Thats what I have now.
Marked up a piece of tape. Just got to thinking some white paint pen or scribe would make for a little cleaner.
Id think the tribute may be disqualified for comp. due to the machined lines for center shot.
Shot the field course, with a guy this Friday. I think I will get into some events. Probably shoot my satori or JCA riser though, or pick up a 27 riser. Shooting a 72 bow sure felt nice.
I wont ever sell the tribute. Itll be wearing spray paint real soon. This here seems about the most perfect hunting set up I could ever dream of besides a wood bow.
I notice the 2 guys I shot with anchor much higher. This gave them a much closer point on and many more references, ie plunger, shelf , wire rest for gap shooting. I may have to try and move up with anchor. My jaw line and thumb are just what comes natural when settling in

What kind of point on do the rest of you work with? If I could get around 30 yards I think Id be in much better shape. With a 48 yard point on all my shots in the woods are way up in space.

I found Big Jims youtube video showing how he does so using the barge . I think I will follow along with your advice.

Hopefully the beaver tail shows up soon. Excited for that project. Been back and forth a few times and shooting off the riser is much more consistent. Although square is not a natural position of my hand. Used some sugru to bring the arrow side to a point and build a slightly higher wrist. Got it trimmed up and a sharp edge for hand reference. Real happy

Got calf hair on the shelf that looks sharp and negates any arrow noise.

Been trying to cut weight. Crazy how unstable the bow feels without something. Ive settled into a 4” stab with 6oz without the internal weight.
Got my new max 6s on 51# at 31” on a 19 and realized Im a sissy. Still have to have limb bolts backed almost all the way out to feel right. .120 positive tiller and 7” brace w/ a .375 crawl for good anchors has me at 45yard point on with 620 grain finished arrow.

My gapping sucks and is not consistent enough for me to hit the woods so I added a pin. Kind of embarrassing . It will be gone by next year.
Got a beiter plunger on the way but may not run it as this free flyte has proven sufficient.
Also found an eagle flight 4 arrow strap on.
Real close to finished and ready. There was a bite to the air this morning and I can not even put into words how excited I am to watch the sunrise in the elk woods next month with this rig.

Hopefully the beaver tail transfers the ergo of this grip.

As much center shot the tribute is I would opt for a standard length plunger, no stubby. Beaver tail should conform well around your riser and shim.
Looks like your figuring out how you want the bow.
Yeah itís been brisk a few nights here and gives me the itch also.

Nothing to be embarrassed about, putting a sight pin on your bow if that makes you ready for this hunting season.
