Seems good... I have always heard that you should try to keep your arm/elbow about even with the arrow shaft. But other them that all looks good!

hi josh, i cant tell much from this pic its a bad angle.... it does look like your leaning some but im not 100% a pic of you shooting a level target will help. 1 close and 1 from every angle... the release looks long but not 100% one thing i do see is arrows on the ground....YOU SHOULD NEVER PICK A ARROW OFF THE GROUND AND SHOOT IT....................... YOU WILL MISS.... MAKE A ARROW HOLDER ...

I just went to Larry Wise, the archery coach, and my elbow was also high...it was because my draw length was too short. Try lengthening your draw a half inch and see if your elbow is more in line with arrow. He says your shoulders should be even, with your body looking like a T.

As long as the your draw elbow is above the arrow line.....is good. Ever watch Michelle Ragsdale, her elbow was almost straight up!! And she can outshoot most of us!
The question is - How are you shooting?

Since I've lowered my elbow and a few other things I get about a 2 or 3 inch group at 20 yards

ok just signed in but I will have a go at ya !
we will start from stance up , young man ..
stand up straight , head over spine , and be tall !
draw length is too long , 1 inch at least
you are not centered over your hips at all
your bow arm / shoulder looks great - leads 1me to belive your draw cycle is smooth and comfortable ,
your elbow is too far behind your head - this works very well for lean , tall , fit , and flexiable archers
again out on a limb open your stance , step back with your right foot , 6 inches
get the weight off your hells !
front foot forward , weight on it - aggressive - head level -( its a tad bit pointing down )
open the angle between the feets
something is very wrong with the draw length , and basic set up with the bow -
your peep coud be low ??
Stand erect and proud , t will clear at least 50% of what i say is a problem .
or let it all ride and enjoy shooting .....
Your T is a week S ..
