Bow tuning for broadheads

Is there anyone in Bismarck other than scheels that does bow tuning. Got my bow back from scheels and they say it is tuned but it won't shoot a broadhead within 8" of the field points and no consistency. Any other options in town?

I find in most cases if the bow won't shoot broadheads the bow itself isn't tuned.  I just recently fixed this for a local gal.  Broadheads wouldn't shoot anywhere near her field points and after tuning it was cutting the fletchings off.

Hunt today like there may be no tomorrow!

Google "Nuts and Bolts of Archery". Has everything you need to know to tune your bow yourself. After following the steps outlined, I wreck arrows trying to shoot groups at 40 yards or less, and I can screw on any fixed or mech head (any of the dozen or so I own anyway) and all have same poi as field points to at least 60 yards. Best of luck.

You might want to try paper testing it first. Tuning bows is relatively simple once you know how to spot the problem in how the arrow acts. Biggest thing I look for is not so much how close they are grouping but how the arrow hit the target and whether or not the arrow stuck in straight or slightly to the side one way or the other. What broadhead are you using?
