    👍🏼shots not over until you go get your arrow...watch the shot hit through the sights, slowing down on the follow through is *one of the things I'm working on always, to just look at my pin where I want it while at anchor & not shoot but admire the view for a moment first has helped me. 🤙🏽🎯👍🏼

    That’s good advice!

    I'm out of indoor options currently but 5# dummy helps with maintaining muscle with a heavy band to draw & hold. 🤞🏼🎯

    @Casey that’s something. I scavenged a shoelace and tied loops to practice my release. Helps with my target panic.

    @Nathan for that & some rehab I did a bunch of blank bale, year's of it...from a couple steps, when I had a garage.... I cut out a 5 ring & used a big thumbtack same color as my sight pin on center X to hold it to the target and then take the sights off. ..setup & form work during positive 🎯sight picture every release with actual bow/arrow.👍🏼

    *...aside from that, I tell myself practicing for hunting scenarios in mind that the hardest part is getting to the anchor point...from there enjoy the view, it took a lot of work to get there...only one shot, then the work begins..bad shot = bad work ahead...there will be stories. 🤞🏼🎯

    @Casey I’m a total newbie, and am really enjoying the process a ton. Thanks for sharing all of your processes.
