These Little Tips Will Have a Big Impact on Your Shooting Accuracy

With many bows, I prefer gripping the bow's riser directly (without any grip attached), which provides a narrower holding surface for added consistency. (Photo courtesy of Bowhunter.com)

In life, every decision and every detail has a way of affecting the overall outcome or result – Archery is not immune to this same principle

I for one believe that in life and in archery, it’s the little things that count for a lot. Solid “building blocks” such as quality gear, a bow that fits you correctly, and tackle that operates reliably, certainly make up foundational items necessary for consistent shooting. However, to reach new heights of proficiency – otherwise known as hair-splitting accuracy – making a few small steps here and there can make a tremendous difference.

A great example can be found in a bow I recently tuned and prepared for the field. Out of the box, this bow felt great. It drew nice and tuned quickly. All in all, it was a solid-shooting setup, delivering relatively tight groups in short order. I could certainly kill animals with it. However, accuracy wise, it didn’t knock my socks off, at least not on those long-range shots where a bow’s forgiveness really shines.
