    I make my own soaps, candles, lip balms, scented powder, etc. Since it draws on the same skill set, I recently made my own string wax.

    I tried some let-down drills today. It's the first time I have done them, so it's hard to be sure, but they seem to have helped. I will keep them up, when I practice.

    I stopped dropping my arm when I stopped looking for the arrow to reach the target. After I release, I hold steady until I hear it.

    My timing is off

    The timing with which I release my arrow is inconsistent. That is to say, sometimes I know when it feels right, let the arrow fly & hit what I aimed at. Thankfully, this is happening more often of...

    I think it's cool to do it once, just to say you've done it. After that, it's just a waste of arrows. Still, as a new archer, I can understand someone's excitement over their first "Robin Hood".
