OK, so I've been away from my bow & the woods for the better part of 4 years (due to living in a nice and sunny tropical paradise, with lots of pretty fish, but no hunting). I hunting for years with a bow, but am self-taught (which should means I have lots of bad habits). I've made a committment to get back into the woods with my bow... But, I want to do it right So, I would like to work my draw-weight back to about 70-ish pds and be able to consistently group (~3") at about 40-45yds (over time). That having been said, its my form I'm concerned about. I definitely punch the release and hold the bow with a death grip, probably from being self taught and having "sometimes" to shoot really quickly (no comment). My question to the bowhunters out there: how have you found a balance between form and real shooting situations? do you adapt to the shot? limit yourself to opportunities where shooting with "perfect" form is possible? or just let it rip? I would like to find a balance that works for me and dedicate my practice time to setting the muscle memory to it. Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
