Question Aiming

Does anyone have any strategies for aiming and hitting a bullseye?

When you lift the bow and your arrow hits the target.

Ok knock up an arrow, stare a hole in the target you want to drill, check your stance, Draw back and look throu the peep below the target, Let the bow settle, the slowy raise up on it, let it float around the x, then fire.
Then run down and pull it and stick it in where you want it.

You have asked the question that archery is all about. I think the biggest thing is to remember repitition is the key. Make sure you are hitting all your anchor points and that your release is consistent. A bad release will mess you up pretty much always. Another thing hubby and I just deceided to do is not drink any caffeine drinks before shooting. Helps keep that bow arm a little steadier. Seems to help somewhat, and of course the ole practice till you can't practice no more.

As for how close....well depends what you're trying to work on. I'm working on that long distance stuff so for me I'm looking at 50 - 70 Yds. I just keep thinking aim aim aim .....and pray the release goes off eventually.

I don't know about the east coast but here in the midwest we just keep backing up until we start missing the target then step forward 5 paces it seems to work for me.

I start above the target. Check to make sure peep is aligned and housing is centered then float down into the bull.

Just be carefully you don't start to do drive bys on the bulleyes! That will wreck your score faster than a dozen bent arrows.
