Half an inch is probably too big of an adjustment if you are close. I bare shaft tune with one unfletched and two fletched shafts. I also have heard that many people bare shaft tune at 20 yards.

Here is an update. 2 bare and 2 fletched at 10 yards.
Finished arrow weight about 560 grains. FOC I calculated at 15 - 16%
Next I will get outside at 15, then 20.

Shooting tab, 3 finger under, anchoring index finger to bottom of cheek bone under the eye.
Question, is it normal to have impact point to the left like that? Its about 7 inches to the left and 7 inches high of what I was aiming at (top yellow).

If you are just learning and right handed, that would be normal.
Looks like your tune is good.

are you right handed but left eye dominant? Or, do you have a condition that when you are tired, the left eye becomes the dominant one (that drove me crazy until I heard someone mention it).
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.

Yeah left eye dominant and shooting right handed - close my left eye when I use the point to shoot.

I have the same issue. Took me a bunch of work to overcome it.
