Iam having some trouble when shooting, When I practicing I dont aim rite, It is like I have to pull my release as fast as possible before I even put my pin on the spot I want to hit. It is driving me nuts and I dont know why I am doing it. Any help would be great. Hunting season is in less than two weeks.
Thanks for toe help.

I doubt there's a quick fix; but ... I'd say slow it down. Break each and every shot into two phases and try to repeat each phase RELIGIOUSLY. First phase, arrow out of quiver, nock the arrow; set your feet; set your bow hand; draw the bow back slightly above your target spot; check your grip; your level; your anchor; and position your finger on the trigger against the barrel of your release. Try to do this the same in every practice shot. That's just the logistical stuff. This should put you in the proper position to START aiming. NOW ... comes the hard part ... the mental phase. Let gravity help you lower the pin onto the "dot." Concentrate your mind on that dot through your eyes ... nothing else. DO NOT try to hold the pin rock solid ... just concentrate on the dot and let your brain set the release off. DO NOT think about "when" to release (or about anything else on this planet for that matter) ... just think about the spot.

IF ... that helps you ... you are indeed a lucky man. You sound like you have some form of "target panic" ... which can take a great deal of time & effort to overcome.

When you draw your bow and get it into position, keep your finger away from the trigger on the release, then put it on the trigger.
