Ok, never shot a bow in my life till last night. My uncle gave me an older Darton and I decided to pull it out after splitting wood last night. Now I've never, ever shot a bow in my life, let alone had someone show me but I got an idea on the basics. Started at 10yds, the sights were low and to the left but it was consitent. So I got to adjust them tonight. I figured that's a good thing, I must be doing something right. Never missed till I got out to a little over 30yds. So how close are you bow hunters getting on black bears on average? I'm hoping if I can keep practicing and get confident out to 30 yds I might take it with me at the end of May.
I have no idea what poundage it's shooting, but I know my friend that has no problem with a 28" draw and 55lbs can;t pull mine back at all. I regret using teh barn as a backstop. The one that missed, well it's buried far enough thru the wall that I can't get it out
