Thanks Bruce, I'll have to start using the other dots on the target I guess now. That Blazer will defiantly have to be replaced and while whoever does it I'll have them do my hunting arrows that have regular vanes with Blazers too.

Some other good news: I finally got my form down! I can get 5 arrows in a 1.5 - 2 inch circle but a couple inches below the middle dot so I'll have to fine tune the sight a little, but I'm pretty happy that it got corrected. It was my release because before I was jerking it but now I'm taking my time and slowly squeezing the trigger.


Thanks a bunch for all you replies and help!! You guys rock! :D :D

Eric I am glad to see that you got things straighten out. Just keep up the good practice and like Bruce said you might want to start shooting one arrow per dot. Anyway good luck when you go hunting.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :bigthumb: :bigthumb: You did it Run - that's way cool. Confidence is a huge part in archery/bowhunting, you're building that up when you are tearing up those blazers my friend.

Thanks Rowdy! I'm just glad I could find out what was wrong and correct it before I got so frustrated that I gave up.


Another question: What is a fair price to pay to have arrow refletched? I am about to e-mail the pro-shop where I bought my bow to see how much he charges but would like to know what to expect to pay to get 7 arrows reflechted. Do most dealer's prices include the vanes or do you have to buy them?


Thanks
Eric

I don't consider myself a fabulous shot. But I usually only try for tight groups on a target when I want to tear up some arrows.

Like was already suggested. Multi-spot targets are the way to go!

Awesome Run! I'm with Rowdy-it will get your confidence up. This is a huge part of bowhunting. Archery is undoubtly a mental game!!
