That is what I was thinking.

That is what I was thinking. Just about every time I have had problems with arrow flight it has come back to the rest, not the arrows. That's not to say that your arrow can't cause this, it absolutely can but I'm thinking its more likely that the rest has either worked itself out of proper alignment or just got bumped and is now not where it is supposed to be.

Your probaly right, I did put

Your probaly right, I did put a new rest on in Jan but didnt have this problem till july. Its possible that it moved however all the bolts holding it on are still tight. but stranger things have happened, i still havent had a chance to take it in to see whats going on but I will, I kinda think now that the rest has shifted a little bit. thanks for all the replys. I wasnt to worried about it since i was still hitting my aim piont every time but i do need to get it fixed. thanks again.

Right on!

Glad you figured it out!  Just a question for you?  Did you take it to a bow shop becasue you don't have room to shoot nearby or because you're not familiar with the tuning procedures?  You don't have to answer (I'm not trying to call you out on a public forum) but I was just curious why you wouldn't try to fix it yourself.  I may be one of the exceptions, but I try to do as much tinkering around with my bow (during the offseason) as I can get away with.  I have yet to press my bow and mess with the string/cables but, other than that, I think I have messed with just about everything else.  I replaced sights, rests, quivers, messed with the settings on my release and limbs, etc.  Do most of you guys take your bows to shops for tuning issues?  Just curious...

lol

You can call me out, I'm not shy.LOL. I'm pretty new to the bow thing, I have tinkered with it a few times, when i first got i set it up myself and everything like that, I just wanted it done right i guess. I mess with the rest trying to fix it i guess i just didnt move it over enough. But to answer your question yes I'm not to familiar but i try to fix things myself first. since i have a hunt coming up i wanted it tuned the right way.

Good to hear you are back to

Good to hear you are back to shooting straight. I had a hunch that was what was going on. I am in the same boat as you. I guess I am not exactly new to archery, but it is not my primary hunting method and I just do not have the experience level to make myself comfortable to do everything myself. I still go into shops to talk it over with the people that get paid to do so. I have tinkered with that stuff and fixed the problem when my bow did that but I still like to make sure that I did it the right way. And until I have done everything atleast once, that means taking it to a shop to atleast make sure that I did things right. Shoot straight boys!
