Question by Buck91Hunter. Uploaded on November 02, 2009
Have your bow and equipment tuned and fitted to you by a reputable bow shop. Archery equipment is not like BOOTs, you have to find the pair you like then have it tailored to you personally, in other words "ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!"
Clay said it. I have my bow laser leveled and tuned and paper tuned. Find a routine that works for you and use it every time you shoot. I inhale when i draw find my anchor points while slowly exhaling and then hold my breath while i slowly pull the release. make your own routine and use it every time you shoot
i just think about guiding the arrow and make sure i follow through on the shot
Practice, practice, practice, and work on consistency in your form and release. I started shooting a release this summer after shooting fingers for years, and that helped my groups a lot. Good luck.
I practice an hour a day EVERYDAY when I have access to a "free" range(home). If I have to pay it's at least 3x a week.
One more thing, if you're practicing with an out of tune and unfitted bow, don't expect to hit anything when you really need to!
Shoot as much as possible. Get used to your bow and sights and also make note of the wind and range factors.
Concentrate on being consistant. Make sure you anchor in the same place. Your bow hand should be pushing directly towards your target. Watch your arrow fly to your target. Your release should be smooth and not punched. Concentrate on pulling with your back muscles and not your arms.
Too much to write here. Get a good book and read up.
Like giant whitetail said follow through is huge dont drop your bow until the arrow hits its target. also i forgot to mention to lean into your shot a lot of people tend to lean back when they draw be sure to avoid this and keep a good stance
i jsut found out the less shaking that you do the better the gruops, dont try shoting through stick.
