    Quick question for people smarter than me. At 20 yards I'm dead on. At 30 I'm roughly 4" left. Couldn't tell you what 40 yards holds because I'm afraid if I try it I'll miss the target altogether. I can move my sight left but then isn't that going to throw me off at 20 yards?
    What's the fix?

    I will guess that your center shot is off. Did you do something new like get a new sight, rest, or strings?

    I would start with a french tune to make sure your sight and rest are lined up. Youtube has some great videos. I personally recommend Antler Geeks. They put out some good how-to videos.

    Center shot or you are canting the bow a lot, most likely center shot. Just in case if you have a bubble on your sight make sure its centered.

    Yes your rest is definately off. Dont let that discourage you though as its very common. As others have mentioned look up either french tuning and/or walk back tuning. They both essentially help you do the same thing. Alot of guys like to do a combination of both but French tuning is a very good starting method which will get your rest near perfect.
