Default Need good Pro Shop in IL or near STL

I'm from Waterloo and need a good pro shop. I just bought a Bowtech Admiral and would like to find someone to help me work on it. I do alot of the work myself but need help with timing the cams.
I was going to go up to Crakers Carter (and may still) but it's like 5 hours away in n.w. MO.. Someplace around s.w. or central IL or STL area.

Have heard of quite a few shops in the area but I want someone who really knows what they are doing..

Thanks

Cam Timing mostly.. Tink noise when draw stop hits cable.. We have talked about the one issue before but I can't get rid of it.
Was told by Crackers Cam Timing is off and draw stop needs adjusted..

Kind of tired of "trying things"... Just need someone who knows what's up to take a look at it.

Just need a good shop. If nothing else I may take the drive up to northern MO..

Blevins archery is where i bought my bow. They are located in Perryville, MO. They are class act people. I bought my bow and he didnt have the right modules so he ordered them and brought them to his work in kirkwood for me to pick up instead of making the trip down south again.

I have done all my archery stuff at Blue Ridge Backwoods in Monticello IL. They are the owners of A LOT of my money! Monticello is near Champaign.
