Id say worry about your grip as number 1 thing. Dl as number 2 thing and your your elbow wil be where it will be. If those 2 are correct your going to have a hard time rotating your elbow to any certain position.

Your elbow should be rotated out. This is a natural consequence of holding the bow correctly. the handle should be in the V of your hand, but on the right side of your life line...to do that, your knuckles will be at a 45 degrees angle to the handle. This will cause your elbow to rotate out. To help in this, curl your second (long) finger, and ring finger in between your hand and the handle...your pointer can hang there, curled in front of the handle...do curl it, or if it rises up, u may end up shooting it off. So doing this, you are not gripping the bow at all...only the back tension of the drawn bow holds it in place...keep your hand like this thru the shot....the bow will then fall, but that is why you have either a finger or wrist sling.....this technique will keep you from torquing the bow left or right....ljohttp://www.archerytalk.com/vb/images/icons/icon7.gif
