    I trimmed my feathers this morning because I didn't think I needed such tall feathers for 100 yards. The first shots this afternoon went 30 yards farther than yesterday holding on the same mark. I found them all in the beanfield behind the target. I noticed the bow had taken more set in the bottom limb where I had cut around a knot. I flipped it over and made the lower limb the top limb. It shot better that way even though the bow is curved to the other side. I held the bow kinda sideways and it shot good. I was getting about 10 inches penetration in the excelsior bale.
