Default Bad day at the range!

I have been working on my bow for several weeks now. First changed to a peep without rubber strap,it spun on me during a shoot and Ichanged back to a hunter peep with strap. When I had tried to spin the string and loop to get the other peep torotate during the shoot I must have changed my nock point. Got that straightened out and my sights were off, corrected my sight and trying out some new slick tricks, bow was shootin' sweet and all of a sudden my peep wouldn't rotate fully and the cam made a clunking noise. Investigation showed the string starting to seperate in front of the cam. I amthinking maybe this ain't myyear to shoot great scores in my broad head league. As a matter of fact maybe I should stay out of my climber this year and hunt from the ground with this kind of luck.

It will indeed get better and it could be a whole lost worse.

Here is a pic of my last bad day at the range. The roof collapsed while I was shooting my pistol. The retaining wall fell outward and crushed 8 vehicles including mine.






Like I said, it could be worse.

Are you shooting a Mathews Switchback? I'm seeing the serving coming apart on the lower cam.

Hang in there, and work it out!
Dad gummit I hate it when things "unravel" with my bow!
Keep the faith. Be methodical/systematic in your approach to fixing the problem.
Good luck!!!
