It's not every shot, just occasionally, my arrows will be between 4 and 8 inches off of where I was intending to hit. Do I need to work on my form or can a light poundage sometimes make that happen. My draw weight is around 35 pounds but can probably go up to 40. Are adjustments and practice, practice, practice needed so I can be happy, happy, happy? :D

Thanks.

Most people don't realize it's bow torque. watch your grip on the bow and check that your contact portion isn't changing with the shot. My personal experience is that I wasn't gripping the bow but closing my bow hand right at the shot moment which moves the muscle that the bow is in contact.

It could be youre draw length is a little too long for you causeing you to have inconsistent form. just a thought. good luck

To keep form issues in check I like to shoot from point blank range. Close your eyes before releasing all your focus will be on the bow hand and how the bow reacts at the shot.

:shade: Sounds similar to the problem i have with shots going left of the target. It drives me nuts one shot good the next 7 or 8 inches left never right.

Sounds like form. Try loosening your grip. Just my experience...but when I am pulling shots to the left it's because I am gripping too tight and torqueing the bow. Since I am a right handed shooter...my shots pull left.
