Actually, by doing it the correct way, you can reverse cant and keep the arrow on the shelf.

i will sometimes pull the arrow off the shelf as i draw. Usually when this happens i find that i am cupping my draw hand, instead of keeping the back of my hand straight/flat.

I have also found that when I hold 3 fingers under the nock instead of 1 finger above that the arrow stopped jumping to the left. This also helped my aim.

I have a question pertaining to this also...
I noticed that when I am drawing, that if my fingers are touching he arrow nock, it will move the arrow to the left when seated on the riser and pulling it back. When my fingers are looser and spread out more(index and middle finger not touching the arrow nock, but very close) the arrow will stay positioned correctly. is this correct technique for positioning fingers around the nock on the string?

I just got back into archery about 8 months ago. I was practicing with a 30# bow. I switched to a 55# bow and the arrow jumped off on every draw. drove me crazy. canting didnt help. also I strained the tendons in my fingers/hand (scared me!)I read this thread and Terrys description of "point your fingers back to you and they will un-curl as you draw" totally clicked. Problem solved instantly. no more arrow jump,no more finger pain. thanks Terry. Now and then when it happens I just know what I'm doing wrong and instantly correct.

As a newbie to archery I have been having trouble with the arrow coming off the rest. Just found this old thread and look forward to trying a deep hook with relaxed wrist and hand to rotate the arrow into the shelf. Thanks everybody!

If you grab the string up on the middle of the second phalange of the middle finger and let it roll in the crease between 1st and 2nd phalanges while drawing (deep hook) the string rolling movement through arrow nock will push the arrow secure against the bow shelf.
PS This rolling happens in first inches of draw or it can be done right before drawing, when you position the string on your "deep hook". I prefer to do it before drawing, but to each his own.
