      I think it may depend on whether you "sight" shoot, or shoot
      instinctively. I don't look at or down the arrow, I look at the target
      with the arrow/bow in my peripheral vision. My anchor is somewhere
      close to my mouth, ( it must be early, I can't think exactly where the
      darn thing is ). Aside from glaring 'abnormalities' I would say, shoot
      as it feels most comfortable to you.

      remember where his anchor point is...too early....to much blood in the
      coffee circulatory system)

      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

        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?
