Tie a d-loop
Is this easy to do? Or should I just take it in to the shop?
I picked up my target bow yesterday and the d-loop is about 3/4" to long. I want to shorten it and I have never done one before. But if I look it up online how to tie a d-loop is this something that is fairly simple to do?
Also if you have sites that explain where to tie them please share.

Dont bother with the shop, tying a loop is a breeze.
May take a few trys to get the proper length... but once you do it...its like riding a bike.
the pointy end goes toward the target

Since previous posts have covered the actual tying very well, I would like to add, be sure to wax the loop material and use a set of D-loop pliers or at least a set of needle nose pliers to tighted the loop. If you find the loop material stretching, PM redhdcharm (use the search function at the top of the page) and she will provide material which will not stretch. Good luck.

Very easy to do yourself.

I fray and melt 1 end of the cord, cut to 4" and then fray and melt the other end. You end up with a overall length of 3 3/4-7/8" of loop material and this makes a nice short loop which is my preference.

I will never use a tie-on loop again after using the knotless loop. They cinch down tighter and last forever.

Just loosen the bottom knot, and pull some through to make it shorter, re-cut and melt the end and Your all set...
