Sticksnstrings, thanks for your advice. Another senior member here gave me some excellent advice on my technique and it corrected the problem instantly. I'm now shooting 2" groupings at 20-30-40 yards. I'm not planning on shooting one that far but my site is a HHA Optimizer and I had to shoot it at 20 & 60 to site it in. I'm shooting the same groupings from elevated platforms also as well as sitting. I can't see what waiting a year is going to do. I've deer hunted for 40 years and shot hundreds of deer...I know Bowhunting will have its own set of challenges, but I ain't about to wait another year to face them.
