Posted by Josh Sidebottom on Oct 13, 2017 12:00:00 PM

Hopefully if you are out there chasing whitetails somewhere across the US you have already gotten your bow dialed in, but in case you just bought a new bow/sight, or are getting a late start on your season everyone should take the time to make sure they are confident in how their bow is shooting before heading to the woods.
