Thread: The Grip...
10-11-2007, 03:42 PM #1
What is the proper grip? Should I be "balancing" the bow with my index finger and thumb, and have the remaining three fingers off the grip, or should I actually grip the handle and hold at a steady pressure. Sometimes I see the pros with all their finger off the grip...it simply balances in between their thumb and index, and other times, I see people with all their fingers wrapped around it...help!

The bow should be against the meaty part of your palm just below your thumb. And your fingers should just be relaxed do not stiffin them up trying to open them just let them hang there.

its how you want to shoot. what makes you shoot good. i used to open my hands for about 1-3 years. then i got into shooting with them closed. i shot just as good if not better but i would pull shots alot. so i went back to open hands and now its good. just shoot open."I have a passion for whitetail deer, not a passion for killing them. The fact that I deer hunt does not make me their enemy, but their guardian."
