Sorry, been very busy lately and not had time for play on the forum...... Bojangles - Your arrows are going left. Are you sure you are lined up? That is, when you are in the draw position your eye sights down the shaft of the arrow. Often we tend to lean our heads into the arrow instead of anchoring such that the bow string bisects our aiming eye. If you lean in this tends to pull the arrow off one side or the other. Second thing to check is your release. I'm assuming you are a right hand shooter, bow held in the left hand, draw with the right. As such and if you are using the three finger grip, where the string rests on your fingers and how you release may cause arrows to wander right or left. First, the string should rest on the pads of your draw fingers. Not in the first knuckle groove. Next is the rlease. If you conciously release the string what happens is we pull the string, in this case, away from our face thereby pulling the back of the arrow to the right. Hence the point goes left. Now the arrow flexes right and left in the air, but will tend to hit left of the aiming point. In a good release you don't actually release the string as much as you relax your fingers to the point that the string slips off your fingers. If your hand moves from your anchor point, other than going straight back, you may be pulling the release. Try this, see if it helps. I find that when I get tired all these things creep into my technique and it goes.........well south. Cheesy - Pennsic. It was great as usual. I spent most of my time on the archery range. I found a vendor there who was selling horse bows - different than in previous years. I talked with him some about my reaction to horse bows - too much hand shock etc. He offered me two styles of horse bows, Mongolian and Hungarian. The Mongolian bow had little saddles of wood that the string rested in near the tips. I guess this increases the leverge of the string upon release for more snap to the release. Anyway, I took both of them up to the range and shot them. Upon return I told him the Mongolian bow, with the string rests, had more hand shock than I prefered. He said that was to be expected. However, the Hungarian bow (looks like the Kasai horse bows) was a sweet number! Fast, easy draw, very little hand shock. He said that was also to be expected, design differences. Needless to say I bought it. The limb tips are veneered with horn and the limbs are wood with fiberglass stringers in them. (The Kasai bows are fiberglass limbs.) The best part is the bow was a full $200 less than the Kasai bows! The other thing I did at Pennsic this year which was an absolute blast is Atylatl. Basically its throwing spears with a throwing stick. You hook the end of the spear into a point on the throwing stick. Then you throw the spear and the stick becomes an extension of your arm allowing you to throw the spear incredible distances. We had a "battle". Each person was designated by a hay bale with a piece of notebook paper on it. One hit in your bale and you were wounded. Two hits and you're dead. One hit to the paper and you're dead. One side threw, then the other. Between throws we had 10 seconds to move, our bales. I haven't had that much fun at an event since my very first event! It was a blast.
