i seen you have got about the same responce over on AT.are you talking a trad bow,or a compound with just a string no rest,sights,peep,silencers,ect...,or maybe an old school long bow.

im a bit lost:confused:

14 hours of fishin and 1 catch will do that.;)

I have shot with only a d loop and release. If you practice you can do well.

Yep but I didn't like it, shot very poorly. I think gibson 787 shoots instinctive with a release.

When I was younger I had a 30lb recurve shooting fingers that I could hit a phone book fairly regularly at about 50yds. I haven't shot that way in awhile so would be lucky to hit the target now.

Doesn't matter how you shoot, if you can get some consistency going its all good. :)

Its amazing how a cut on a finger change things, you don't realize how important and how much you use them until it happens.
