I am wanting to get my girlfriend into archery but I don't know what her draw length is. Does anyone know a way that I can get her close to where she needs to be in draw length?

Draw Length

The way my draw length was measured was by finding the distance of my armspan, fingertip to fingertip, and divide this measurement by 2.5.

Another way is to subtract 15 from the above measurement and divide by 2.

This should get you in the ballpark. Hope this helps.

The "wingspan" method is excellent. We use that; and the trial bow, to establish a starting point for draw length. I've found the wingspan minus (15), divided by (2), to be really good. After the new shooter gains a little experience, the "wingspan" measurements really start showing their accuracy in determining draw length.

I agree! That makes an excellent starting point:)
