Default another how's my form

I was out shooting and my son asked if he could shoot so I said ok.He hasn't shot in atleast a year.Too busy with baseball and basketball and such.I think he has been reading my form advice because I did very little with him when he started shooting.The group wasn't the best but I will take it from a 9 year old that hasn't picked up his bow in a year.


We might need to work on the gut and the but.

Do you recommend having the feet that far apart? I'm not being a smart ass I really want to know. One would think that would give a better "base." I'm usually about shoulder width apart.

I actually like it but it might make deerstand shooting tough.

He likes a wide base,even when swinging a bat.It has worked well for him there and he even gets great weight transfer doing it.His hitting coach liked it as well.I have a friend that isa level 4 archery coach and he loves a wide stance.


So,from a target aspect,no problem with it,from a hunting one,he might need to narrow up a bit.

Look at his old man's bow arm in the avatar.That is a taught aspect of his form.Even though he hasn'tshot in a year.

A 9 year old out shooting a bow and arrow. Nice seeing that these days.

Good form too, probably much better than i was at that age. Keep up the good work.
