Where does everyone else anchor? Has anyone tried both ways?
>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.
(who's going to have to go outside a shoot a couple of arrows to
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
refer to using a longer draw and longer arrows or just longer arrows?
