If this is a bow and arrow set up that is well tuned and normally shoots well . . . Are you over drawing some?

Both bare shafts and feathered shafts group together heading to the left of the bull's-eye for 5 in only happens once in a while that's what leads me to believe it is a form problem .  do believe you're onto something with over drawing

If I over extend I shoot left and a tad higher.

Check your brace height. Give it a few twist up it will bring your arrows back to center. Unless it's your form or you could be short drawing which will give you a stiff arrow.

If you’re inconsistently shooting to the left, it has to be a form issue.  There are a lot of things that can cause occasional left misses.  I could list 10 different things.  Your goal should be to develop a consistent form where 90% of the arrows go to the same place.  Then you can switch over to tuning to get them hitting where you’re aiming.

Sounds like you are not coming to full extension/draw-i.e. proper alignment on some of your shots which will throw your arrow to the left.

Moving to the shooter's forum...

 Please feel free to carry on this conversation  on the shooters forum...thx

Very likely Terry is correct.  If you're not getting your string arm elbow around behind the arrow, that is, in alignment with the arrow, then your shots will go left, because your forearm and probably your shoulders are aligned to the left of the target.  If you think you are overdrawing the bow, it is probably because you are using your arm muscles and not your back muscles to draw the bow.  When you draw with your back muscles, your string arm elbow does not keep heading back, causing you to overdraw the bow. Instead, it naturally curves around your spine in a J shaped path until your shoulder blade moves as far as it can toward your spine at full draw.

Even grossly out of spine arrows will fly down the middle-bare shafts, not so much.  Feathers can cover a multitude of tuning problems.  So.... you can take anything regarding the arrows off the table.

From what you've described I'd suggest you have an alignment problem.  It may be time to go to the bale and work on your basic form for a couple weeks.
