Well I went to the range yesterday and broke 5 arrows (my entire quiver) with some mechanical breakdown. My dog stood on my bow case and I believe made my limb driven rest become loose and so I was not getting full arrow rest elevation. It took me way too long to figure this out... so Wednesday I will go to the shop and tighten it down and get it dialed. Meanwhile, I got my backup bow dialed with broadheads, a new site tape, and a 5 pin Montana Black Gold sight with slider out to 100 yards. The broadheads and field points are hitting at the same point and I tested this out to 82 yards. Confidence is everything.

Scheduled Rest day, really sore today man! I went to the archery shop and looked at my bow and upon further inspection my rest was good to go, rather I had a few loose allen bolts on my slider and so my housing had become very loose. We tightened up the site and made a few shots inside the shop and was back in action. My field points and broadheads were touching each other at 20 yards. Game back on!

This weekend I'm heading to Seattle for a Level 1 Certification Course thorugh CrossFit, my cert expires early 2016 so I figured I would get it done now. I've been CF Certified since 2007, I hate going to the West (WET) side of Washington with all the"coasties."
