I can't help you there. I'd go to the Spyder on hunts like those. I'm WEAK!

Well last year I had goals of shooting to 30 yards and killing more critters.
Getting some of it done. Getting closer to last years goals but it's taking longer than I expected.
I practice more at 25 and 30. Since I got the Tall Tines I feel more confident at longer ranges.
Not that a hunting shot that far is something I'd take but this pig don't know that.

Well, my continual goal at this point is to somehow get back to being able to shoot like I did before jacking up the nerve in my neck. In June, it will be 2yrs, and although it is better somewhat, it is still so far behind that there are many days where I just feel like giving up and quitting!!!!!

Did they fuse your vertebrae? That seems to be the standard method of treatment from the three orthopedic surgeons I've seen.

No, there has been nothing done medically. My personal Dr pretty much told me there is nothing that can be done unless it happens again or gets worse. In that case there is the possibility of a surgery. There is no real pain that hurts. Just weakness in left arm and hand, and inability to consistently aim a bow because of it.

Based on that last sentence, my new revised goal is to shoot against Bisch for money....

In all seriousness, sorry about your issues. Iíve got a wife with a back thatís in a similar situation. Basically, suffer until itís bad enough to risk surgery.

Iíd also like to get back to shooting 3D well. Iíve had some issues with accuracy and consistency shooting 3D over the last few years and feel like it may be coming back. I hope so!
I was kind of just kidding when I said 18 kills for 2018 but now I really want to do it. 11 so far!😜👍

Sorry to hear it Bisch!! I'm having trouble too and don't have any reason for it. I had been shooting great, then a few weeks ago got into a slump I can't seem to shake. It's so bad I got an inexpensive compound. I'm gonna take a couple weeks off from shooting trad altogether after I get back from Chester and see if maybe that will help. I still shoot decent at 15 and under, but past that if I can put 3 out of 4 arrows in a block target I'm doing good. I'll never give up but I'm definitely gonna have to take a break.
