I'm sure there are a lot of folks out there.

I went to a local archery shop the day before the season a couple of years ago to pick up some string wax and a couple of paper targets, and the parking lot was full with people buying bows and arrows, and questioning the staff on how to set them up to shoot.
No doubt they never used a bow before, or knew anything other than you put the arrow on the string, pull back, and let it fly!
I will admit that shooting a bow, once you get competent, is a little like riding a bike, and doesn't take long so if that is you, good luck!
It's those that don't have a clue that are cause for concern.

Shot mine 6 times last Sunday. One arrow went almost through my old bag target (messed up feathers) and busted a nock off another arrow bang

of course, I've seen the same thing at gun shops with folks
buying guns and having the shop personnel "sighting them in"
and fully well intending to go hunt with these guns without
ever firing them beforehand.

I've shot a bunch. So much that my release string broke this week in the driveway. Now I've got to hustle to get that fixed. bang

She was shooting pretty good at 40 yards before the breakdown.



Got a little guy on film I'd love to stroll by at 40 yards or under. eek2

I took a few days off the last week and a half because of a fractured knuckle and it's tough drawing the bow with it but I normally shoot most every day and even with this I've shot one or two arrows most days as well. Yesterday I put about 30 arrows down range. The Widow is ready to bite something tomorrow.

I'm off to the deer woods. My son is home on leave to sling a few arrows with me. I'm after a pig and he is after a deer. Good luck gents.
