    Start slow and have patience with yourself. Learn proper shooting form and technique. Practice the right things so that you develop good repeatable habits. That way, when that buck, doe or turkey comes within range the shot will be almost automatic.

    http://www.3dshoots.com/ This website has a locater for all 3d shoots nationwide. It is great fun and the best form of practice. My daughter and I go to them all summer. Check it out just click on "Find Shoots" at the top.
    Chuckles is right about equipment and pro-shops. I use Maxima hunter arrows and they are awesome. They cost more but I don't lose or break as many as with my old arrows (Easton Axis). In the end that makes them less expensive. Using a practice target that has multiple bullseyes and shooting only 1 arrow at each bull will save you some money also.

    Make sure your bow is properly tuned before you start practicing.

    First, buy good arrows, rest, sight, etc! I spent more on that stuff than the bow itself and have never regretted it. Crappy equipment yields poor results especially in archery. You can expect to pay upwards of $100.00 for a dozen arrows. They are worth it! Try not to cry when the first one gets lost or broken. It will make it much easier to take when the second and third disappear.
    Second, have it set up correctly by a reputable archery shop so you can be pretty confident that equipment issues are not causing you to shoot poorly.
    Third, do not try to shoot to0 much draw weight to start. You have plenty of time before hunting season. Have it set to a weight that you can draw relatively easily so you can learn good form before starting to crank it up.
    Fourth, practice, practice, practice. Do not forget to practice outdoors, in low light, in the wind and from elevated platforms or your stand if possible.
    Enjoy! It is so much fun and most everyone you meet at archery ranges or shops will be friendly and willing to help. You will encounter a lot of different opinions! Try lots of different techniques and use what works for you.

    When I started shooting I had a bad pattern of about 5in. After about a month I had to stop shooting as much, I was spliting nocks and hitting fletching. So just stick with it, get to the range, and hit the woods!

    Lots of practice! Once you get comfortable shooting, put yourself in different hypathetical hunting situations and shoot from different angles and distances.
