While practicing at 30 meters today, I was frustrated by variability of my aiming point. In the course of 36 arrows, my aiming point dropped by about 18 inches on the target face.
That the aiming point dropped means either one or both of two things:
1. My draw length was getting longer.
2. The bow was getting stiffer.
I can imagine the wood in the bow getting stiffer with lower temperatures, but the temperature remained rather constant during that time period, from about 2:00 in the afternoon to about 2:45.
So something in me or the bow was changing, and it’s important to know what. If it was something I was doing, then I can make it stop. If it’s something in the bow, I can compensate for it.
At the moment, I have no idea. If you have any ideas, drop me a line!
