PostSubject: FIrst crack at your method today   Sat 12 Feb 2011, 8:01 pm

Just learning from your videos....so here it goes.

With all that has been going on lately I decided to shoot some arrows today, but where..hmm

Well I am not supposed to bring my bow to the college but I decided to take it to one of the shops that isn't really connected to the college. Real bad at taking orders but this gives me a max distances of 12 meters indoors.

Didn't matter too much cause the plan was I was going to shoot short anyway just to get it down.

Didn't realize until I tried it that I realized how fast I usually shoot/release - what a wakeup call.

Anyway:

I set up the video camera and started. The play back surprised me at how little my fingers actually moved and my bow arm was fairly still. Now my elbow isn't near as high as most ppls but it's where it just naturally goes.

So I set up:

1 - Bow between my legs (rest the bow arm) even my finger tips and put fingers on the strings pointing shoulder at target and feet relaxed and shoulder width apart.
2 - Take a deep breath and then let it out slowly.
3 - Inhale and hold your breath and draw bow
4 - draw hand thumb knuckle on my ear lobe (this sure felt wierd for the first few shots cause you have to draw away from your face).
5 - Tip your nose to the feather
6 - steady your bow arm
7 - unconsious release
8 - let breath out
9 - relax it's over

Took a bit but I got the hang of it after a few shots.

I do lean into my shot alot though.

here's a vid of my very first shot.

Had a blast. Something I didn't realize was how much I lean over when I shoot.....do I need to fix this too.

Comments welcome.
