Terry

One question: Do you deside on an anchor point and then try and get to 'full' draw, or do you first determine full draw and then get the best possible anchor to go with your full draw? If I do the last, I add 2-3" to my drawlength.

Neather really.....it just all 'came about' while learning to shoot.

The best way to get properly aligned is to do it on the bale....and find the place to anchor with your elbow pointing at 6 o'clock....and if you can find a second(double) anchor that's even better.

Drill it in on the bale and it will happen automaticaly in the field.

Man...I read all this at the wrong time! It's too cold for me to shoot much now, but now I have a serious "yearning" to go out and shoot and work on this!!!!

Gee - Thanks alot Terry!!!! [Mad]

But seriously, this is great info, that I'm really excited about trying. I've been complacent to believe that short drawing and snap shooting was accpetable, but I'm going to work on this. I'm all for another inch or two of draw stroke power!!!

Good stuff Terry, and though I know you did all this a couple of years ago, thanks for putting all that time in to do it right, with the DVD and pictorals for us!

You guys are top-notch.

Just wanted to echo what many others have said....that clock picture really helped me out. I'm not able to get completely parallel on every shot, but at least I know what it 'should' look and feel like.

well im stoaked . this thread is really takin off ,
so its helping me a bunch i read earlier in this thread last week about bringing the string to tip of nose and corner of mouth witch is funny cause i ALLWAYS teach this to compound shooters , i never thought it would work for trad , i used to anchor like gordon in my eye tooth but i had allot of inconsistancy with blurred vision "i wear glassses and have a sever stigmatisim. this anchor has made a huge diff. although its really been a strugggle to remember this new aanchor but when i do man do i drill the shot if i dont i miss right over the top . so ill just have to practice allot more to get that muscle memory. thanks for the help .

form is everything! shoot well shoot hard.

Awesome Guys ,
Am pretty new to trad. bowhunting but am really enjoying it. Was so glad to read the post of how compound shooters usually take awhile to split arrows , I was starting to worry. I finished my boardbow(thnx 4est) and have been shooting for about 3-4 weeks now am trying to figure out the arrow situation and form situation, this has really helped . You all make it look so easy .
Thanks so much everyone P.T.
