Sounds like anyone who has not done this before is having a similar experience. I know I need to slow down. I shot all twelve sessions in30 minutes. Started out well andeven blew up an arrow in the last session. Wasn't happy with that. 263 /15X

The problem is most people who dont target shoot alot use their hunting bows set at higher weights. Most target shooters only shoot 50-60 lbs to reduce fatigue. I guess some of you can figure out why.
Well I for one will refuse to turn down my bow. This is my hunting rig and it will remain that way. I think that if I turn it down I will spend more time retuning than I have. And then I will have to retune come time to go hunting. I will bite the bullet and keep fighting the pain.

I know I rip my shots off too fast. That is my biggest problem. My body is just out of tune. I didn't do a lot of shooting last summer, so I have to readjust.
