I've been reading the various threads on "Terry's Form-Clock." I reviewed "Masters of the Barebow" Volumes I & II to examine the shooters shoulder positions and all appear to have parallel lines with arrow and shoulders even though some have stances that are more open than others. Parallel shoulders appears to be a common denominator to accurate shooting regardless of foot position. Turn and twist, shoot up or down, but keep those shoulders parallel. Good StufF!

If you are having questions on alignment please get the Bowhunters of Tradgang DVD. It has a section with Terry devoted to it. Nothing like seeing it in action.

Terry,
Is the bow arm suppose to be bent? I lock my bow arm and continually slap my arm with the string. Thoughts?

I have my bow arm straight, but my arm wont straighten out all the way. If you are getting string slap on your arm, you might need to bend your arm a tad, or you are gripping the bow too far to the inside, or you are torquing the bow or string.

Terry, I am turning my head so my first anchor is at corner of mouth (first incisor) and then anchor the string at the tip of my nose? I see in both you and byrons pictures that your head position is inline with your shoulders. Would I shoot better if I didn't turn my head to touch my nose to the string?

If you anchoring your string at the tip of your nose, you may not be getting full extention/proper back tention....most 'nose' anchores are feathers touching the nose which means the nock and string are an inch back and the string is past the nose.

Any way you can film?

No I have no way of filming. But like I said I first anchor at the corner of my mouth (first incisor tooth) then turn my head slightly until the tip of my nose touches the string, for the second anchor point. So my nock is about an inch or so past my nose. I was just wondering of any problems that could arise in slightly turning my head toward the string.

Terry:

In reviewing the photos provided.....it appears to me (an admitted novice) that a lot of issues might be solved by not short-drawing.

Do you find this to be an obstacle for a lot of trad. archers?

I think there is a "bunch" of folks over bowed.... its not uncommon to hear a guy say i dropped 5-10 pounds in weight and my draw length increased 1 inch...... now they have there elbow back..not pointing too the side...and much better alignment.... Overbowed = shortdrawing.

Terry, your instruction has really helped me and also helped me show my son what he needs to practice but a question was asked, "When you reach anchor at the corner of your mouth and move to the thumb nuckle touching your jaw bone, do you stretch you mouth corner until you reach that second anchor?" I said yes, is that correct?
