    Just a pic of me shooting. No front or back shots but any general input would be great.

    to me your the draw on the bow is a tad long as the string should be to the corner of the mouth and the tip ofthe nose.....your front shoulder looks like it is collapsed to far and you look like you leaning back slightly.....also the pic is not that good and should be full body.....lift the bow up and get an arrow in there.......

    Next raise your bow arm. Do not drop the shoulder bend at waist if you are shooting at a low target. We really need a full pic from the top of your head to your feet. Need to see your release elbow. You may need to shorten DL about 1/2" also.

    It doesn't look too bad but I would need another picture. First off put an arrow in that thing. Second point it straight toward the wall not toward the ground. We also need to see the back elbow.

    YES!!!!!!! I have had 2 release failures in the last month! You don't want to buy a new bow and pay the doc to get that limb out of your forehead.

    Yes but it looks like he may need a little more bend in his elbow. And he does seem to be leaning a little bit.

    I use a kiss button at my nose to keep me in a second point of a double anchor with my my thumb knuckle on the bottom of my jawbone. i also keep my head up as much as possible to a T with my lower body.. Yeah that draw lenght needs to be shortened. Maybe a shorter loop.
    we are not trying to be critiacl only helpful.
    I'd say keep shootin for your a natural. HS
