SHOOTING TIPS :
"Never Stop Pulling"
- Rod Jenkins
Want to pickup 6-12 FPS at the same weight your currently drawing,
without buying a new bow?
Want to become much more consistent with your
It's easy - learn to never stop pulling!
By far, the biggest form flaw I see with a majority of traditional archers
is "they stop
Don' believe that? Break out the video cam and
footage of yourself, as well as your pals. Playback in
slow-mo and at the moment of release, you'll see the draw hand
forward, often losing 1-2'' of draw before the fingers clear the
string, and often the fingers are getting
scrubbed by string in the
process. Ever wonder why guys are buying thicker gloves and tabs?
Pulling in an archery shot is a 3 phase affair.
pulling to anchor.
(2) Balanced pulling at anchor.
(3) Increased pulling (expansion) to shot conclusion.
doubt it's a little more work to never stop pulling, but the dividends
are well worth the effort, and face it "
guys shooting longbows and
recurves weren't looking for the easiest way to begin with"
Mental side of Archery
John has been practicing hard for opening day of bow season and has been really working on form and shot sequenceand things are going great, He's taking his time and really executing well put together
shots and confidence is high! Then opening morning all the pre-season scouting pays off and here comes the buck of a lifetime
down the trail ! John excitingly thinks I've got to get him, before he gets away, draws his bow and flings an arrow over his
back, clanking into the woods. Disgusted John, thinks, how could I have missed such an easy shot ? I make much tougher shots
all the time in practice...I just don't get it!
What happened was our fictitious pal John, totally moved his subconscious
out of its "safe zone" by changing priorities from executing the shot he had practiced all summer in the back yard,
with a performance based thought...the conscious mind made harvesting the buck much more important,than the shot, while the
subconscious was prepared to shoot a good shot, but all that changed when the conscious mind changed priorities, leaving the
subconscious out of sync and confused.
Moral of the story ? Put together the best shot sequence you possible can and
when that buck walks into range... DO-NOT change your priority, simply trust and shoot, the shot that you have made
countless times in the back yard.
