Great advice all around!  Thanks guys. 

I have shot in the past after a day of working in the woods, when the whole body is pretty tired and I have been going uphill and down.  You're right, it definitely makes it realistic.  What I might do is a few sprints up and down the street to get the heart rate up and then see if I can keep good form.

Might look at trying a shot gun 23 yards will be good practice for your turkey hunting this spring

I wish!  Work is killing me this April.  I think the gobblers are safe from me this year, unfortunately.  Going to save my time off for chasing elk and deer around this Sept and Oct.  Good luck to you, though, if you are going out with shotgun and calls in hand!

Watch some John Dudley videos.  Just don't go out and shoot shoot with a purpose always working on something.

100% I used to golf a lot then picked up archery and its like the exact same emotional roller coaster.  You hit a great shot perfectly straight then the next one is off and you're left reeling and trying to figure out what happened.  That damn brain if I could just shut it off some times haha
