    This site helps. Just thought I would say thanks for those of you that post some very helpful info.
    Just picked this back up 7 months ago. Still shooting every day possible. New sight (Hogg it) along with a new string (Hogwire). The old string has seen 900 to 1200 releases. Waiting to go to the bow shop to have everything tuned. I was a very good shooter 30 years ago but I was wondering if I could get it done with everything so updated.

    Proud to say that at 60 yards I'm always in a 8 inch circle.
    Anything from 20 to 50 is a softball.

    When I'm on - look out, I can put 3 in a quarter. This is accomplished when I'm rock steady and can see the pins really well. Usually at least a few times per week. When I'm off a little, I'm still shooting good so I don't worry about it...

    I truly learned everything from this site.

    Early flinching, bale shooting. Have fun and don't take things so serious.
    Good release.
    Form, form, form - your release as much as letting the bow alone in your hand. A good follow through.
    Longer yardage will do wonders for your closer yardage.
    My best groups have been (I always shoot 3) quarter size at 20, 30, 40, and 50.
    Even shot a baseball size group at 60.

    The quarter size group at 50 is what inspired me to type this tonight. Thanks to all the great readable info here.

    What a freakin blast this is. It is great to be back in this sport!!!
