Could be a combination of nock point height on the string, arrow rest height, arrow rest left/right adjustment, arrow too stiff/weak, point weight too high/low, fletching/rest clearance, etc... Check out the Easton bow tuning guide on www.eastonarchery.com
. It's a .pdf file you can download for free which is very good reading and talks about arrow flight, arrow/point weight/arrow spine, bow tuning, nock point and rest adjustment, etc.... It also covers different shooting equipment and styles like recurve/traditional, coompound and finger/release shooting styles.
