Andrew — It strikes me that you have been burdening yourself with the two best-known “most difficult possible archery obstacles” — work UP to a Hill style, don’t try to start with one … and being overbowed. Natural, unstrained, thought-free shooting and accuracy absolutely must come first. If, after we have that mastered we can and want to move up in weight, and/or move to a more challenging bow design … well, running comes easiest to those who first learn to walk. I have always been challenged with similar urges, but happily not in archery. IMHO 😀 I envy how you are shooting now and encourage you to hunt with the same equipment.
A young man fears that if he doesn’t hurry, he will miss something. An old man knows that to hurry too much is to risk missing everything. 😯 COM
