Default Tuning? Tune what???

Reading some archery literature, often times i run into the phrase "tuning your bow". I don't understand this concept. what can you do to tune a bow from the original configuration besides changing the bow string? haha. I should actually do some internet search before i post but i wrote this much anyways, so I will just post it.

Thank,
AKsoul

I didn't go to the easton guide but there are alot of things you can do. I like to walk back tune, get my specific draw length set, tune my arrows. Some people spend time paper tuning and if you have a bow that has yokes you can yoke tune. Oh, check your timeing too.

Tuning you bow is basically getting the bow to the right specs.
1.ATA
2.Brace height
3.Draw length
4.Draw weight.

Once the bow is in specs.
1. line up the Center shot with the rest
2. line up the sight
3. Walk back tune
4. Paper tune
5. Arrow tune.
