Default Time For Me To Get Ready

With our bow season opener coming OCT 2nd, it's time for me to get things ready for it.

My stands, etc have been in place for months.

Unfortunately I haven't shot my bow in months.
The last time I shot it was when I changed the limbs on it, and only shot a few arrows to begin the tuning process.
I'll be finishing that process this afternoon when it cools down some.

I'll be ready.

Rick

I have found myself in the opposite situation. I have been shooting my bow religiously all year, but got on a last minute lease with nothing ready until two days ago.

I guess my preliminary tuning was better than I thought it to be.
Didn't have to change a thing.

This was my second group after a 5 target arrow warm up.
First group was a little bigger, but not much

20 yards:
2 - Broad Heads
2 - Bare Shafts
1 - Target Point

Naturally, the stripped fletching had to be one of the broadheads.
No biggie.

I'm good to go.

I'm way behind too. At least in the shooting department.

I don't really have to shoot a lot, or often to stay in shape to shoot.
Plus, I aim, and I don't forget how I aim.

20 yards is my point on.

Well I'm able to shoot well enough I guess but I'm not able to shoot as many reps as I normally do to prep.

It only takes the one shot (usually).
