Flinching is "usually" the result of anticipating the shot going off and your form starting to collapse a fraction before the shot actually goes off.
most people will probably tell you to use a back tension release aid so that it's harder to anticipate the shot going off and gives you more of a surprise release.
Good luck with it !

I do the same thing if im shooting when im tired. Lost quiet a few arrows this way. What is a good back tension release to start with? I never have used one. Would it be wise to use a back tension release for hunting?

Unfortunately i have no idea, i flinch occasionally myself, but i can't use a back tension release, i shoot a lot worse when i try to use one.

My wife was having a flinching problem. She was associating pulling the trigger with shooting a gun which was going to recoil. She started using her middle finger to trigger the release and the flinching has completely disappeared.

I've also lost many arrows in the back yard usally first arrow is right on the spot so I don't plan on trying aback tension until after the season sure is frustating when it happens though ten I just start thinking about it.Thanks Rick
