Ah, I KNEW you were referring to this guy!!!

There's now a guy that's a moderator on another forum that's only been shooting for about 2 and a half years that's now got his own forum on another site and he's also now an expert. He made fun of my exercise regiment cause it was 'complicated'... and basically discounted what I said saying 'you don't need a regiment, just draw the bow'....but NOW he has announced his regiment, and its more complicated than mine. And, again, he's now an expert in all the realms ...this guy has done all this and never killed any big game with a trad bow.

Oh, why and I going off on this?....cause the 1st thing these types of folks to when they start a forum is start bashing TG. And, their no killin buddies like to pile on as well. And, this is their 2nd attempt, the 1st site that allowed them to have a forum shut it down due to TradGang bashing.

Your thread is much appreciated....more than you know. It helps counter all the junk we have to put up with along the way. I also would like to thank the folks that have emailed me over the years for their comments, and those that have been contributing members that send hand written notes with their checks or typed notes via paypal. They don't go unappreciated. [campfire]

He's a fake all the way around. And can't even get his bows to full draw. [Roll Eyes] [Roll Eyes] [Roll Eyes] [Roll Eyes] [Roll Eyes]

I also know who you are talking about. Got pissed cause you wouldn't allow a forum for his 'chest beaters' club. A club that had his criteria for joining and not one requirement had anything to do with hunting. Why? Cause he's never killed anything. And he took another bad attitude guy with him that I NEW WELL hint hint. He never kills anything either and never liked TradGang cause he got a thread pulled once.

Wow, I'm glad I don't shoot 55#, Or I'd be a pansy, I shoot less at my draw, so I guess I'm safe. [bigsmyl]

Hey Matt,

If the deep hook doesn't work, you could also try angling your hand from the wrist in a little as you are about to draw, this will twist the arrow in towards the riser as you draw and your hand is forced to straighten out.

Thanks for the great info. One of the kids (12) that I mentor likes to shoot bows but he was having the same problem, the arrow swinging off the shelf to the left. And after watching his drawing hand I was able to see that he was pinching the nock between his fingers and rolling the string to the left as he tightened his grip. By spreading his one over two under fingers a little farther apart and having him get the string a little deeper (first joint groove instead of pads) the problem straightened out. Now I know I did the right thing after reading the expert advice from TG and Ric Oshay. Plus I'll know what to do as I step up in bow weight. I shoot selfbows, osage and hickory, currently at 50#.

With a good deep hook I am able to shoot 60 pounds two fingers under right and left handed...the deep hook is the key

I set out a while ago to reduce my herd of 40 bows...And I am finally down to 42

Yeah, I remember when matt started that heavy bow forum and it got shut down cause they were bashing TG. Then they started up on another one. And I also heard his *friends* were ratting him out he just kept on trying to register here.

Now I hear these same *friends* claiming he's going to sue TG.

Some people really need to get a life and get over themselves.

Yes getting a good hook is key as you start to pull, but you have to have a little relaxing of fingers to pull the arrow a little into the riser. I trained myself to actually roll my fingers in from the knuckles a little more shooting 3 under as I got on the string. As I started the very early part of my draw I then relax the hand a bit for a little more rotation on the string. You have to be careful not to cup your hand when you draw past the first inch or so.

I never had an issue that I can recall shooting split due to more finger contact holding the arrow. The change from split to 3 under started the issue for me. I also use to be able to shoot reveres cant easily split, but that is much more difficult 3 under. Most carbons snap on the sting and once on, will rotate on the string easily. For me it takes a good bit of pressure from the index finger pushing the arrow nock into the top string nock to keep it from rotating. Even then it can be hard to keep it on the shelf reverse canting.
