New to bow shooting

Recommended Posts

I'm new to bow shooting....i have a diamond infinite edge when im at full draw it seems that I can not hold it still and steady anyone now what might be the issue?  Would it be me or the bow needs adjusted?  I wanna take it on a deer hunt next year hopefully

Well if you don't shoot consistently, it's hard to build muscle memory, your muscles get tired quicker. Another thing could be your draw weight is too heavy or draw length too short? If new to shooting, better to start out shooting lighter then build up. A stabilizer can help steady the bow/shot but I'd try to find out it's a form thing first. See if you can go to a bow shop where someone can watch you shoot.

My wife brought it at sportsman warehouse I had them set it up and put a stabilizer on it so I'm not sure if it's a correct stabilizer or if it's even set upright

At full draw, nobody holds a bow perfectly still.  The longer I hold my bow at full draw the less steady I am too.  If you're waiving around a lot, make sure you have a comfortable and consistent anchor point.  That could be the cause if you're waiving around a lot.  Like Ruth said...the more you practice, the better your muscle memory will help combat fatigue too.

Definitely check your draw length, would be the first thing i would check. Might try practicing "floating your pins" to the target then releasing rather than focussing too much on how steady you are.

I found a big problem with my bow....Wife brought it from sportmans warehouse(2 years ago)  they set the bow up didn't have it set up right 1 cam rolled all the way back 1 didn't.....He adjusted it and kind of showed me how to shoot it ( no ones ever showed me correct way) .. He adjusted it but know I want to take it to a dealer to have them double check it...where I took it he wasn't to sure on settings as he sold Hoyt  and Matthews...Find time to re sight it in and should be good to go I hope then practice with it
