I’m 64 years old and have enjoyed shooting and hunting with a bow since I was 19. In my thirties I pulled 80 lbs. but that has declined over the years to 60 lbs. Everything still works; shoulders, arms, and elbows, but they are showing the abuse I’ve given them over the years. I’m not as steady on target as I once was and I’m dealing with a slight case of target panic; however, I did get two deer this year. I started looking at crossbows but soon decided I did not want to give up my Mathews Drenalin LD. I was intrigued by the Draw-Loc when I saw it on the Internet. After a few emailed questions to Hickory Creek Archery, I ordered the Draw-Loc. It was easy to install and adjust. I’m able to keep my sight pin on the target, and I’m very impressed with the accuracy I’m achieving. At 25 yards I only shoot a couple of arrows at a spot because of the number of nocks I have broken. I may never shoot a deer at 50 yards but I’ve shot a few 3 arrow, 2-inch groups at that distance.
The Draw-Loc lacks some of the primitive joy of drawing an arrow to my cheek and releasing it, but next deer season it will be on my bow while hunting.
