I've been shooting my "target" bows only since Nov. I plan to turkey hunt with a bow some this year so I broke out my Drenalin this afternoon. Pins are still dialed in out to 60yds and it felt great. I like the 5 pin sight even though I've never shot at an animal with anything other than the top pin \:D

Tomorrow evening I'll pop my blind up in the backyard and shoot out the windows a bit.

My first shot at 30yds I did use my top pin since I'm so accustomed to using a single pin for 3D/target

For Turkeys , focus on shooting at 20 yards or less. I like to drop my poundage a little too.

Good idea Scott.

I like to set a decoy at 20yds facing my blind.

Sweet, I wish I could shoot my bow. It has been over a week and Dickson Sportsman hasn't gotten my cam in yet. I have also heard to drop the poundage down for turkey hunting. I haven't been turkey hunting before, but I heard with a bow there can be long periods at full draw.

It's not the holding weight, it's the awkward angles you have to draw. Sitting in a blind or on the ground can make drawing tougher. I can draw my bow at dead level sitting flat on my butt with it at 70lbs. I still drop it to ~64lbs when it's time to hunt just in case.

I tried that at my current draw weight and couldn't do it, but how am I to get stronger. I believe that once a desired draw weight is reached than one should be able to draw that weight from all positions. I am trying to build up strength so I can't pass the sitting on my butt test.

I drove out to my hunting area to setup my portable blind and broke a rod near the hub......... bummer. I can't set the blind up without all of the rods installed , so I just cleared out an area hoping to get another blind up . \:\(

I have a blind you can borrow if you need it. It's a hunters specialties 10/10 blind.
