    Hi, I was shooting yesterday and noticed as I got more tired I shot a group at 30 yards that was very tight together but they all hit 2-3" low. I concluded that my arm was getting tired which made me drop my bow slightly as I was floating the pin over the target, so on the next round I was more...

    Hello I am right handed archer. When I release the bow using a hinge release my bow arm (the arm holding the bow) moves or flinches. This happens a fraction of second after I release. It moves in different directions each time I shoot some times left, right, up or down. Most of the time down...

    Hello I have attached 2 videos of me shooting my compound bow. I was wondering does any one have tips on my form and shot process. Any help will greatly appreciated. The videos take some time to load. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FX_8l90tHbhfG19gf7QOYTHRVJubuLLS/view?usp=sharing...

    Hello I changed my draw length from 29.5 to 30.5 inches and my arrows started going left. Does any one know why that happens. I use open stance to shoot and I am right handed. Thank you

    Hello I noticed after 30 minutes of shooting my arrows go low. I think that is because I am dropping my bow arm. Does anyone know of any shoulder exercises and arm exercises that will let me hold up the bow for longer? Thank you

    Hi My archery teacher said I was doing something weird with my hips. The were moving around to much. Before I go to full draw should I flex my but and stomach muscles. When I am at full draw my but and stomach are relaxed. Could this be the reason my hips going all over the place. Would flexing...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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!
  19. 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...
