Looks Solid!!

Everything looks good to me. Well, except for the Hoyt:D Naw, really, from the angles and lighting, there isn' anything apparent. If you're having any troubles with anything, maybe muscle tension could be the culprit.

i am not a pro at this, but it looks to me like you have your left elbow locked as well. i believe it is suppossed to be slightly relaxed. i have found you are a lot less likely to get bitten by the string if you flex your elbow a little as well.

The rear portion of your shot looks good. When it gets into the core of your shot like your head. From a picture I can see that your head is not erect, which means you are either used to having your head in that position during the shot, or you are moving your head into that position during the set up.

Sometimes a shot needs to be thought about from the core of the body out. Starting with standing up straight. I hope you have extra drawlength on that cam because you are going to need it.

Your set up looks fairly squashed, what I mean by squashed is that your bow arm could be extended more. Your body should be allowed to expand through a shot. Into the line of force of the arrow, rather then the sight.

The first thing I would say you should work on is getting a more erect stance. I myself need longer modules for my compound because my drawlength is to short and after I've drawn I have to settle by head into the string.

You do have a fierce competetive look and that alone could make you a pro.:D

Thanks for the help so far guys

mattellis2 My elbow isn't locked it does look like it but it is relaxed but straight. I have shot like that for a while and I learned from watching tapes of Dave C. and reading but thanks.

runawaysXs I think I know what you are talking about with the hips. That is my big problem. Trying to figure out how to stand up straight.

I don't like the way my front shoulder looks. To me it looks and feels wrong. My draw length feels good. But Nino said lastnight that it looked short and after looking at the pics it does to me to. I thought all summer that my elbow was to high. But I don't know. I am comfortable but I am not. Know what I mean.
