Paper Tuning a Bow
The first step in paper tuning your bow is to set up a second target in front of your primary archery target. The second target is used to hold the paper you will be shooting through. This stand can simply be several scrap pieces of wood driven into the ground on either side of your target about four feet in front of it. Tape a piece of newspaper to the wood and shoot an arrow through the paper and into the target. Use the diagram to the right to interpret the paper and make adjustments accordingly, remember to make small changes and then re-test.
If your bow is in tune this is what you will see, the arrow shaft centered around the fletching.
Move your arrow nocking point down or your rest up.
Move your arrow nock up or your rest down.
Move your arrow rest out away from the bow. If this does not correct the problem try backing the weight of your bow off, choose a stronger (stiffer) arrow, or decrease your point weight.
Move your rest towards your bow. If this does not correct the problem try increasing your draw weight, go to a less stiff arrow or increase your point weight.
You may have a combination of more than one problem resulting in many different paper "prints". Work on the two problems separately and make small changes.
