Learning how to properly aim a compound bow without sights can be challenging, but with some practice and the right techniques, you too can achieve accurate shots. Knowing the basics is important to learning the form you need to be successful. From the basic stance and draw to the proper form and release, the steps below will help you hit your target every time.
Position Your Body
- Stand facing the target, keeping your shoulders and feet perpendicular to the target
- As you draw your bow, keep your back straight and your head level with your shoulders
- Keep your hands firmly on the grip of the bow to maintain consistency with your draw
- Draw the bowstring evenly and smoothly until your bow hand reaches its anchor point on your face or chest.
- In this position, your forearm should form a 90-degree angle, with the bowstring stretched taut and your elbow locked in place.
- When drawing the bow and aiming, your dominant eye will be used to align the bow with your target. Close the non-dominant eye to help focus the aim on the target.
- Ensure your elbow is still locked in place and you are still in the correct position.
- Keep the bow and your body still as you focus on the alignment.
- Once aligned, draw the bowstring back until it reaches the back wall and hold it in place.
- Keep your focus solely on the target and maintain a consistent aim.
- Pause a moment before releasing the bowstring and allow your body to naturally settle while you aim.
- Once settled, release the bowstring with a steady and smooth motion.
