Hi my name is Chance Platt from Humphries
Archery here in American Fork, Utah. Today we are talking about how to shoot archery.
There’s a lot of aspects to archery, from competition to hunting to what have you just
in general ethics, rules. One never shoot when something, someone else is down range.
Two always be sure of your target if you don’t feel one hundred percent confident that you
can’t make the shot that you are shooting that especially applies to hunting, then pass
on the shot, don’t take it. Three practice makes perfect. The more practice that you
do it ahead of time, the more effective you are going to be when you are out there either
in a competition or the field. Now we’ll cover how to actually shoot an arrow. You are obviously
taking her out of your quiver whatever you are holding it in. You want to have a quiver,
cause quiver is a safety, some sort of a safety mechanism that way you are not just stuffing
them in your back pocket and you poke yourself with the point or something. This is no fun
getting hurt. Take your arrow and you notch it on your string, set it on your rest. Typically
you are not going to want to notch an arrow until you are sure that where ever you are
going to be shooting is safe. There is no one down there, no one has walked down range
to retrieve arrows or anything while you’ve been prepping for your shot. Then you’ll hook
your release your string, you want to draw on a fluid motion. So if you find that you
are having to really jerk on the bow to draw it then your bow is probably a little bit
too heavy for you and you should probably go to your local bow shop and they can adjust
that for you and get you into a better, something that is better suited for your current strength.
So then you draw, and aim, and take your time, relax, make sure you are where you want to
be. And then shoot. And optimally you won’t be sure when you, you won’t be able to identify
the point in time when you hit the trigger or when you’ve let go with your fingers. Cause
it should be smooth and so natural that it just goes off and it feels like it didn’t
happen. And there you go. That’s basically how to shoot archery.
