    I paper tune every year just to keep it in check. Never know when you hit your rest during season that could mess up a shot on a giant. Never hurts to be too careful

    paper tuning is just a starting point.

    I paper tune only with a bareshaft out to 10 yards. Then I verify bareshaft and fletched are hitting same POI out to 20-30 yards

    I don't like it when people post with quotes for emphasis but I feel compelled. No doubt you have had success in the field. Thing is I believe I owe it to every animal I want to kill to give them as humane a death as possible. Proper tuning will give you shorter blood trails and quicker kills. It is clearly not necessary to be successful but I truly believe it makes a difference at longer yardage and can also help with shorter trailing and cleaner kills. OP you aren't the only one not tuning this way but I wish everybody would.

I practice year round to stay proficient, why would I risk shooting a poorly tuned setup after all that shooting?

    If someone is paper tuning and let's say they have a slight tear right won't the arrow correct itself in the next few yards of flight anyway? Or will it just keep flying slightly off kilter the whole time?

    are you learning to tune you bow your self? if so start paper tuning with a bare shaft.
