    Russ's diagram is good to follow for paper tuning. If you dont have a paper rack to shoot through you can build one out of a box and freezer or wax paper. Just cut a hole big enough in the bottom of the box and tape the paper to cover that hole.

    Additionally you might want to try broadhead tuning. WSP has a good page explaining how to do it here:

    Here is a link by John Dudley as well.:

    5:45How to Tune Your Compound Hunting Bow so your Broadheads ...

    You can jump straight to broadhead tuning if you like as utilmatley that is whats matters when hunting.

    If you get stuck just ask. Good luck.

    First thing first man check your rest. You want to be straight up with 2 inches left of cycle. Last two inches should "cock or arm" the drop away. Then start with rest at 11/16 from riser. Then begin your tune. If you don't want to paper you can French tune first. PM for further questions.

    All good suggestions above.
    Arrow spine will have to be correct. I like to paper tune first. I simply do that at the pro shop when I have the peep tied in, d-loop installed, and drop away timed. I don't have a vice so it's easier that way. After that I will French tune at home. Then I like to bare shaft tune. Bareshaft tuning will get those fixed blades flying very well. Watch a youtube video, but basically you shoot a bare shaft arrow and a fletched arrow. Tune until they are grouping together. If your field points and broad heads shoot to the same POA, you're good to go. It's an easy check to see if your bow is in tune, if my broad heads don't shoot with my field points I know something has changed.
    Torque tuning is going to be the next thing I try out.
