- _Get a Grip--_On release, the natural tendency is to choke the grip. This leads to torquing the bow. Arrows are pulled off target either left or right.
_Draw Cycle--_A herky-jerky draw means: 1.) too much draw weight and/or 2.) you're not in bow shape--both cause ill-flying arrows. Drawing a bow should be one, fluid push-pull motion.
_Aim--_Possessing the ability to hold a bow steady is of paramount importance. Archers experience target panic when they're unable to steady their pin on the target. Rushed, punched or pulled shots result. Trained muscles and well-rehearsed shot sequences minimize target panic.
_Release--_The advantages mechanical releases have over fingers are tantamount. Greater draw comfort and logarithmically cleaner string releases top the list.
- _Think about It--_Professional athletes have mental routines they follow prior to performing. Golfers address the ball and pitchers set their foot on the rubber, lean-in and get the signal. Prior to executing, mentally run through the perfect shot sequence checklist.
