i would get back in touch with your uncle. its easier to show you in person than try to explain it on here. you have to find a pivot point somewhere on your face so you will shoot from the same spot every time. and you may have to take it to a shop so they can adjust your draw lenght. they may even recomend a kisser button so you can have another consistent pivot point. that is a good idea for a new bow hunter

When Buckfever says pivot point what he means is the anchor point, that's the location of your Bow string every time you draw back. He also mentioned a kisser button that's a small rubber disk that can be placed on the bow string so that every time you draw back the kisser button will ALWAYS be your anchor point and the kisser button should always be anchored at the corner of your mouth that way you'll be using the same anchor point every time you draw back and that's how you develop and maintain accuracy. have a shop install the kisser button for you.

Good luck to you....

keep your finger off the triger till its time to shoot.what brand/style release is it I shoot a tru fire caliper style with a wrist strap.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

get rid of the loop and switch to a wrap around rest, and keep your finger behing the trigger till you are fully aimed and on target the Winn archery free flight is the only release i use.
