Center Shots: How to Develop an Effective Pre-Season Shooting Routine

If you never shoot under pressure during your practice sessions, you never learn what it means to focus and trust your form to deliver the arrow during the season. With August just around the corner, now is the perfect time to shake the dust off your shooting form and make yourself competitive.


Because the majority bowhunters don't shoot their bow much from January to August, there will most likely be a number of bad habits to deal with when you begin shooting again. Field editor Bill Winke goes over how to deal with these issues and shows you how to develop an effective pre-season shooting routine in this Center Shot segment.
