Default Video of me shooting the Ross today

Well after doing that Blazer vs. Quickspin review, I decided to do this with the Ross for the first time. Any tips would be appreciated, I've been shooting REALLY well as of late. Only thing I see is my follow thru needs a little work, and I torqued a hair on the 2nd shot.

It seems to me that your dropping your hand to quickly, try following through a little longer.

Edit- I should of read what you wrote first

You could work on the smoothness of your draw as well....

That's to much movement for a "hunting situation" IMO.

It isn't terrible but could be smoothed out a bit.

Yeah I was getting very tired after shooting all day. I may get another one tommorow or something.

I was given a good bit of advice awhile ago. Practice shooting only one arrow, that's right one arrow. A friend of mine gave me the idea. He said shoot as though it's the one arrow your going to shoot @ a deer in a real situation. Pretty rare that you get to fire off multiple shots at a deer. Now that's not to say do it all the time, but pick a day & go out & think of yourself in a hunting situation. Try shooting thru some trees/brush, whatever that makes it challenging. Video your form w/a fresh arrow.

I agree. Thats the first thing i noticed. Try keeping your arrow pointed toward the target when you draw.

I agree with Scott and drhntr. What you gain in the extra poundage....you give up (and more, in my opinion) in stealth on stand.

Your body size looks better suited for a Hoyt, though.
