    I havent had my bow out since last november. I should be practicing, but bowhunting doesnt get me going like bird hunting does so its hard to stay motivated.

    I'v set up my ten yard range in the basement. I'll be shooting while I recover from knee surgery.

    Basement doesn't sound ideal after knee surgery, unless it's a walkout. But shooting close range can help your form a lot.

    I'll have to walk stairs three times a day and may as well shoot. At least I'll build my bow drawing muscles too .

    Did my broadhead tuning yesterday. Been shooting a good bit but I was having trouble deciding on my setup. Everything shooting good now out to 65. Haven't pushed it any further yet. Probably by the end of the week I'll set my tape up for everything past 65 yards.

    40 is as far as I'm confident. I don't shoot enough to reach out further. I like to hunt the thick spots so most of my shots are less than 20.

    Dang! Opening day is in 4 weeks! I'll miss this one. First time in years. I'm usually lucky on opening day.
