Default Target panic

I need help! I have struggled with target panic for a long time. I am going to switch from my trigger release to something different. Can any one tell me if a pull through release or back tension release is better? Thanks

I would recommend a good back tension and plenty of blank bale training. IMHO a pull thruogh release works best with excellent form. Most of us dont have that form.

A back tension release only works if you use it as a back tension release.

I ve seen a few guys using hinges and thumb triggers who are doing nothing but twisting the release to go off or hitting the trigger with there thumb to send the arrow then call it back tension and wonder why they are still jerking with target panic at the shot. Spend the time need to properly use back tension or all your doing is prolonging the problem.
Once you learn back tension you can fire any release with back tension. I use back tension to fire off my trigger release while hunting, it is the same tension I use to fire off my thumb release and it is the same tension I use for my hinge. When I'm target practiseing I switch back and forth between the different releases just so I don't anticepate the release on any one release.

Back tension is not a easy fix,alot of blank bale shooting, and shooting with your eye's closed and up close are needed to ingrain back tension. It doesn't happen over night and if your cheating and trying to hit a spot at the same time your trying to learn back tension you will fail. You have to learn to release the arrow with back tension without thinking about back tension, you cannot concentrate on both things at the same time.

I think of it as building tension in the middle of my back. I draw the bow, set my anchor points, stare my point of aim down, and start building pressure in the middle of my shoulder blades which draws into the back stops. This puts the extra pressure into my hands which triggers the release. On a hinge I can feel the release slipping in my hand which rotates and sends the arrow.

"A back tension release only works if you use it as a back tension release."
True, and that is the thing with any release and fingers.
Target panic is not in the hand but between your ears. Switching release types just gives you something else to consentrate on for the time being. You can "trigger" any release. Don't let the shot go untill your ready. The target is not going anywhere.
Back tension releases can cause their own kind of anxiety.
Take a deep breath, and work on consentrating on the target, not the release.

You mean that a backtension release isn't REALLY a backtension release??:banghead: Now if you can get about 70% of the rest of the "experts" to comprehend that backtension is only a "method" of release...why it would be unicorns and glitter for everyone.

While I understand what you are saying; if we don't call them BT releases, then what do we call them?

No,no,no....don't take that wrong. I know they are backtension releases. I'm just saying that just because they are releases that are to be prodomtily released by the backtension method, they can in fact be fired without using backtension at all. Simply meaning that a person can buy a hinge release, and never use backtension to fire it, thinking that just because they shoot with a hinge, with no "Trigger to punch", they shoot USING backtension when in fact MOST of them are just rotating their wrist to fire it.

Now I know that some of the people here are gonna argue, "well the release has to rotate to fire", and yes it does. But HOW you get it to rotate determines if you are using it properly.

Welcome to the site W900.


Target Panic is what we make of it, willing or unwilling its the fear of missing while others are watching or when we are out of our comfort zone. Normally the focus is on trying to not miss versus confidence in shooting and hitting the intended
