    before you buy a used bow determine that replacement strings are available at a reasonable price.

    this should be in Rules of Thumb and lessons learned the hard way. I figure the same crowd reads all three.

    This dog is usually great but she hit the ice and didnt know what to do about it.

    It's fun to watch them swim with a goose in their mouth.

    This is what I'm thinking of going with, if I did my measurements right I need about a 30inch draw, should have no problem shooting 70lbs although people say you dont need that much, probably wimps :) Screenshot_20200203-184113_eBay.jpeg

    if you buy a used 70 pound bow, it will be set to 70 pounds pull, because the PO worked his way up to full power.

    if you adjust it down, do it 1/4 turn of the screw at a time, and alternate between the top and bottom screw

    Define ‘short’. Pretty much everyone is short compared to you. I think everyone is tall. I’m 4’11”. I even think Balota is tall and he’s 5’6”.

    Got a little shooting in today. We're supposed to get hit with snow sometime tonight, so I wasn't sure if I was going to get the chance tomorrow. It's wet and miserable enough out there without adding snow to it.

    UPS dropped off some ammo and mags so I got to play around with my new 7.62x39 AR pistol build. :D

    Those dogs are so darned cute. Even grown up they always have a puppy face. And your dogs markings are very pretty.

    I've been thinking about bows a lot and remembered the last time I actually shot a real one. I was in highschool, maybe 16 years old. I went to my buddies house, this guy was a big time bow hunter and had some fancy stuff. I brought my 35 pound genesis bow along with no sights of course and horribly bent arrows. He was trying to show me how he could hit a skoal can at 50 yards, he shot all of his arrows around it, not quite touching it. Just messing around I pulled my bow back, held high and absolutely drilled the can, I played it off as skill but it was 100% luck.
