Default Its been a while...

Since I had to set up a new bow. (I will shoot my BMXL for this year)

Bought the lady friend a Mission Riot. Nice bow.

So I pulled out all my old accessories and found some stuff that will work nicely.

She had a plate put in her bow arm a few years ago after an ATV accident. So she will have to build up to a hunting poundage. (30lbs is fine. 40lbs she can get back but is uncomfortable at this time.)

So I installed a loop, peep, wrist sling, arrow rest and simple 3 pin site. Put on the lightest stabilizer I had. I have about a doz different releases for her to try.

I found about 15 CX Terminator JR's that are the perfect length.

Well, wish me luck...she all ready loves to hunt with the rifle. Lets see if we can turn her into a bow hunter...or at least an avid archer!

Its nice when you find the right one. You want to do everything with them. I find myself thinking about all the stuff I can do again, now that I found the right one.

Had to get her a shorter release, said she felt like she was stretching out too far.

So we picked up a Scott Little Goose. Man how come I never tried this release before.

Yeah well you could have tried harder to convince me of the wonderful things that are this release. Might have to get a little bitty goose yo try. Only thing I don't like is the inability to fold it over into your sleeve....

Her form looks fine from on the flat. Stick her up on a platform and have her aim down 5 yards out. That will tall ya a lot on the DL. My shots on deer are from zero to 25. What feels comfy on the level might not be from an elevated stand.

I shortened it an inch from what the shop had said her draw length was...I have been thinking it might still be a tad long.

A nice release for smaller hands for sure, works great for target or hunting
