  1. 1. Improper Stance  One of the most common mistakes

    is having an incorrect stance. Ensure your feet are shoulder-width apart, with your body facing the target squarely.  Avoid leaning too far forward or backward, as it can throw off your balance and accuracy.
  2. 2. Gripping the Bow Incorrectly.  Many archers grip the

    bow too tightly, which can cause torque and affect the arrow's flight path.  Instead, use a relaxed grip, allowing the bow to rest naturally in your hand. Your fingers should be relaxed, with minimal tension.
  3. 3. Inconsistent Anchor Point  Consistency is key in archery,

    and having an inconsistent anchor point can lead to erratic shots.  Find a comfortable and repeatable anchor point, such as the corner of your mouth or chin, and ensure you consistently reach it with each shot.
  4. 4. Overdrawing or Under drawing  Drawing the bowstring too

    far back or not far enough can impact your shot's power and accuracy.  Practice drawing the bowstring to the same anchor point each time, ensuring you achieve a consistent draw length.

  6. 5. Poor Follow-Through  Neglecting proper follow-through can result in

    missed shots.  After releasing the arrow, maintain your stance and focus on the target until the arrow hits its mark.  This ensures proper alignment and helps improve accuracy.
  7. 6. Ignoring Weather Conditions  Failing to account for wind

    direction and strength can lead to missed shots, especially at longer distances.  Pay attention to environmental factors and adjust your aim accordingly to compensate for wind drift.
