Mathews Pro Tips
Shooting well consistently with a compound bow depends largely on muscle memory. The more you think about a shot, the more likely you are to mess something up.
Tip # 20
“When learning to shoot instinctive, begin shooting at moving targets with flu-flu arrows. Flu-flus will ensure recovery of all the shots you will miss. Your brain will learn a lot quicker and will train your body how to proficiently hit the center of moving targets. You won’t have time to aim. Your brain takes over and eventually calibrates the shot for you.”
“The most crucial part of accurate shooting is hand to bow fit. Wherever you put pressure from hand to bow, it will effect your left to right or up and down. Low pressure will create high arrows, high pressure will create low arrows, inside or outside pressure will create left or right arrows. Your knuckles should be at a 45 degree angle and the center of the grip should follow the life line in your hand. Place your hand in this position and let the bow pressure your hand.”
“Your release hand should come straight back and touch your shoulder.”
“Shoot every shot without fear of missing.”
