So I finally got my new bow and shot some this weekend. On the plus side, I was very consistent...very consistently missing. I think I am having some trouble with shoulder alignment, since some of my shots it just felt right and I didn't have any trouble whatsoever holding at my anchor before releasing. But sometimes my bow arm would start shaking almost as soon as I got to anchor. Does anyone have any tips that might help me make sure my shoulder alignment is good (or tell me if that is not the problem).
Also, I am finding that my 2nd-4th shot are pretty consistent, a decent group I think, but my first and fourth shot are not consistent with the others. I can't tell if the fact that I am trying to aim is resulting in that or if it is something else.
Should I even really be aiming at this point (basically my first couple of experiences with archery)?
Thanks for any and all help!
(Thankfully I didn't get the 40# bow. The Pinnacle came in just at 35# at 28" [my draw is apparently 1/8th of an inch shorter than that at the moment], and I still need to take a minute after 5 arrows and can only shoot for about 45 minutes before I notice that I've just lost the strength to hold long enough to go through the mental checklist before loosing).
