Miserable hot day here in SE GA, heat index was about 120. Headed to SC this afternoon and after finishing my must do chore (back brakes on the truck), I setup a target area and broke out the bow. I have a large cardboard box about 3 feet square packed with old Styrofoam and newspaper for a base. I taped on a paper plate for a target and drew a bullseye on it. I figured I'd start at 15 paces as I haven't shot a bow in going on 40 years. I bought the bow bare so I added the arrow rest and sight and I had no idea whether I had them setup right. I didn't - as I barely even hit the box on the first arrow. After some tweaking I got them dialed in pretty good. Anyway, I was able to put 10 arrows in the paper plate at 15 paces - so I'm happy for a start. Rather than use a release, I was shooting with my fingers. I had the bow turned down to 45# and it worked well. I think I'm going to enjoy this very much!
