    I Did

    I shot instinctively for years, & started useing sights this year.

    I just did not have the time needed to keep up my groups.

    I used a bear compound.

  3. Fury- How did you shoot was was your style and anchor point?

    Finger tip draw, arrow under nock, flip rest, 28 inch draw,
    100grain field point, anything past 30 yrds, I would use the tip of the arrow to aim by.
  5. Did you shoot split finger style (one over two under the arrow) or Apache style (three under the arrow)?

    I shot instinctive about 18 years ago and I shot apache style. I was getting pretty good then switched to release and sights and found out I did'nt have to practice nearly as much to be very proficient. I do like instinctive shooting though as there is less to go wrong.:peace:

    Me & The Sponge

    I shot one over, & two under.
    Never have I shot Apache.

    Also at 30yrds or less i just look straight ahead & let them fly.
    Like Carnegie hall practice practice practice.

    I still shoot instinctive, just not past 20 yrds anymore.

    It's nice when I'm showing a newbie to give them a sighted bow, & then out shoot them with a stickbow for the fun of it.

    I know it sounds mean, but 90% of the time I get a how did you do that reaction, esspecialy when I use a recurve.

    Then they are hooked.
    You can see their eyes light up, & that sponge we call a mind just go to work absorbing everything it can.

    Instictive shooting

    I shoot only instinctive with my bows, compound bows tend to challenge me somewhat when it comes to anchor points.

    In recent years I've dropped the use of compound bows and stick to traditional longbow or recurves only.
