Wife and kids were down in Rochester for a while so I finally had some free time. Been sighting in the bow in the backyard but my max distance is 30 yds before I run out of room. This is my 20 yard group from Monday. Notice I donít aim at 1 target after doing a Robin Hood when I first got it.

I got off work early because of the rain today so I took the pup to the river for a quick fish. You want a challenge, take a 1 yr old lab river fishing! After that I took the bow to a county forest down the road to try my hand at longer distance. At 40 I was doing very well. Went out to 50 and this was my 3rd group at that distance. A few clicks Right and and an adjustment on the speed ring...I quit while I was ahead. FYI I got this target in cabelas bargain cave for under $40 regular $99. Had a few shots into it and someone returned it. It takes broadheads too. Itís a lot lighter to haul into the bush than the yellow one.

Iíve now shot all my bolts or arrows, whichever you prefer and numbered them all and marked each vane as well so I know which One to use as the c### vane for consistency. Some have very little difference but my number 2 arrow had about 2Ē different POI with two of the vanes being used as the c### vane. Still learning with this thing but itís very fun and rewarding to use.

Nice shooting! Donít get them too close as I destroyed many arrows when they hit one another. A few right in the butt end. First time I was amazed... second and third time I started getting upset that $40 down the drain.

Thanks. Normally I donít just go for one bullseye. I used the opposite side when I was at 40. It has 3 targets. I figured at 50 Iíd spread out a bit more so used the single. Even my first two groups that were high and left were only 2-3Ē apart.

Itís an Excalibur grizzly. Itís an entry level bow. Got a great deal on it and some accessories at my local store that was closing. Iím firing 250 gr 18Ē diablos with 150 gr field points. Iíd probably get more speed with 100 gr but was advised to use a heavier broad head when hunting so went with 150. Iím standing and using cabelas v2 shooting stick. I only got it this spring and never had any free time to get out for Turkey. Iím hoping to get out this fall. Itís just with the job, and my wife has started a new business and two kids that seem to always have some sporting event time is few and far between. Even last ice season I didnít get out near as much due to my sons hockey schedule. Thatís why I was so amped to get a free day to fish and do some target practice yesterday.

Got some range time in today at Wolfs Den. Great range. I took my son so he could use his bow as well. I finally got to stretch out to 65yds today. Not bad with the rain and the bugs.

Buffalo at 65 yds as well. I was aiming at the area of the split. The heart area had been shot out and the arrows buried to far.
