Drawing a bow and letting it down will hurt your shoulder more than just shooting . I have bone spur that causes bursitis in my shoulder , and it hurts more when I'm drawing a letting down several times .
Like others have mentioned a few times already . Don't draw it unless you plan on shooting . ;\)

It does hurt more in the shoulder when I am trying to slowly let it down. Thanks.

IMO archery and bow hunting requires a lot of patience.
The slower you go from the pont of deciding which bow to purchase,where to purchase it from, what items to install, what arrows to shoot, stand to shoot from, etc. etc, the better off you will be.

Hunting season is a long way off,and there is plenty of time to be fully prepared. Bow hunting is not a sprint, it's a patience thing.

Find a good local bow shop that will take the time to help you is good advise.
Also, don't draw a bow without an arrow in it,and in a place you can and plan to relese it.

This thing is not a new toy.

The patience thing is even more important when it's time to actually bow hunt. Have to remain calm, in control,and patient.
Seeing a deer, any deer will give you the shakes, before, during and after the first shot.

Or at least is should.

Good luck and slow down.

It's all about the hunt.
Taking game is just a bonus.

It's the Indian,and not the Arrow.

Exellent advise from the others. So as several have posted just take your time and don't over do it. If you feel the need to practice throughout the summer I wouldn't go any more than a couple or three days a week at least a day apart. This will give your muscles time to recover. It's kinda like weight lifting, you have to build up to it. That's the main purpose in practicing IMO.

Have y'all ever known anybody that goes full bore into something if it interest them? I've been this way since I was a kid. First it was sharks and dinosaurs, then golf and fishing, then astronomy, then guitar, then partying and girls, now hunting Odocoileus Virginianus etc. etc. I am probably slightly OCD and it is to my benefit in most cases. If I get fascinated by something, I will spend hours learning all I can about that something or spend hours practicing. I didn't become a scratch golfer over night. I have been a student of the game since I was 10 years old. Archery is something I have locked into. It is something I can do year round plus I can harvest some deer while I am at it. I can't slow down, it is not my nature.

Seriously, I am the same way. I am one of the laziest people you will ever meet except when it comes to hunting especially shooting and tinkering with my bow. Its addicting once you get in the swing of things. Good to hear.

patience grasshopper

Just don't overdo it and enjoy it . Practice is good , too much can lead to injury , especially if you are currently feeling pain .
Practicing when you are tired will also lead to poor shooting form . Practicing bad habits is counter productive .
We would all like to see you remain healthy to enjoy this bow season , not end up in surgery .
