Form display and gear tune. Whats your furthest distance? How is your bicep TT?

I had considered closer but you havent shot in a couple weeks. I know you are distance limited and can take that into consideration when I choose future targets.

I had considered either 29 or 36 to match the week. Id really like to stretch the field of given more opportunity.

I have no issue stretching the field. Maybe TT could go to his club to shoot it if he really wanted to.
I was out and shot a bare shaft at 25 yards a few times. Showed that I didn't have my nock height quite right. Up close it was less noticeable but further out I could see it more in flight.
I'll shoot it later in the week, string arm issues permitting.
That said after this week I won't shoot past 20 yards and do most of my shooting at 12 to 16 yards sitting. Hunting season is a month out. That's what my set ups are and hunting is my focus.

It's difficult coming up with interesting and challenging yet fair shots. That's why coming in second place is good.

Great shot. Briar!

So, I did go out to the club, and shot the first shot from 32, about a hat-bill left of center. I'll take that.

Good luck on the hunt Byron. Hope you find a large gut pile at the end of a short blood trail.
