    Good group, I like to try and get 4" or smaller. Ideally 2 if I am on my game. But 8" or lower is a good group IMO.
    That's crazy good, I didn't even know that's possible. I don't shoot that good at 40 yards right now. I doubt my bow set up is capable of shooting that well.

    The bow you got now, did you go and shoot a bunch before buying it? Is the DL correct? Are you overbowed? Is the spine weak? Is the bow in tune?

    As you can tell right now and I am sure you know, all these things can add up and affect accuracy.

    I shot it 3 times before I bought it. I had all three arrows touching fletching @ 20 yards and walked out the door with it. I don't know what my DL is, how would you know if your overbowed and I don't even know what spine is??
    I have had it tuned reciantly though!

    i agree guys i have a range in my yard to 80 yards that is all i can get. but shooting at that range all the time makes your hunting ranges seem so easy. I love to practice especially with buddies. I like the competitive feel makes me concentrate harder. When that bull walks out in September i know i will hit him and don't have to think about it, it is just natural.

It's the same story for rifles for me, but rifles are way more forgiving than bows. I've always been more hunter than shooter.

    I have to admit, a 3D shoot is intimidating to me, but I have considered trying it. I have shot with my cousins in situations like that an I tend to hold my own around them. Thanks Fink

    I feel the same way. I need to improve my skills, but its intimidating to go to long range ranges and lose arrows. It seems like there is always a pro there, but the3-D deals super fun and really improve skills like learning angles and judging distance. The people here are super nice and I expect they are where you are. I am in the same boat. It is hard to get motivated to go out and do it. My eleven year old loves it, and bless his heart he is kindof a spazz. I guess we both just have to suck it up buttercup like my wife likes to say. I might need lessons on calling them in. Archery hunting here seems a lot more appealing because of the bugling and fewer hunters, so I also need to work on some of the longer distances like people were saying.

    That's pretty impressive killing a bull your first time out archery.

    Where did you buy the bow from?

    I'm going to turn this into a post padding thread! I thought I was done for the day but I have to wait to load a truck before I can get out of here.

    Velvet, I bought it from a reputable local bow shop. They sold me exactly what I was asking for, an inexpensive, reliable hunting bow. I have had it fo 3 years now and not touched much on it. I have adjusted the sights here and there but for the most part is just like it was when I walked out with it. I killed a bull with it the first season I hunted with it and haven't hunted with it since. It hung on the wall all year last year, I may have shot it a few times, but not much at all.

    Againstthewind, I need to clarify, the bull I killed with my currant bow was not my first time out. I have been bow hunting for years with many of those years being unssuccesful. I had just bought a new bow that year.

    It's also nice to know I'm not the only one who struggles with a bow.
