Whenever archers get together there are always those who would have us believe that since our ancestors shot a bows five fifty thousand years ago that we moderns can shoot a bow instinctively. Others think that all we have to do to hit a mark or bag our buck is to take a deep breath, look at the target, draw the arrow back to the ear, and let fly.

As with any other sport, good form is gained through practicing the correct procedure at all times. Scores will not improve just by shooting. Technique is most important, and it is gained through observing the performance of skilled archers on the shooting line, seeking personal advice and instruction.
