I have been practicing and practicing and can now shoot at 35 yards. We took the SD Bow Hunter Safety Class and passed. We had to get new brushes for our arrow rests because the old ones were tearing up our fletches. I got new arrows with the correct spine for my draw weight and length. Everything is looking up and I can't wait for bow hunting season to start. I am having so much fun with archery that I wish I had started earlier.
