Default Instinctive Archery Insights.....

A couple weeks ago while on vacation, I read Jay Kidwell's book...... I enjoyed the book and found it useful.

The really good tip I took away from the book was visualizing the trajectory of the arrow..... I know Byron recommends the same thing in his book, but until recently I had never really paid the trajectory thing much attention.... I've been shooting with more of conscience gap.....

Anyway, when I got back home I started playing around with visualizing the trajectory... I mean really visualizing.... Just staring at the target and then imaging the flight...... I made myself forget about the gap, and just really toss the trajectory around in my head... Pick a spot, draw, hold for just a second to get that back tension really pulling and WHAM!! I was shocked at how well it was actually working..... I haven't had a lot of time to test it, but I found I was shooting just as good, if not better out to 25 yds with this method as I was with more of conscience gap method....

Just thought I would share.

I got my copy on Monday, still haven't had the time to read it in detail, but I've found Jay's insights very useful.

Recommended reading for instinctive archers.

I,ve been shotting that way from my first bow till now. I can,t shoot any other way. I think when the mind, eye and arms work together nothing works better.

"Instinctive Archery Insights" by Jay Kidwell........ Revised addition..

A lot of the book is about the mental aspect of the sport... It's a good read.....
