80
« on: August 27, 2017, 11:50:17 AM »
went to the range yesterday.  Love where I live, but the bow range options suck.
So, always looking for the best way to optimize my range time.


I started at the 80 yarder. First shot was money.  Perfect bulls .  then things went back to normal.  6-8" groups. I shot a few rounds.  Then I  scooched up to 60.  Waap!  A bonifide 2" group. 60 got fairly easy after that.   My eyesight is the limiting factor now. :(


(I talked to my wife about buying a new bow to get right with my dominant eye. I think she is on board with me relearning; starting over from scratch and moving over to a lefty bow. )

Following my dominant eye was the smartest move I ever did, Cliff......
I HIGHLY recommend it.....

Good idea, but I would wait until after bow season is over.  :) Sounds like you are doing great now though.

Yea. I tried this year but it was a no go. Seems like there is always a season around here. Maybe I can be a crazy switch-hitter for a spell.
