Only 3 more days until I get to use my compound bow for the first time! I felt a little unprepared, so I thought it would be important to learn about proper archery form and how to determine what my dominant eye is.
In order to do this, I checked out Youtube! There are SO many videos of people teaching archery tips, so it was hard to choose. I came across Howcast which is a youtube channel that posts the most random videos, but they are all informative and get straight to the point!
I began by determining what my dominant eye was, and I am right eye dominant. Learn which of your eye’s is dominant here.
Next, I learned about proper stance. I have practiced holding my bow in resting position and I now know how to put it from a resting to ready to anchor position. I watched quite a few videos on archery form, but I found this one the most useful. I really enjoyed how someone was doing the explaining of how to hold it, while the other person demonstrated what to do.
Check out my blog next week to see me in action and using the bow for the first time!
