Docking Your Boat

October 1, 2020


Anchoring. No, we aren’t talking about docking a boat. We’re referring to the position your draw hand takes as you pull back a bowstring. Each person’s chosen anchor point must rest on their face in the same spot, shot after shot.

Anchoring occurs right after you pull the bowstring to full draw. Think about aligning your arm and shoulder muscles to hold it solidly in place. Anchor your hand, the one you’re pulling with, on your face in a spot that feels comfortable and repeatable, this is usually along the jaw-line. Archery is all about consistency, and anchoring is vital for achieving it.
