"That's exactly right," he said brightly. "Aiming is way overrated. Don't feel bad. Most target archers--and almost all hunters--make the same mistake. Here's the thing. Aiming, the attempt to guide the pin back to the bull's-eye, doesn't decrease movement. It increases it. Worse, it causes your bow arm to do one of three things: soften, tighten, or collapse. And then your shot is toast, because 95 percent of misses are actually caused by mistakes in the bow arm. That's what drives the shot. If you finish the shot and notice your bow arm going up or down, or off to either side, you're screwed. Because the shot goes where the bow arm directs it. So you want to drive the arm forward. Steady pressure right into the target. Drive that arrow home." This was news to me. I have shot thousands of arrows, and a good many deer, during which time I have paid more attention to National Pickle Week than to my bow arm.
