Thanks to Mudbone my bow is shooting a lot better than it was, no 1 foot drop between 20 and 30 yards. Main problem was the nock was higher than the biscuit. I thought it was like that when I got the bow, but I can't be sure. Either way he used the bow square and got it all straightened up and I shot a few times and there is 1 or 2 inch of drop between 20 and 30 yards. All I really need to do is re-adjust the sight and start shooting again so I am good enough for season!

well I just shot in the backyard... tweaked the sight so it is sighted in to 20 yards (sight was a bit off when I left yesterday). My groups are not super tight yet but I got about a 3 or 4 inch group with one of the 3 arrows in the bulls eye.

Backed up to 30 yards and got a 8 to 12 inch drop again.

I dont know what the deal is with my bow but it's starting to piss me off a bit. I thought I just shot at 20 and 30 yesterday and got only a couple inches drop. Now it looks just like it did before.... if I dont get this figured out soon I am putting down the bow and getting a muzzleloader.

I think Mudbone and I got it figured out, the nock is in line with the rest, but the nock is too high on the string... gonna fix that soon and see if the problem is corrected. I think a peep sight and new kisser button are in order as well... I'm not saying Bowriter had it set up wrong, it's just different from what I feel comfortable shooting.... I am learning a bit about bows now, that's for sure

Depends if he has the strength to hold it back as to whether or not he should turn it up.

Have you tried turning it up catman?
