  1. Proper Foot Placement

    General Archery Discussion
    Anyone wanna share a pic of what proper foot placement looks like when shooting a compound bow, thanks in advance!
  2. Any recommendations to help me avoid trying to look ahead when I release and tilt?

    General Archery Discussion
    Ever since I’ve been into archery, one of my biggest issues is the tendency, no matter how hard I try not to do it, I sometimes move/tilt my riser, just so slightly and try to see the arrow and where it hits the target when I release. More often then none, I totally missed the desired arrow...
  3. Modification to Kisik Lee's Technique?

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I'll have to check Total Archery, Inside the Archer, but watching Jake and Brady shoot and hearing the commentators, has Lee modified his technique? Specifically, is he advocating drawing back from the side of the face, then bringing in to anchor? I know he really likes to emphasize angular...
  4. Tips on Technique

    General Archery Discussion
    When I'm doing target practice at 20 yards, I hit to the right of the bullseye almost every time. My fiancé has adjusted my sights and it helped a little, but it's still going to the right most of the time. When I practice at 10 yards, I do much better at getting it in the center. I am...
  5. what is your anchor point + where do you line up the string

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Style is olympic recurve. These are the observations I've made from experimenting. If you are more knowledgeable about which technique is better, I'd like to hear from you. For the longest time I've been using the following facial reference (I'm right-handed): black widow finger tab w/ plastic...

  7. Please criticize my form/technique

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been shooting for about 6 weeks now, and I feel like I'm a pretty bad shot. Going by NFAA scoring at 20 yards, I'm lucky to break 140. My shots are all over the place, and I figure I'm doing something not quite right, but I don't know what it is. So I recorded myself taking some shots, and...
  8. Arrow fletching control question.

    General Archery Discussion
    As your shooting form improves and your equipment and bow are upgraded, arrows are thinner, do you still need a 2in blazer or AAE pro hunter vane to control arrow flight or can a smaller vane be used as less correction is needed because of better technique, and still be accurate? If so how small...
  9. Olympic Recurve- Difficulty with consistent anchor/draw

    Coaches Corner
    I've recently started shooting olympic recurve at a local club. I shot for awhile without a clicker. I just got my arrows in and started using a clicker. I'm having problems consistently drawing. Sometimes my clicker goes off before I've reached my normal anchor spot and other times it reaches...
  10. How's my form?

    General Archery Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and have been shooting a compound bow for about 3 years now. I have improved a great deal in that time but know I can still be much better. Here is a video of me shooting recently. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! To give you an idea of where I'm at...

  12. Hand Position

    Coaches Corner
    I've been trying to really perfect my shooting technique and was watching a Larry Wise video on hand position. My question is where should you feel the pressure of the bow when your drawing and at full draw, the top of the hand or at the bottom with the wrist almost broken down. When I draw my...

  14. What is proper form?

    Coaches Corner
    Hi, I've been shooting archery for about 7 years now with much success and some breaks in between. I recently decided to commit myself to the sport (i.e. dedicated practice, research and time to the sport). I would like to start out on the best foot possible, so I was wondering. Is there such...
  15. Question on Draw length?

    Traditional Archery
    Okay I had always thought my draw length was measured from the where the nock meets the string to one inch beyond the end of bow. I was in a pro shop yesterday and they told me draw length was just until the end of the bow? Now I use a both a Martin Hatfield takedown and a Longbow no compounds...
  16. Barebow training technique advice.

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    These are quotes from an old thread I've been looking through. My question is: How are clickers and sights used to train a barebow shooter? (Presumably draw length consistency and aiming?? ) As a barebow practioner myself I'd like to know so as to try to improve my technique. TIA.
  17. About Darell Pace

    General Archery Discussion
    I was browsing the web looking for information about Mr. Darell Pace and I found one of his quotes regarding his shooting technique: Gold medalist Pace calls this concentrated effort, “lashing the body to the bow.” How would you explain this phrase? What do you think he means by that?
  18. Holding a Steady Bow (or Somewhat)

    General Archery Discussion
    Guys and gals. Can you let me know and everyone else what you do to get your bow to hold steady in the middle. I know this is a pretty open question but any information would be great. Like me for instance will hold good on the spot for 3-4 seconds then will start to float low back and forth...
  19. Shot sequence

    General Archery Discussion
    Could some of you guy list your shot sequences? I have a "rough" shot sequence that I don't always follow step by step. I have found that when I start shooting a little off, it is usually something that I have left out of my normal routine. For instance....when I seat my bow hand into the...
  20. How do you know what muscles to use?

    General Archery Discussion
    On my quest to shoot back tension my biggest problem is that I can squeeze about a million different back muscles so is there a way to know your using the rhombiod? I do have the book core archery and I have not seen a spot in the book where he tells you how to find those muscles. Thanks
