- Good day,
Recently I attended a British Longbow Shoot. While I was there the
question of anchor points came up. I have been anchoring with my index
finger on the corner of my mouth. They recommended that I change to an
under the chin anchor point with the string touching my nose. They were
not pushy about it, but it got me to thinking. With an under the chin
anchor I will have 2 spots where the string is touching me. Then I can
also sight directly through the string and line it up with the tip of the
arrow. It strikes me that gives a better triangulation for aiming. Also
the string would then pass closer to between me and the target which would
move my aiming point in from the right. Right now I aim way off to the
right. The new anchor point would bring that way in so I am almost looking
at the target. Where does everyone else anchor? Has anyone tried both
Nest- who should really be packing for Pennsic, not reading emails.

- I did not save the post, but did someone say something a while back about having
better luck using longer arrows with the Hun bow? If this was correct, did it
refer to using a longer draw and longer arrows or just longer arrows?
