    Default OK, tear my form apart...........

    just what I said, Tear it up. I have never posted and asked for advice on my form, I think it's about time. Dont hold back, I'm a big boy.

    here is what I think: My right elbow is too high, bow arm might be a little low. It looks like I am leaning back in the pic, but I made sure that I had equal weight on both feet. My spine does send my upper body to the right a touch so that might be part of it.
    Ok, your turn.....

    It's kinda sending mixed signals because you're leaning back like your draw is too long, but the angle of your release arm is slightly high like your draw is to short...

    I have seen this thread before. I have that same nuckle slightly lower than he is showing in the pic. I settle the nuckle in the pocket just behind/under my ear lobe.

    I think it looks like I am leaning back due to the jacket and the fact that the target is slightly lower than I am and I am not bending at the waist as I should be.

    ya, and your big ham hands kinda hide your actual anchors lol. And I have had problems in my backyard because it is sloped and I sometimes forget to bend at the waist instead of lowering the bow... its easy to do...

    The hat does too.
    Seriously though, your overall forum looks good, but it does look like the peep could be lowered a little.
