    Angry anchor point

    Hi,
    I just need some feedback for my anchor point, I have a kisser button which helps but if I move my lips or face at all it seems to throw me off. I haven't found a place that I can consistently anchor to on my face like ear or the string on my nose. Just wondering if anybody has any advise. Thanks,

    Thanks, after having my dh watch me we noticed that my stance has some issues as well so after doing some correction on that I am much better. I just have to make sure I have a straight face for my kisser button to be in the same spot. For some reason I am not comfortable with any anchor point on my, face chin or ear. Anyhow we leave in a week for some awsome whitetail hunting in Montana and to visit home so we are excited.

    The best way is to post a picture and then we can see if there is anything wrong with your form.

    "dh"........this is what worries me.

    "deadbeat husband", "designated hitter"(baseball), "designated husband", "dedicated husband".......... who knows?

    Skillswife, my wife can't use a kisser button either. We have 3 children. Her facial expressions change so rapidly a kisser button would only work if she were shooting a machine gun, grenade launcher, or a nuclear missle. hehehe

    Seriously, I do not use a kisser button either. And, like you, I do not feel comfortable with anything touching my chin or cheek.

    On my hunting rig, I use a peep and let the string touch the tip of my nose. I use a thumb fired 3 finger release. My release hand is thumb down when at draw. My palm faces away from my face. My index finger touches my jaw bone. It works for me.

    This also gives me 3 anchor points. Sight centered in the peep. String on my nose. Index finger on my jawbone. My sight has a level on it, but, I seldom look at it.

    Good luck on the hunt! Good luck on the house!

    Most likely you need to adjust the drawling of your bow--probably shorter. You should not have to move your head the slightest bit when drawing and anchoring. That's why bows are adjustable. You make the bow fit you. Stand, look at your target, and draw the bow to YOU.

    Now this is just my experience over 31+ years, and goes against what most bowhunters do but------------- KISSER BUTTON------do you kiss your husband (or boyfriend) with the corner of your mouth? Need I explain more? OK, you draw the bow to YOU and anchor. If the bow fits you won't have to move your head and the kisser button anchors at the lips, which haven't moved because your head hasn't moved. Does this amke snese to you?

    My spelling was a little off. Drawlength. Make sense.
