Best shooting practises
« on: February 16, 2019, 06:20:22 PM »
I read so much stuff on here sometimes it becomes confusing on what method to aim etc....etc.. Speaking for myself and not trying to complicate matters I like to keep things simple. I'm definitely not a natural at Archery.  I wish. :thumbsup:

I guess the way I look at it is to try various methods of shooting and of course bow tuning that you feel comfortable with and stick with it.  Good or bad I find that if I keep switching over and trying new things it seems to hamper any efforts or strides I gained by staying with a certain style for a while.  If it aint that broke dont fix it.    Does this make sense to you guys.

For me, it’s a journey. I try different things from time to time, and now and then have an “aha” moment. I certainly can relate to getting confused though.

I attempt to find what works for me, and then practice them as perfectly as possible until they are “imprinted”.

The bow and arrow was a uniquely human invention that was reinvented again and again over the last 50,000 years or so, as were the ways to shoot this uniquely human invention.  I'm sure if you look the world over, a million ways to shoot the bow have been invented.  Some of these ways were no doubt reinventions of earlier methods, but since writing hadn't been invented for much of the 50,000 years, they count as new inventions.

My advice would be to use a method until you think you've learned all you can learn from it, and if you're happy with your skills, stay with it.  If not, then look for another method, or at least look for changes to the method you're using.  Remember, you're not trying to learn something that was invented for Martians.  It was invented by humans for use by humans, so your own intuitions count for a lot.
