    Lately I’ve been trying to quit aiming with just the tip of my arrow. I think I’m letting go of the most mechanical aspect of my aiming process. It seems to be working for me. I’m still something of a two-out-of-three-kill-shot archer. But I’m definitely making more shots at random distances...

    Not been posting much or shot very well most of this summer, I've not been myself at all and kept going to the Doctor, anyway hospital confirmed Friday that I have Prostrate cancer. I had a bunch of tests yesterday including biopsy and next week will be CT scan. I'm glad they figured the problem...

    Trigger Finger is now in my right hand as well, my shooting is awful as cannot release properly, it was so bad Saturday I stopped after 6 targets. I've dropped poundage to 36 now and seems better, if this doesn't work out it's either quitting or Compound with release, not sure which is worse.

    It was late last night when I decided would complete just one more step in build of 1st pyramid bow . . . using 4est trekker's great 2009 build along. Wellll, I don't know if it was tiredness or the 3 beers that immediately preceeded my fateful decision, but I managed to glue the riser 1/8" off...

    I've developed an annoying rattle in my upper limb pocket that won't go away. It was happening from time time but would stop sometimes(or I didn't hear it through the focus?). Here's what I have tried: Checked and tightened all bolts, then removed limb-lock set screws to make sure they weren't...

    I hurt my shoulder last fall/winter. I couldn't shoot my bow without pain, so I stopped shooting a stickbow. I missed most of bow season (not acceptable) with the injury. This spring, I tried shooting again and had pain while shooting. Before and after shooting I had trouble sleeping due to...

Here is how it starts to effect my shooting. When I'm at FD and pulling through, the shoot goe's of consciously. I start shooting...

    At least, quit shooting the way I was. Eliminate the target, forget about aiming and release, too. Even before I watched this, I knew accuracy was all about form, and the blank bale is a great tool. Still, I plodded away with tuning my bow and shooting dozens of arrows trying to nail that bulls...

    :help: I am in need of your expert advise on how to proceed with my shooting. I have been suffering from a form of target panic-can't get to anchor and when I do can't hold at anchor, plus always being below target when I do reach anchor and then releasing as I jerk up my bowarm. This has been...

    Well I shot a tourney this weekend despite the pain and discomfort I managed to win with a solid and respectable score. But I paid a price. I'm supposed to be wearing these bands to close a gap between top/bottom jaw this seemed to have worked but on Sunday I forgot and left the bands out, by...
