Default shooting left or right handed

I am left handed but I shoot a right handed bow. This feels comfortable to me. I am left eye dominant. I have drawn my bow left handed and it feels not right. Should i try hunting with a left handed bow?

Default RE: shooting left or right handed

For me, shooting a bow (or a rifle) is a matter of comfortability.
It it doesn't feel good, change it. If it feels "right", don't screw with it. I am surprised that a left eye dominant person finds comfort in shooting right handed though. That is usually the deciding factor for a right hand/left hand shooter.
Besides, you should try and shoot with both eyes open any way. Made me a better shot, and allows you to better follow your shot before and after contact with target.
