Sorry for the delay guys. I went ahead and moved the shims from the right side to the left and vise versa. I did this awhile back when I was getting a bad left tear so the shims are now back in their original position. I have moved the cable rod in a few different positions and can't say I've seen a noticeable difference.Those just mean your bow is in spec not tuned. If you want to clean up that tear you’re going to have to shim those cams and possible adjust the cable rod to correct it.
Shoot at the clean side of your target. Fletched arrows should be going in parallel. If not you have fletching contact somewhere. I'd also guess you are choking the bow grip right after the shot. Get a bow wrist strap so you don't worry about dropping the bow. Find a reasonably comfortable and repeatable hand position that is not deep into the "V" of your hand. You should be able to tune the bow to you. Don't tune the bow to a hooter shooter if you can't repeat the form of a hooter shooter. That said, if it is factory spec and the hooter shooter can't get a bullet hole then it's time to shim.
After switching the cams back to their original positions the fletched arrows are parallel in the target. I have a wrist strap on the way. I ditched the wrist strap a couple bows ago but will give it a go with this one. I have also been working on a more comfortable, natural, and repeatable grip. Between that and switching the shims it seems to be helping, as the photos below show.
so have you changed the poundage of your bow or point weight yet?
I have not changed the poundage yet. I started with the first suggestion of grip and shims. I feel I am close and did not want to change everything at once. See photos/videos below.
Guys I’m gonna say this again. You cannot tune a bow with improper or at least consistent form. A guy I teach with is multiple time state champ. His grip is technically wrong but he executes it exactly each time. In a sense improper grip but it’s not torturing it changing a thing. Still easier to learn proper form. He understands and teaches that.
Besides the physical attributes the actuall shooting also comes into play. Where the video? Without it we could only guess.
See videos below.
Is there tape or something on your grip?

Yes there is lizard tape on the grip.
Below are 3 videos of me drawing and shooting. I have numbered the shots through paper so that you can see the results of those shots. They were taken from 12 feet away from the paper.
Shot 4 on the paper was taken during the picture behind me. Shots 5 and and 6 were after the camera was put away.
The next two pictures show my grip. This picture was the most telling to me as the difference in my grip (Thumb direction and knuckle angle) is obvious. I believe this is where my problems are coming from but these tears are much much better than they were just one week ago after reading your feedback and focusing on a comfortable, relaxed, and repeatable grip.
The final picture is fletched arrows into the target at 20 yards.
Again, sorry for the delay. Everyone's help has been much appreciated. Critique away gentlemen.
I'm having a hard time getting the videos to post. Any pointers here?
