Keith......not so hard to do if you use a double anchor to make sure you get your back tension.

Nice job putting this all together on one post Terry.

To get back to the original question, the overlooked truth about form is it's all about straight lines. Your goal is to get that arrow to leave the bow in as straight a line as possible despite the bow and your influence on it. Understanding that this is the whole purpose of form (and tuning) often gets lost in the little singular pieces that make up your shooting.

You may look a little different than Terry, but if you make the right adjustments to fit you, you can achieve proper alignment, which will lead to consistent shooting with dilligent practice.

One other thing for the new fellows coming over from the compound. You will not be regularly splitting nocks in two days, two weeks, or two years. Traditional archery takes time, experience, knowledge, and your commitment to achieve proficiency. This is not a game of instant success. Accept this now and dedicate yourself to improvement, or move on and save yourself a bunch of disappointment.

Aint that the truth...I'm very use to instant correction with my wheelie bow so trad shooting a a MAJOR change to a VERY impatient person. I'm working very hard at correcting all my flaws.

I must say though recurves make an honest man...you can be an awsome shot w/ a compound and still have horrible habbits but a recurve will show how good your form really is. I have some work to do....OK ALOT of work to do!

Sure,

I drag my thumb base knuckle along side my face, and as my middle finger comes to the corner of my mouth I keep coming, and my thumb base knuckle slides in behind my jaw under my ear.

Terry, do you think that the draw elbow might be a bit high in the first picture on this page?

Bob, no, I really don't. From 9- 10: O'clock is pretty standard, different positions for different body structures.....however, if you get abovee 10:00 O'clock, you can run into some negative issues.

Here's my elbow on a level shot...probably around the 9:15 position....

 -


Please be aware...The elbow doesn't just 'come back farther'...it comes around in a 'J' shape. Do not be afraid to 'cozy up' to your anchor.

 -


BODY POSITION :

Not this.....

 -

But this...

 -

Not this(red line)...this causes a 'fly away' release and bow torque.

Thanks for clarifying Terry. I do see people shooting up around 10:00. Personally, I stay at 9:00 as I have trouble with anything but that area. But like you said, different builds..

Here's another issue folks have....not understanding HOW to draw a bow correctly to obtain alignment.

You do NOT draw with your arm or bicep....that is called 'muscling the bow'....you draw with a rearward rotation like you are going to close a door behind you......

OK....the door is in a normal position.

The shooter is where he would stand yet closer to the door so the draw motion would actually shut it...but this is the overhead view of the shooter to show the draw.
