That's some fantastic shooting!
At what distance were you shooting at?
We practice with our compounds out to80 yards.
Recurves, while entertaining, I don't shoot past 40.
They just don't have the accuracy for me.
I sent you a pm so I can help you get your rest issue figured out.
In the meantime, get Joe bell's book TECHNICAL BOWHUNTING.
It shoes you how to tune a bow to get optimal arrow flight and accuracy.
There's also a few tidbits from randy ulmer in there that are priceless.

I can shoot that accurate around 25ish yards now..Because I'm not pulling back that much weight, I think 35lbs, when I get over 25-30 yards it's not as accurate because my arrows start to drop. I'm trying to work my weight up as I go but from not shooting a whole lot until last week I'm just getting back to it...I would loove to get up to your kind of yardage but I doubt that's happening any time soon! Now that I'm in SC there isn't really any where to shoot..I have targets set up in my aunt's garage, it's like maybe 30 yards from the street to the back of the garage and I can shoot that pretty well. I'm trying to set up things different and use little paper targets on the blocks to get more accuracy.

So, I'm stuck with this until I find somewhere I can do shoot here..

Just found this thread, and wondering if anyone has a Hostage rest? I've got a diamond razor edge bow, had it for a couple years and haven't had a problem with the Hostage rest yet BUT my boyfriend has heard from multiple people that its crap. This will be my first year actually hunting deer with my bow and not just shooting for fun, and if I'm going to get a new rest I'd like to get it now so I'm all sighted in and feeling good shooting with it by fall!

This? I have this right now and I'm wanting something new..It's okay, but you can tell cheaply made and that it's not as nice. I'm looking into getting a drop away rest now..I also have the Diamond Razor Edge..Just probably a newer "model" than yours.

Yep that's the one. We were looking at drop away rests today, my guy has one and loves it. We'll see, lots of vet bills right now so a new rest may have to wait. How you do like your bow? I love it. I love that yours is pink camo, mines just regular camo but I got myself a pink camo release to make it a little girly.

I love it, never had any problems with it at all. I had tried a few out but fell in love with the Razor Edge.. I'm little so it being light weight and all fits me perfect...For a beginner bow it's perfect, but I do want to work my way up to a Jewel eventually. I looove those but it will probably be a while before I get one. My bow suits me fine for what I'm doing now, I'm just ready for hunting season!

Very good form!
2 suggestions for you though...
First, tuck your thumb on your release hand. You're going to cut the crap out of your neck if you ever have to let down in a hurry.
Second, move your back foot forward about6", and square up so you're slightly facing the target.
That will help you get your left arm out of the way add the string comes forward at the release, and it will give better support for quick hunting shoots.
Otherwise, fantastic! The deer better have their radar cranked up this year!
Also, I have some information for both you and country last that I cannot post in the open forum that I think will make you both jump for joy like 5 year olds art Christmas morning.

Ohh yeah, I hear the foot thing a lot.. My dad drills me about it all of the time. I process it and then forget about it every time..

I hadn't heard the thumb thing before, when I was first learning to shoot they taught me to use my thumb as an anchor when learning to keep the string to my mouth then it just became habit. I did tend to hit my arm almost every time when I started out but not so much now, I started shooting with just too much weight and my draw length was a little long, now that I've got it settled out I don't hit my arm, I don't hunt with the arm guard on but I do practice with it..

The deer **** sure better watch out this year, I'm hell with a gun already but I'm getting good with my bow.. There will definitely be a new one on the wall!

Hostage style rests have an inherent flaw. They prevent the arrow shaft from is natural oscillation at the shot, which hurts accuracy tremendously.
Fall away rests are much better.
On that subject, I need to discuss an option with you that I think you'll really appreciate.
I also do R&D on new rests.....
