    Default Ahhhh...that felt sooo good!

    I am so pumped right now, I just have to tell someone. I shot my bow for the first time in 4.5 years. Thanks for the advice on sighting in. I didn't miss the target even once. I went to an indoor shoot tonight and thought I would totally suck, but now wish I kept score. I hit perfect center shots quite a few times. that felt soo good...anyone got a cigarette?

    Here is me at the range, if you have any advice on my form, do tell.

    Congratulations on the shoot. Glad to hear we actually gave some good advise. Remember its all about FUN, enjoy yourself. As for your form it looks pretty good to me just make sure you relax your bow hand. Do not get too rigid as this can cause bow torque.

    your form is actually pretty darn good! Maybe shorten your release by a tiny bit as it looks like your reaching out pretty far to hit the trigger but other then that its looking good!

    you look like your leaning back a little bit, its not much at all and could just be the camera angle though.

    Its hard to tell but do you have a wrist strap on? It looks like you do and if you do it looks to be pretty tight, this can cause a bit of bow torquing depending on how you react when you release. Having that very tight sort of negates the open hand that you are shooting with... then again it may be lose and I'm just seeing things.

    get rid of that stupid tube-peep They have a tendency to fail at the worst possible moment, they also cost you a lot of speed. And having a big tube hanging off your bow is not exactly a good thing when walking through anything thick.

    btw... ITS WINTER! PUT ON A COAT!!!

    WHAT..................they do not fail if you replace them once a year(cost=maybe $1) peeps without tubes fail at the worst possible time(not rotating properly). Ok so just how much speed do they cost you?????? 5fps wow thats a lot. I hunt in some pretty thick stuff and have never had a problem with the tube getting caught on anything. Shoot what you have confidence in. This is by the way just my opinion, we are all entitled to our own.

    I would venture to guess that less than 5% of all the shooters that I encounter over a years time at indoor and outdoor shoots use a tubed peep site. They really hurt when they come loose from the cable end at full draw. If your string is shot in properly before you install a tubeless peep site, there should be no twisting of the peep. If so, your string is stretching and you probably need a higher quality string. Just my opinion here. I have about 500 shots with my new string and my peep stays right where it needs to be without a rubber band attached to it.....

    I've had issues with them snapping or popping off the peep, I know other people have as well and yeah, having that tube snap at full draw hurts a bit.

    Never tried a tubeless peep with my XT. But when I shot my Jennings I had one on it and had a very nice 8 Pointer at about 17 yards drew and could not see a thing, talk about upset I tried to adjust with my nose and got busted. From then on I have not used a tubeless peep on a hunting bow.

    Keep them long enough so they just align your peep and replace every year.

    Being on a Jennings (which was my fist bow brand that I shot for 8 years) my comment about a quality string makes perfect sense. If you shoot in your string, say a 100 shots or so to get the stretching out of it, and then install your peep, there is absolutely no reason for the peep to rotate on shot number 101.

    I have also drawn on a deer and had my tube snap. Probably my fault for not replacing it, but I don't need another thing to worry about. I'm lucky to get in my stand with my release in my pocket.....

    Hmmm...............maybe I will talk to Cody about getting a tubeless peep put on. Pretty sure I have at least 100 shots on the XT.

    That's what they told me at the shoot. I tend to grab my bow after I shoot.

    Dredly--Put a coat on? What's that? I live in N. CA. It's suppose to be about 75 degrees this weekend.

    Tubeless Peep, Huh? I started with one of those and it always turned on me. Maybe my string just wasn't stretched yet. That is why we put the tube on. I hunted with with my tube peep and never once snagged it. Maybe I will try the tubeless again since the string has definately been stretched enough. I would rather not put my eye out if I have a better option.

    Thanks,
    Shanon

    Cody is a good kid. He should be sporting some of my arrow wraps soon. I traded Jim a black cherry C2 for a Kiwi C2 and it had a set of strings on it that Cody built. Danny and I started calling them "custom Cody's".

    Did you shoot at Jimmy's benefit shoot at Archers Spot? If so, I probably saw you in the crowd....

    Congrats on gettin to shoot....Just keep it up and you'll be bustin' X's like crazy...
    Dredly had a good point about loosening your bowsling and shortening your release alittle, that may even correct your lean back (it's only slight)...other than that looks good...
