  1. So, since arrows are much slower projectiles than a bullet, the Kentucky-Windage style of aim-adjustment is a repeatable practice for archery? In rifles, center-mass aiming and tight adjustment of the sites is key because of the speed of the projectile. Doesn't seem to be the case with archery.

    I'm asking this because I am a beginner switching from rifle hunting (millions of rounds down range in practice, barely any game) to archery hunting (much better seasons). I have rifle habits that I need to separate from my archery practice so if anyone can help me switch my thinking with a few tips or a youtube video I can watch – much appreciated.

  2. Do you align the string when shooting? I been shooting with the string on tip of nose but rarely or never see the string and my group is decent, but when i do see the blurred string and put it next to the sight pin or riser the shots go everywhere, should i work on string alignment?

  3. Sending love to the Sensei!!!!
    Great teaching brother but you should do a video on aiming the sight techniques

  4. Nu, thanks for the excellent explinations and detail in your videos i have just gotten a recurve recently and come from a compound drawing 60# its a bit odd but i am really enjoying the conversion, i see many mistakes im making from whatching these vids and i appreciate what you do. Thanks, -sam

  5. Hey Nu.
    I've been binging your videos ever since I joined a local archery club. This is one of your best. I've been constantly forgetting which direction to make adjustments, and the "chase the arrow" is a great rule of thumb. Your demonstrations of groupings and how to look at them for consistency and tendencies are great, and even though at my club we shoot sets of 3 and not 6, I'm going to keep your advice in mind.

  6. I am new to archery, just picked up my first bow a week ago.

    Yesterday was my first day shooting with a sight and I wish I saw this video before hand lol. This is one of the later shot sets; the 3 grouped arrows I knew on release were the ones that were consistent form. I adjusted for that and was hitting yellow most times I was able to replicate the form. I am going to continue to work on getting a consistent form and stance. I shot 11 hours on the bow so far and loving it.


  7. Hi, I see you are using a home made target. I've looked at lots of ways to make a cheap target, would value your opinion. Thanks

  8. Hello! I'm an intermediate shooter, but I just started out with sights. I'm a little bit confused about shooting from a long distance where you have to compensate for gravity, therefore, having to shoot higher than usual. For example, if my arrows are landing very low, shouldn't the sight be very low as well? If you have to aim high, wouldn't you need to have the sight UNDER the arrow? Is this possible? I'm confused because that doesn't seem like something people do. Help please!

  9. Thanks for the great vids Nu. Question for you, once you're sighted in for all distances and barring any significant crosswind, would there be any reason to change your windage adjustment?

  10. sir my son is 12 year old he can easily shoot at 20 mts and 30 mts draw weight of his limbs is 34 but he cann't shoot at 50 mts,this is because of draw weight or lake of practice on 50 mts,please tell.

  11. I've been doing archery for 3 years.. When its starts 50 and 70 meters I cannot find my right sight yet always miss target.. I already tune to add poundange on my bow but still didn't get any a good result.Can you please give another opinion how to find sight in long range distance?

  12. Thank you for the tons of information you offer on this channel!

    I would be interested in an explanation of the aiming process refering to the shot cycle!
    When I started to shoot the Olympic Recurve Bow I had no Idea about my aiming process though I was very familiar to the ways of adjustment, string alignment, etc.
    The problem I found was that I startet aiming too late in the shot cycle. I focused on my sight picture only when I reached my final anchoring position. As a result, my sight always stayed one or two rings beneath the gold and I had to rise my bowarm to come back to center which caused fatigue and elongated the transfer phase (which caused more fatigue).

    I did a lot of research on training methods and -theories but I haven´t found any information that clarified the process of aiming.

    The potential end of my journey was an experienced shooter at a tournament who simply said:
    "You must start aiming when you rise the bow! Bring the aperture to a precise located spot above the gold before you start your loading phase every single time! When you reach the anchor, your sight has to stay exactly on the gold and float around it. If it´s not: Adjust your pre-aiming spot at the next shot! When you are in the anchor position your focus is just on the shot execution and nothing else!"

    After this, I started to interview more experienced shooters about this issue and most of them do it the same way! So, I wonder why there are so many unclear statements about the proper aiming?

    It would be great to see a video about this issues!

    Greetings from Germany
    Shoot straight and keep up the good work!!!
