yep, I do.
You can use an eliminator button or soft kisser where your nose should touch. Then touch that with your nose. Also, shorten your loop and lengthen your draw. Some bows are too short for me to be comfortable.
Nose to string for me. Just easier to have a repeatable shot.
I do as well, when I got a shorter ATA bow I had to add 1/2" dl so I could touch the tip of my nose again. Groups tightened up then.

I'm a nose touching the string guy.
I am forced to, I have a big nose.

I don't, never have. My anchor position on my jawline is solid and I center my scope housing in the peep. Those two references are sufficient for me. Touching nose to string just doesn't feel right to me since I never have in the past - probably has to do with learning to shoot and wearing glasses, never could get string to nose without tipping head down a little and having my glasses slide down so got into the habit if keeping my head up slightly and then couldn't reach nose to string. I wear contacts now but haven't found a need to touch my nose to the string when the other two anchor references already line everything up. Just me though, I know several who do touch string to nose.
I use my nose and a kisser. Doesnt hurt to have that extra reference point.
Even with my 29'' ata bow madness im still able to put my nose on my string. Must be my big honker. Someone said peep may be too low, but wouldnt being too high create more distance between the string and nose on shorter ATA bows??

I use the string on my nose, with a knot set tied to touch the bottom of my nose...very repeatable.
I do. But that doesnt mean that your string will touch your nose. There are some variables involved.
One is DL. The other is A2A. Lastey, is your build and shooting form.
Match your rig to da gig.
Everyone PLEASE remember to flex your arrows every time prior to loading them into your bow.
I do. The more touch points for references you have the better off you are. But that's just me. go to youtube and watch Albina Loginova from Russia shoot. She doesn't touch her nose. She's a former world champion.

Potential is interesting, performance is everything.
I touch my nose, but 37" ata is the shortest bow I will shoot.
Haven't had my nose on the string since I sold my Ultra Elite with 3500 limbs on it. Everything else, the string angle doesn't allow for it, and also allow me to maintain proper posture and form. I do use an 'E' button as a kisser on most of my bows.
Not about to lenghten my DL with just so I can touch the string with my nose. Whatever problem that will 'fix', will cause a whole lot more problems for everything else.
There's not much of a lesson to be learned the second time a calf kicks you in the balz.
I touch my nose to the string, and for what it's worth, Skeeter 58 was not saying to change your draw length. He stated there could be other variables to look at! The funny thing is MOST archers THINK they have the correct draw length when in actuality they could lose or gain a 1/2" and be better off! When shooting whether touching your nose or not, you should not "lean" your head into the string or into your peep, too many people do this and think they have the correct draw length!

Most guys who have trouble already have their peep in the string, the key is to put a piece of masking tape on the string that you can slide up and down the string and close your eyes and draw the bow. Open your eyes and see if the tape is in the right place and then move it if it isn't. If you try to use your current peep position and touch your nose you will have trouble and things will not feel right. Of course you need a appropriate drawlength but I know guys with appropriate draw lengths who struggle because of peep problems and they refuse to even consider moving it.
I have always touched my nose but going to the 2012 Carbon Element RKT has prevented me from doing so... The string anlge is very strong and I am thinking this is why. It seams like the draw on the 28" on a Hoyt is true or Bowtechs are long. Thing is with the Hoyt my anchor is right at my lip end or 1/4 passed it so (perfect) so to add .5 inch I think maybe be a hinderance more then a help. I put a kisser on and seamed to have fixed the issue despite no nose to string contact and shooting is still very accurate.
My bows are 40.5 to 41.75" ata and I use my beak, bows are getting so short, I dont see how getting boogers on your string is possible.
I just started using a thumb release and it so happens the string hits the tip of my nose - i love it another anchor point (dont know about hunting with a face mask though)
Problem solved my brothers I just needed to change my draw length buy a half inch to 26.5 And raise my peep sight slightly.
