    Default Dropping Shots Low

    I have been seeming to drop ALOT of shots low lately. I know my sights are on because I will put just about everything else right around the middle, so I am sure its something I am doing but I cannot figure out what it might be. Form-wise what would cause a person to drop shots low?

    These guys are pointing you in the right direction. Don't try to watch your arrow. You'll see where it is when you go to pull em...

    P.S. I am guilty of this myself as well...

    thanks guys. I posted this same question on the "other" site and they were all bound and determined that it was TP, which is always a possibility but I am not so sure. Thanks again for your help.
