Anchoring

The key to shooting a bow and arrow and group your arrows within an acceptable area, is consistency.

It doesn’t matter if you have the world’s best sight on the market, if you can’t shoot consistently, it won’t matter.

The key to consistency is, practice.

One of the things that you will have to get used to is anchoring.

Anchoring is putting a part of your hand to a point on or near your face.

I can’t tell you how to anchor your draw, but I can tell you how I anchor my draw.

I draw back and I always have the second knuckle of my pointing finger a anchored on the corner of my mandible.

Find an area that you are most comfortable with anchoring.

Other archers use a device called a kisser button.  It is usually a small plastic, rubber or metal disc that is attach to the bow string.  Archers will place this in the corner of their mouth as an anchor point.  It’s usually pretty good as this anchor point and the kisser button would never move.

I personally don’t like this.  I feel as if, one wrong move and that kisser button will tear off part of your lip.  I’ve never seen it happen.

Practice consistency with this…. and you’ll be on your way to hitting your mark…
