I do something very similar but I walk back in 5 yd increments out to 40 yards and use the same pin all the way back. Not looking to hit the x, but looking for left/right impacts. It will tell you if your rest needs to be moved. If you get a sting of holes that fades left or right (it will be amplified by the distance, so the farther back you go, the more left or right from the string your arrows will impact) move the rest the opposite direction. Just remember that a micro move on the rest results in big movement down range!
Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

If you're in the general ball park when starting, It doesn't take much time at all.

Nice Topic BuckeyeRed.
I'm new to archery and was wondering what role the rest played (besides supporting the arrow) in adjusting for accuracy, beyond what the adjusting the sight pins would do. I'm currently sighting in my "new" preowned bow (2006 PSE Nova for the first time at 10 yards. I had to move the sight bracket (holding all the sight pins) all the way over to the right as the arrow was going way right. The arrows are now going "marginally" centered, but still favoring right a bit. I was wondering if moving the rest to the left is an acceptable way of adjusting for this. I have no manual to refer to. Your article should be very helpful, especially as I get out to 20/30/40 yards.
I am wondering though, if I should move the sight bracket back to the left a bit and then make up the difference by moving the rest. Your thoughts please.

i would move sights back a bit then finish the tuning at the rest just so when your "done" you will have some play left in the sights.

It works as far as it goes, but it is only a method of rough tuning like paper tears... it'll get you in the ball park.Mike "Javi" Cooper

You can always shoot from your knees too, that can get you straight on. Follow the tuning guide, it really works. Also, adjust in small increments so you can change it back if need be. I always tune either horizontally or vertically first or vice versa, one direction then the other

Everyone should own a Nuts and Bolts of Archery, it's free and provides an A to Z on archery, with the majority of information from average archers and pro archers from members of Archery Forums. Now how many Books let the average archer share their experiences? I love the book.
