday and spent an hour shooting at targets from 10 to 30 yards and managed to stick this deer decoy 3 times at 20 yards.

I laughed out loud when I saw where the arrows were and the range master came in to see what I was doing and he seemed genuinely impressed. He could tell I was a rookie by how I set my arrows on the floor RIGHT NEXT TO THE FLOOR STAND and how I put my bow back into the case when I went downrange even though there were hooks at eye level where I could hang the bow...

Still, I've gotta' crow a little about those shots.

I really was crushing pretty much everything at 10 and 20 yards and was hitting consistently at 30 yards but was missing the bullseye because I hadn't sighted in my bow for that distance yet. Then I realized that I hadn't brought any tools that would allow me to make adjustments while I was there...

Still the rookie but getting better...

Thanks for reading,
