    When you start shooting bad, is there a common thing you usually find that you ain't doing right?

    When I shoot, a lot here lately when my arrows start to go of course, I notice that I am holding my release elbow down below my armpit, once I raise it to where its supposed to be, I shoot a lot better, instant improvement. But it kinda hurts to be in that position. Might that suggest that my draw is a touch long?? I have a history of shoulder problems so I don't know if its a bum shoulder, or could be the length:noidea:

    How straight is your bow arm? Looking down on a top view, would your arms and shoulders form a trapezoid or a triangle? A triangle is prefererable.

    well I would ask you to post form pics, but we all know they wont be of you as you are the slipster and no one knows for certain what you really look like.........

    although we did see you on that windy hunting video......but the wind was blowing pretty hard that day, and it could have distorted what you really look like.......:noidea:

    just post a pic and blur out your piehole :noidea:

    I find when I am shooting bad it is usually because I am not following through and pulling out of the shot early to see where the arrow goes!

    Don't talk about my piehole.

    In golf, I have that problem, not in bows cause I know where the arrow is going to land, in golf, I have no clue whatsoever where the ball will land or if I will even hit it. And when you miss the ball you have to try to sell it as a practice swing..:frusty:

    Often times when i start shooting bad I will get a different bow. Often times it will relapse you back into "better habits". I think once one gets comfortable shooting the same bow for a period of time its easy to get comfortable and often times lazy.

    Might want to try a different release as well. It can make a world of difference.

    Just make sure you are ready when "The Challenge" comes around :wave:

    "the challenge" was last night. You were a no show, meaning you lost via a forfeit. I guess your "shipment" was a little more important? :noidea:
