Question New rest after paper tuning

Got a smackdown pro off a fellow TBHer and fininly getting to set it up.

I just finished paper tuning, what is next step?

Group tuning sight?

Walk back tuning?

What if you only have 12 feet to work with?

Looking forward to what ya all have to say.

If it’s paper tuned... shoot a broad head at whatever distance you can realistically shoot good. No need for 12 steps to get to same end result. If they don’t shoot together it’s likely a form issue that lies in the paper and a walk back tuning would probably be easier for most

This is the method I use.


Modified Sooner Tuning can be done in your garage.

1) setup a target bag so the bullseye is at YOUR exact shoulder height.

2) hang a string with a weight on the end to pull the string tight.

3) adjust the string so it SPLITS the bullseye right down the middle

4) STEP BACK to 72-inches

5) YUP, only 6 feet.

6) Load a field point arrow

7) fire at the string

8) BE REALLY PICKY...you want to split the fibers of the string into a left and right side....just NEXT to the string is NOT good enough.

ONLY ADJUST THE SIGHT PIN WINDAGE...JUST TINY LEFT TO RIGHT ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SIGHT PIN ONLY,
when shooting at a distance of 6 feet

9) ok, you split the string into a left and right side...pinned it perfectly.

10) NOW, back up to ANY CONVENIENT LONGER DISTANCE

For YOU, might be 12 feet
or could be 19 feet
or could be 22 feet
or could be 29 feet
or could be 33 feet....

WHATEVER longer distance is CONVENIENT for you.

11) NOW, if you are in NO DANGER of destroying arrows,
fire a 3 arrow group.

Size is not important.

Only thing that matter is the CENTER of your 3 arrow group.

IS THE CENTER OF YOUR ARROW GROUP
CENTERED AROUND THE BULLSEYE?

12) IF NOT, then ONLY MOVE THE ARROW REST,
at the longer CONVENIENT shooting distance.

Just move the arrow rest a skosh,
and keep firing arrow groups
until your 3 arrow group is CENTERED on top of the bullseye
at the CONVENIENT TO YOU longer distance.

13) NOT done yet

14) Fire a single field point arrow at the string
at a DISTANCE OF 72-INCHES.

ONLY adjust the sight pin windage (left to right adjustment)
until you can split the string fibers again.

NEXT to the string is not good enough.

15) OK, you can split the string fibers again.

16) YOU know what comes next.

17) Go back to the CONVENIENT TO YOU longer distance.

18) Fire a 3 arrow group.
ONLY adjust the ARROW REST at the CONVENIENT TO YOU longer distance.

Keep making tiny adjustments to the ARROW REST at the longer distance,
until the 3 arrow group is CENTERED on top of the bullseye.



DO this back and forth,
several times,
and then you should be good to go at ANY distance.

I seem to be running out of windage on the sight shooting string from 5'. Close. 1/4" or so, but ok tx says close is not good enough.

sight is a spot hog hog it.

If something is close to maxing out... something is off. Rest or shooting form
