Default RE: Does my DL look too long?

I'd shorten it an inch, try and bring your hand close to the back of your jaw - It doesnt really matter WHERE you anchor, and long as you do it every time. I personally prefer the knuckle of my index finger right under my ear when using an index finger release, and the space between my index and middle finger knuckles ont he back of my jawbone for a backtension or thumb trigger.

Like you, I keep my bow arm straight - I've tried putting a slight bend in it, but I found I'm a little inconsistant like that - I just keep my shoulder low and dont lock my elbow, and I've never had any problems with hunting clothes contact.

I just shortened my draw 3/8", and my bow now holds much steadier - you'd be surprised what a tiny adjustment in draw will do for your shooting!
