    It is and should continue to be. But human nature is what it is and people sometimes can't accept reality. One older guy I saw was so overbowed that he was at 3/4 draw with a compound, arrow off the rest at 90 degrees and the bow at waist level turning purple trying to get the cam over hill. Sometimes those of us who ought to know better can be worse than anyone, you can't pick up a 60lb compound once a year for your local shoot and expect all to be well. A quiet word of "come on chap pack it up" did the job once the red mist had cleared.

    Yep, I was stood the side of him - not for long though, I hid behind the nearest large object which happened to be my "little" brother. Ha - sorry Phil, couldn't resist.
