    Default bringing pins on target

    I was just out shooting the Cheetah and,out of curiousity,was wondering how you guys like to aim. When you get to full draw,do you lower the pin to the target or raise it up to the target? I find myself doing both,but mostly I lower onto my POA.

    Default accu-trak or Mpro

    is one better than the other? And if so,why?

    Default bringing pins on target

    Generally it is best said to either place the pin right on the wanted point of impact or slightly above and come down. What it is, the muscles tighten and becomes harder to raise than come down. And then problems may arise, freezing below the target or snap shooting are two that come to mind.

    A while back I read a thread on AT about target panic and someone (forget who now) posted a link to some shooting coaches info on the topic. These all generally said what Sonny said - the best approach was to come down from above rather than trying to raise the bow and sight pin up to the target. The "coaches" basically said the first method will help prevent or even help overcome target panic and punching the trigger as its easier to lower the bow onto the target than it is to raise it up. I personally found this advise to be true.

    so,in your opinions,would I gain a bit of accuracy if I were to be more consistent in bring the pin down onto the target?

    I found that i missed low more often than not until I trained myself to come down to the target.

    lol i too release on my way down........ tragically i miss high more often though, and the sparrows and starlings that think they can hang in my yard dont seem to mind when i miss..... if i miss low i can get um on the bounce (judo) sometimes. a high miss on a 3d target is generally more forgiving than a low miss too. ideally i shoot with a rock solid on target hold....

    I like to lower to or come down to my target point. It also helps me to focus on my breathing as part of the shot procedure, no punching the release etc.. I did a lot of work on the way I would draw my bow which in turn also helped me settle the pin down to my target point; reducing the amount of time it took to get on target by drawing more in-line w/ the target.
