The advice that Bill gives to new archers is go to a pro shop to get set up and get the best equipment that you can. Join an archery club to get involved in the sport and for help and fellowship. Take lessons from a certified instructor. Start using a back tension release as soon as possible (with assistance from a coach). Use indoor target archery to improve your form and hunting accuracy and use 3D archery to help with your hunting yardage and arrow placement.
