Seven mistakes that shatter bowhunting accuracy

Mistake # 1: Bow Torque

The bow grip is where everything begins. Before you purchase a bow, examine the grip’s fit and feel. If anything feels “wrong,” move on to the next bow.

If you bow you already has an incorrect hand feel, your options are: 1.) Sell the bow and get a different one. 2.) Purchase a more comfortable aftermarket grip. 3.) Take the existing grip (if it’s wood) and have a carpenter sand and shape it to your hand.

Once you have a grip that fits, work on how you grip the bow. Torque results when you use your whole hand to grip the bow. The more of your hand you use, the more likely you are to torque the bow. Identify this problem by glancing at the top wheel or cam on your bow at full draw. If the bowstring doesn’t line up perfectly with the cam groove, your arrow will not exit the bow true.
