women most always concentrate more than we do. Heck.. she has better shooting form than I do!! Looks like a good time!

Great Chuck! :cheers:

Her draw length still needs to be shortened. True. :)
Ever get the idea that DSG is the Simon Cowell of this site??lol

If'n she is printing good groups and is comfortable with what she's shootin, I say more power to er!

Not that I watch american Idol or anything.. :hysterical:
I totally agree.. I understand DSG's advice and agree w/it. Jus a little friendly ribbing on the cowell statement. ;)

As you say though, 2" too long may be making it more difficult for her than it needs to be. I guess if you randomly looked at 5 or 10 different people shoot, you might notice subtle differences in everyones form. A person who didnt know who Jim Furyk was would be extremely surprised watching him take a few practice swings and then learn that he shot 5 under last weekend in the Players Championship at the very difficult TPC course at Sawgrass!!

Ultimately, what really counts , least in an ethical hunting situation, is being able to deliver a clean, humane, quick/kill shot. If she is just starting out, prolly better to get the proper draw length, start developing good habits off the git-go. :)

One more thing, bout the DSG thingy.. for those of you that dont watch american idol (and believe me, I dont know HOW I got started watching, other than I love music) Simon Cowell is always the one judge that does not sugar-coat his critique of the performances. He is blunt, honest, to the point and usually has the best advice. Drawing this analogy to Kurt is in my mind a compliment... its what I like about him.
