I start about really shooting about 4 months before the season. Just start by putting arrows on a target, don't worry too much about being super accurate, that will come. Just work on perfect form and building the muscles. Then about two months before, start really working on grouping and accuracy. About one month before, I start really hitting the target with broadheads to get my final accuracy dialed in. Then during the season, when I don't get to shoot in the field, I come home a toss a few everyday just to keep the muscles in shape. Has worked so far, 17 seasons, and 13 elk!

I shoot year round. I shoot a lot of 3D shoots spring through early fall. Shooting at 3D targets is the best way to prepare yourself for the real deal.

ok - I'll be the one to digress from the pack....In Virginia, bow season opens in October. I'll look to pick my bow up at the end of July to start tuning. Once tuned (which generally takes a couple days because I think I tune to a finer degree than most) target practice begins. Then about a month out I strap on the broadheads and tune them up.

In terms of physical conditioning, I lift weights year round. So conditioning is never really an issue.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!

You never stop if you want to continue to improve. Once you have the long range mojo, you must keep shooting to maintain proficiency.
