  1. It is correct to shoot three fingers under As mentikned in the video, NASP instructs students to shoot shoot three under. Some call it "apache style". Split finger, or Mediterranean style, is an acceptable way to shoot as well. Most traditional archers shoot split fingers. Hope that clears things up.
