Thread: Pre shot routines?????

    Pre shot routines?????

    I am wondering if you all have a pre shot routine that you go though for each shot. What do you do before drawing and before releasing the arrow??

    Set grip on bow.
    Draw.
    Reset grip on bow, tuck down bow arm shoulder, relax grip on bow.
    Elevate elbow on other arm.
    Press bow hand heel into grip and pull on release.(squeeze shoulders together)
    Concentrate on maintaining position after release and focus on target until arrow hits.
    Duck or Bleed.

    Make sure chickens and dogs are out of the way, ( backyard range)
    Check tip for tightness
    Check feet
    Look at target
    Take a deep breath
    Draw bow keep light pressure on grip let grip settle in hand
    Let out half of breath
    Aim
    Let it go

    Visaully check my grip, 1 deep breath, exhale and release when target shooting. When hunting I try to remember to exhale then release.

    That about covers it. Well said.

    First thing i do is make sure I'm gripping the bow correctly. That's my biggest source of inaccuracy; if I'm holding the bow wrong. Then it's draw, anchor, and slowly raise the pin till it's on the target. I also have to consciously tell myself to relax my release hand and slowly squeeze the trigger. Then "THWACK" -- dead deer.
