I bought a used bow last week. I took it to my local archery shop and had it tuned for me. I had to replace the arrow rest, but have been practicing at the archery range. My groupings are good, but not used to the sights on it, I want to get a new sight for it. Thewolfieone is going to make a target for me to practice at home(hay bales). I went online and found a few websites to print my own targets at home. I still have to take a Bowhunter safety course and am waiting for them to call to let me know when it is. I have been wanting to start bow hunting for a few years since it will extend my hunting seasons.
I am absolutely horrible at judging distances so I will need a rangefinder. There is one called Dead On Rangefinder that is for attaching to your bow sight that looks promising.
Any hints or tips for this extremely novice bow hunter would be welcome. The last time I shot a bow and arrow was in high school gym class and had those bows that looked like fiberglass sticks.
