  1. General Archery Discussion
    For my first bow I got a Bear Species Longdraw in Feb of this year. It's 31" Axle to Axle (ATA), and I have a draw length of about 32". Because of COVID, any coaching has come from Youtube (John Dudley). I've been having some trouble keeping my shots consistent, and after taking some videos of...

    Any pointers, been shooting for a few years now. Hoping my arms didnā€™t get longer šŸ¤£šŸ¤£
  3. General Archery Discussion
    Looking for input on my form, draw length, or anything else you see I should work on. Been shooting since January 2020, but still having trouble feeling consistent with my groups. Bowtech Carbon Icon at 70lbs, Hamskea rest, Black Gold sight, B3 claw release. I just recently installed a nose...
  4. Coaches Corner
    Hey AT crowd, this is my very first time posting on the site and just wanted to jump right into it. I shoot decent but lately I have been having trouble keeping my sights high enough if I don't settle in to my target. Any suggestions? Lmk if you need different angles/pics. Thanks and looking...
  5. Traditional Archery
    Let me know if the slow motion gifs do not work! Disregard the odd background setting, yes I practiced safety during this. We all get rainy days don't we? The drawing and firing gif are seperate because the files were too large. I'm drawing downwards to simulate being on a treestand. My draw is...
  6. Traditional Archery
    Let me know if the gif works! If not I can upload it online.Terrible shot placement and obvious plucking aside, what would you say is wrong with my form here? -I anchor by putting the tip of my index on the corner of my mouth and the thumb knuckle tucked behind my jawbone. I use 3 fingers...
  7. General Archery Discussion
    Recently I picked up a B3 Versa to get in the groove of shooting a new thumb release, however I have noticed that I have to tilt my head quite a bit forward in order to feel comfortable at full draw. With my index release, I can draw my bow, come to my anchor no problem, and begin my shot...

    When I watch high level archers, especially in slow-mo, I see the bow jump forward out of their hand after the release. That part makes sense. They're using a sling and a loose grip and the shot gives the bow forward momentum. But there is also what looks like a prominent push from their bow...

    Good things, however small, often come out of bad situations. For instance, I think the public will be better at reading graphs, and might even understand log scales, because of the interest in quantitative news about the pandemic. My own little upside now is coming out of what looks like a...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Ive only been shooting for about a year and im a novice. Now ive learned that it would be a benefit to shoot according to your dominant eye. Im a left eye dominant, right handed shooter. My question is, should i buy a left handed bow and start from scratch or continue to shoot right handed? Im...

    Anyone wanna share a pic of what proper foot placement looks like when shooting a compound bow, thanks in advance!
  12. General Archery Discussion
    I'm wondering what everyone thinks about bow arm shoulder strength and how much it matters. I have been shooting a bow about 7 years. I am a decent shot, not amazing, but probably better than average. This year, I wanted to take my accuracy to a new level, so I tried to put in a lot of time and...

    Backstory: When I was originally measured for DL, I was measured at 26.5" by two separate local pro shops. Since they both measured me the same, I'm fairly certain they are correct. When I bought my bow though, I was set up at 27", and was advised to use a TruBall Activator release with a BOA...
  14. Archery for the Physically Challenged
    Figured other disabled people would understand the pain issue with trying to get my form perfect so, tell me what you see I could fix. I have a video and no clue how to upload it as well some extra pointers on forum usage would be awesome!

    I had the distinct pleasure of working with Chris Hill on Sunday (Saturday Night his time) via the internet assisted with my bluetooth hearing aids. Chris in Las Vegas and me in Manila, Philippines. It is absolutely amazing what can be accomplished in a short time with proper instruction from a...

  17. Coaches Corner
    So i shoot often. Typically 5-7 days a week at my house and I have improved a lot since I started but I feel like I am stalled out and have days of major regression. Living in the PNW this time of year makes it very difficult to practice because it is dark when I leave for work and dark when I...
  18. General Archery Discussion
    Anyone know of a resource out there for archery that is similar to the handgun's wheel of misfortune? It's a guide that states the common errors that occurs when you consistently are hitting a location outside the X. Example if you consistenty are shooting low right or low left you could be...

    How do I correct a slight lean away from the target? As a note, I am very comfortable with draw weight and bow mass weight. Thank you in advance!
  20. General Archery Discussion
    Hey all, I'm relatively new to archery. About 4 years ago I had an old longbow that didn't even have a brand on it, so I'm not sure where it came from. It was a birthday present from a friend. I shot it for about 4 months, then I lost said bow to an undesirable I used to call brother, but my...
