    I made the switch to traditional about 2 years ago and have been shooting instinctive. Sometimes with incredible success and sometimes with incredible inconsistency. I’ve been thinking of switching to a fixed crawl since I am primarily a hunter. It seems like a great system for being accurate...

    To start with I am shooting 40#, 28.5 DL, 31.5 arrow and I anchor at the corner of my mouth with my index finger. As best as I can describe I am shooting three under, split vision. At 15yds my point is right above my spot and I will hit it. So I believe my point on is about 15yds. As I walk back...

    So Howard Hill popularized the idea of "split vision aiming". Which, correct me if Im wrong, is just gap shooting where the archer focuses primarily on the center target and gaps with his peripheral vision. Whereas, classic gap shooting would have the archer focus primarily on his gap, with the...

    Well I finally got my Bear Grizzly set up with properly spined arrows and it seems to be shooting really nicely. I went with Easton Aftermath 500 spine cut to 30.25”, 75 grain inserts, 225 grain points, and 4 fletch feathers. I’ve picked this hobby back up after a few year break and had...

    So in my limited time I have noticed that I shoot much better, out to about 30 yards if I snap shoot. Or I don't know if I call it snap shooting because I still make sure to release at the same anchor point, but it seems like the less I think about the shot, the better I shoot. This is...

    This might be blasphemy with some of the crowds I hang with but hear me out. I've been shooting bows for 40 years now, the last 20 traditional only. No matter how hard I try I have issues with picking a spot on live animal. They don't come with ready made bullseye like targets, or the holes...

    I put the arrow just below my target. Since I practice with my hunting bow, I was quickly aware that field tips and broadheads are different in length. So I consider the 'tip' to be the shiny ring on the arrow end- Basically the little bit of of the insert that is exposed on the end of the...

    Hi guys, I just got a bit of a steal on a new bow. Its a 62" 55lbs Viking bow 'Thor' recurve. I hadn't heard of them before, although after research its a German brand and they retail for a hell of a lot more than I spent . The bow is probably a bit heavy for me at the moment, but only just...

    How you ever seen a barebow shooter using the archer’s paradox aiming from the side of her face and using the point on the target. Much like shooting an English long bow upright??

    I had been shooting instinctively in the past. I now gap shoot but I am left eye dominant and right handed. I started closing my left eye and it worked but not great. I now have both open and I see two arrows and just superimpose the one on the left over the target. Is this typical? this seems...

    Hey y'all I think I may have posted this in the wrong forum. So after a 5 year hiatus from shooting, my interest has peaked again, of course I now have a six year old step son interested in learning so that's part of the motivation. In the past I was a target archer, 3d shooter and hunter...

    Hey y'all, So after a 5 year hiatus from shooting, my interest has peaked again, of course I now have a six year old step son interested in learning so that's part of the motivation. In the past I was a target archer, 3d shooter and hunter (heavy on "Hunter" and not "Killer" LOL) and at the...

    For those who shoot split finger, which creates a large gap, do you just get to know your bow well enough through a lot of shooting, gap shoot, aim off the riser or other techniques? All tips appreciated.

    Okay, what I really want to talk about here is target panic. I’ve got a good friend, who’s suffered from target panic for years. He told me a while back, “I’M CURED!” Now… anyone who’s had this disease knows how difficult it is to get rid of, especially in a month, like my friend did. So…...

    In days past, longbow archers have been known to draw to the ear or even to the chest (clavicle). Sunday was my first clout shoot and to get most out of my bow and light arrows I drew the full 28 inches. The string gave a satisfying twang and my arrows just got to the furthest clout at 140...

    To those guys that shoot instinctive, how can you aim to tune shooting split finger to tune your arrows? Should you switch to 3 under to put tip on point of aim? I was just curious how. If you cant the bow how can you aim that way with there being a bigger gap with arrow being further down on...
