That is very cool. We need more pics like that. It would bring up alot of comparisons and such. Good shots.

keep up the practice start moving out farther and try to wear your gear you will be hunting in.also make sure all your field tips weight the same as your broadheads those look like older aluminum arrows,are they heavy?you may want to try carbons down the road

I am a big Muzzy fan especially the 100 gr. I will be using the MX3 this year. Practice with what your going to hunt with. Separate out three of your broadheads and use those for practice. They will probably tear up your target so be carefull of the background area. You may find the broadheads and field points have slightly different impact points. Fine tuning the broadheads may be necessary. Eventually that target wil have a big hole right through it! 30 yd shot is a long shot for most bowhunters with a lot of practice time! Be sure you can make the shot or pass for a better one.

This is a great looking setup and I'm glad you posted the pics because it allows us to see things that (as a beginner) you wouldn't normally notice.

It looks like your sting Loop is way too long. If you took the bow into a shop to have it tuned I'm surprised they didn't notice that.
The length of the loop can really play havoc on your shooting accuracy.
As an example, lets say you have a 28" draw length and your loop measures 1 inch, well now you'd be shooting with a 29 inch draw, I'm sure you understand that wouldn't be right.
I hope that makes sense to you but then again, IF you feel as if you're shooting ok with it the way that it is, it's perfectly fine to keep it that way but if you think there may be room for improvement in your shooting then I'd have it shortened. You'll be amazed at how these little adjustments can sometimes make such a big difference.

Good Luck and keep us posted especially when you get that nice Buck this season..

P.S. Those Muzzy broadheads you're using are awesome, If the deer even see them they just about Drop dead from fear...

Welcome and good luck! The first encounter with a deer with a bow can is exciting, better watch out you don't get a case of buck fever, if you do don't worry it usually wear’s off in a day or two. :)
