Not to poke fun or step on toes but just so many of the questions I see on here could be easily answered by just taking the bow out and doing some experimentation. Don't people know how to do that anymore?
I think they know how to experiment, but sometimes asking the right question can save a lot of time.Not to poke fun or step on toes but just so many of the questions I see on here could be easily answered by just taking the bow out and doing some experimentation.

Best answer, not kissing butt, just truth!👍On top of what others said, I also think it's simply time and skill. Some people, like myself, don't have the luxury to shoot in their backyard and there are times when I can't make it to the range for weeks. And, for beginners, experimenting may not be able to tell them much if their form and aim are not good.
It's hard to get anything out of experimentation without repetition and consistency. The most I learned about my shooting was when I was able to make it to the archery shop for indoor leagues and when my commute took me by an archery range with field ranges. Being able to compare scores while experimenting is huge.
He/She is in the RIGHT Place to ask!I think the more pressing related question is why the same thing gets asked repeatedly instead of just searching for the topic which has likely been beaten to death already?!
Some elements of archery are common to all, or at least most archers, and asking questions of others is the quickest and best way to learn: As others have pointed out, ability to learn from others is responsible for most human progress in nearly all areas of endeavor. There is benefit in searching old threads: It's quicker than asking a question and then waiting until people respond, and you benefit from the insights of many archers who may no longer be active on this site. There's also benefit in asking the question again in a new thread, as some of the folks who respond may have different insights than those who responded to past threads.i started out thinking one thing, but I can clearly see some good on all sides of this question - now.
