| | Well, practice is fi
Well, practice is fine and dandy but if you are not prtniicacg right, then you are wasting your time. Practice as follows:1. Make sure your bow is tuned by someone that knows what they are doing.2. Determine if you will shoot fingers or a release.3. Figure out a comfortable steady stance in which to shoot, later on you will want to practice from a ton of different positions to simulate real shooting conditions.4. Determine a comfortable draw weight for you to be able draw back consistently and silently.5. Find anchor point on which you will hold at full draw and make sure you draw back to it every single time you draw your bow.6. Do not grip the bow with the bow hand when shooting. You hand should be loose and free at full draw. Otherwise you will torque the bow.7. Start at 20 yards and go back farther and farther until you cannot accurately shoot groups inside the size of a paper plate, which is roughly the size of an animals kill zone.8. Breath steadily until the shot. I hold my breath and then let a little out right before I shoot, like rifle hunters do.9. Follow through. Keep aiming at the target even after you release the arrow. This will stabilize you bow and will keep you from adding any torque to the shot.10. When using a release, you will want to use back tension to pull the trigger. Meaning, keep full draw and then by squeezing your shoulder blades together you will pull your finger into the release trigger. You do not want to pinch or hit the trigger.11. Confidence is huge in archery. Envision hitting the bullseye. If you believe you will drill it, then you are much more likely to do so!12. Have patience! Bow hunting and shooting can take a long while, possibly even seasons to hone your skills.13. HAVE FUN!!!!!-If you aren't having fun, they why do it?Good luck and it is great to see new hunters taking off where others have started!
