I've been shooting at least 30 arrows almost every day, for the past 2 months, concentrating on form and shot execution first and foremost.  I have my bow well-tuned and everything dialed-in.  I only stop each day when I'm satisfied that my shot mechanics are as good as I'm capable of so I always leave on a high note.  My back and shoulder muscles are getting back into condition enough that I'm holding pretty steady.  I have to say, I'm shooting about as well as I ever have, slapping arrows together into a nice wad at 50 yards.  Provided I maintain my composure and I have a clean shot opportunity, any nice buck that gets within 50 yds of me is in GRAVE danger... only because I don't have any sight pins for distances beyond 50 yds. 

C'mon October... I can't wait!!!!!!  I LIVE for Fall!

Great desipline!! It will surely pay off. I'm not shooting near as often as I should but, I am confident that the shot will be dead on when it presents. I have stepped up to a new fun challenge lately shooting some local competitions. Top shot of the night takes home a small collective bonus making it worth while. The group that shot last week was impressive. I didn't shoot especially strong that night getting use to my new release. A tru-ball copperhead. I really like it and I will soon be shooting better than ever.
Our season starts Sept 8 and I'm all but sleepless over it. Still movin the cameras around lookin for a shooter buck but I'm content taggin does opening day if I haven't located ole mossy horns.
Also joined a new club that I have yet to do any serious scouting on. Learning new ground is always a work in progress. After I tag a couple I will get out there and see what it has to offer.
Today is down so 12 days and counting. Bring it!!

I started shooting last month.  On Saturday I finally stepped up after 15 years of bowhunting and ditched my limbsaver dampener and bought a Bee Stinger stab.  Wow.  What was I thinking all those years?  I shot it against the new Octane 7"-11" adjustable stab, and the "B" was the clear winner.  I "yanked" one of four arrows 1 1/2" to the right at 20yds at the shop.  The other three I pulled out of the target with one hand.  I can't wait for Oct. 1 either.

P.S. Graham--bought three of the G5 SGH's too.  Set them up on the old trusty feathermax.  What a great old girl she is.  They make a heck of a "thwack" on the block target, too!  Thanks for the recommendation.

It looks like they would eat any target if you shoot it a lot.

Don't forget to paper tune your quiver and check your fletching screws for tightness.

Good luck Ted. Looks like I will have to forgo bow hunting this year...maybe forever. Between my back issues and osteo-arthritis in both hands, I can't draw / hold without pain. It kills my concentration. Oh well, still got rifles! I hope everybody has a safe and successful season(s).  Yippee
