Default How's my Form?

Hey everyone. How do you think my form is? I am thinking my draw length may be a tad short?

Not sure if it's the pics or what.......... it looks like you need a big boy bow! [8D]

Too crunched up (longer draw length), or possibly take pics while aiming level to the ground.

BTW, there is a Form thread above.

Well from what I see your bow arm isn't straight. Its hard to tell anything else with it not straight first. The draw length will probably be short if you do straighten your arm. Also you find it gets easier to draw as your not using only your arms but more your back.

JMO,

Jason

Nope, shoot it so you are shooting straight like at a 3d not outta a tree stand then we could see better. Look straight ahead not down. Also i agree you draw seems a bit short but actually not so bad in the pic you just posted. Measure your wing span and use this then youll know if you havethe right draw. http://www.yeoldearcheryshoppe.com/drawlength.phpWCL

Draw length sucks. You're way to short. Find yourself a good proshop.

I agree your draw length is too short. It looks good in the pic, but your bow arm is way too bent. You need to straighten it out more and rotate your elbow outwards. Also, it looks like you are gripping the bow too hard. Try holding it in the "L" of your thumb and index finger, with your fingers relaxed barely on the grip.
