Just stop it, Dave. You know I have a weakness for short bows and Elkseekers. I guess I'm only comforted by the news today that I will be needing another root canal/crown very soon...that oughta swallow up any new bow money I might have scraped up.
You really need one Kirk..... it just blowed the snot out of all the others. Plus we need another build along....

No doubt about that. 🎯👏

Well.... Today I wasnt shooting well... I was trying to tune the back up but I just wasnt having the best of days and wasnt having the consistency to make accurate adjustments. Pro tip: Dont tune when you are having a bad day... I gave up on tuning for the day but I still wanted to shoot. Normally i can switch between bows and shoot a few arrows and be right on the money.... but today wasnt my day.... until I grabbed my elkseeker. This bow has officially ruined me look out for my review shortly. My groups went from 8 inches at 20 yards to consistently 2 inch. My last group of the day was a 1 inch group at 30 yards. I quickly ended the shooting day there rather than push my luck further. The point is I'm being an Indian giver to you all sorry... I see no point in shooting anything but my elkseeker.... I'm building a relationship with this bow unlike anything I have ever had and I just cant shoot my other bows the same. I will tune a back up should the need arise but only if it arises. I mean I am a string builder so I definitely have back up strings. Until then its elkseeker or nothing. I should have my points in next week and I will tune the elkseeker arrows for you all. Linjed below is the article I use to tune. I was attempting to try the clay hayes method this time but I'm going back to my bread and butter. No need to worry about nock direction you shoot groups and it's pretty easy. Results have always been good. Enjoy!
