Default Hello from the Hollow

Hello Im new to this forum and have been shooting my bow for about 1 month now. I have shot small straight and recurve bows but dont have much experience with a compound. Im a Ranger on a 1200 acre Boy Scout camp here in Kentucky and have plenty of room to practice. The Christian Bowhunters of Kentucky hold 3-d shoots on the camp from Feb. thru Oct. and Im looking foward to loosing arrows this season (I hope not). I picked up a older PSE USA Spirit bow and have been practicing but need to set up my bow correctly. I will be taking it to the local shop (The Hunters Den) for their assistance. Ive already learned many things from this site and look foward to learning more. I got the fever when a friend visited and brought his bow up. Ive found several different types of arrows from the 3-d shoots last season and like the Easton Lightspeed arrows the best. I purchased some cheap Easton Fall Stalker aluminum arrows for now and will upgrade when I get better.


Take care,

Taslagi Ranger
