    learning to shoot consistant

    this past week shooting has fell apart horribly and I believe it's time to re-train AGAIN starting with the basics. I tend to have to do this every year or two, it just seems to be part of an archery rollercoaster for me. so some Q&A may be a good place to start.
    first: am I the only one that this happens to?
    2: what is the first piece of advice you would give a new archer?
    3: what shot sequence works for you (mental checklist)?
    4: kicking bad habits (tips)
    5: getting better, when your good to go what do you do to tighten groups?

    I haven't been shooting long enough to notice a roller coaster deal yet. But I do shoot a better group when I adjust my stance after drawing back and then anchoring/ picking a spot on the target. This is probably a bad idea but how I roll anyway.

    I'm no pro but my worst habit is focusing on the equipment. If I practiced as much as I fiddle around with my gear I would probably be way better.

    Every once in a while I just can't shoot to save my life so I don't. But I can go out the next day and shoot lights out. I'm sure if I took the time I could et it together but I usually have other stuff to do anyways so ill go do it.

    2- have fun. No spots. Shoot at something 3d instead of 2d.

    3- Check anchor, check level.

    4- make them so its the same bad habit every time.

    5- see number 2.

    1. your not alone...anybody can get the shanks...matter of fact the more you shoot can amplify bad habits.
    2. new archer...have fun
    3. stance,draw, anchor, sight picture...if anything doesnt seem right its time to let down and start over (the toughest shot to make is a let down).
    4. kicking bad habits requires consistency, like Bling mentioned focus on making good shots, nots lots of shots...and ending on a good shot builds confidence.
    5. dont shoot groups...one arrow at a time...each shot is the only shot I'm going to make right now.
    6. when the shanks get really bad get on the back tension.

    LIke Stan said but the bottom line is form! and I mean good form once you develope good form, identify your weak points, thats were you want to condition or work out . Back tension is something you should be using all the time anyway weather your using a wrist release or a hook you should use BT to engage the shot.

    Here's one other thought...... A lot of people will go out and shoot for a lengthy period of time, which is when we develop bad habits. Go out and take one shot..... Distance doesn't matter. Did you make a "kill shot"? Are you lingering on trying to be perfect? Use the mentality that you are only getting the one shot and you need to be quick and accurate.....Practicing like this will help with the mental side, as well as keeping you from reinforcing bad habits.
