Tuning up the old bow...
« on: June 09, 2012, 09:03:55 PM »
OK! I left the guns in the vault tonight. Broke down the old Whitetail Hunter. Mounted the peepeliminator. Lubed and cleaned getting ready to fine tune the skills. Last years buck I attribute to luck. Wanting to feel more confident  in my ability, going to practice 2-3 nights a week after chores. I have gotten used to the arm brace for my left arm just got to work on steadying. I did not trun the bow down, left it a 70#'s, just have to get the old muscles back in shape. Of course when there is hair on the far side of the pins adrenaline kicks in. I think I should get a new block mine is showing it's age, sorta like me. %^$^

I had my bow turned down to 50 lbs so i could shoot after my shoulder replacement. It is so much more comfortable fo me shooting at this weight, I'm leaving it there and there was minimal effect on speed and none on accuracy

Good time to get started, Dutch!!   It won't be too much longer!    Don't hurt yourself, though.    I shoot #55 and it's all I need.   Much easier on "veteran" muscles!!

Just my luck! Got the bow ready and it has been so windy the past couple of days I have not ventured forth to sight in the peep eliminator. I may go up in the old hay barn and practice 20 yards shots. Out of the wind and with a little cooler temp won't roast myself. I'm excited to use the eliminator.
