May move to a 2 pin sliding sight but in no rush. i am lucky enough to be able to shoot daily (unless it stays -20) so hoping to keep up the 50-100 shots per week till hunting season.

    Since you are happy with the release then in order of importance to me would be to get:

    * Whisker Biscuit - Quiet, secure, nothing to break or mess up, and no noticeable difference of FPS

    * Sight - especially for new bowhunters I'd go with a fixed three pin and medium sized protected fibre optics. Look to higher end product with third axis adjustment.

    * Quiver - Tight Spot makes some nice ones but there are others too - quiet and room for five arrows.

    * String and Cables

    No matter how good you shoot at targets most important is to ONLY take shots within your 100% certain comfort zone - for me that means 25 yards on deer, 30 for elk for starters. Oh and get out to shoot as many 3-D courses as possible.

    Welcome to the brother/sisterhood!! Its addicting!
