Eight tips to get you hitting the target more often.
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and perpendicular to the target.
- Keep your body relaxed and your shoulders down.
- Use your non-dominant hand to hold the bow and your dominant hand to pull the string.
- Place the arrow on the arrow rest and ensure it is correctly nocked onto the bowstring.
- Draw the string back smoothly and steadily, keeping your elbow high and your wrist straight.
- Anchor the string at the corner of your mouth or under your chin, depending on your preferred method.
- Aim at the target by aligning the bowstring with your dominant eye and the target.
- Release the string smoothly and follow through with your shot by keeping your aim on the target after the arrow has been released.
Target Archery York
Target archery is a type of archery that involves shooting arrows at a stationary target from a fixed distance. In target archery, the archer typically shoots a set number of arrows at a series of targets, each with a different set of scoring rings. The closer the arrow lands to the centre of the target, the higher the score. At the Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park, our archery events are target archery.
