A solid bow arm is fundamental to achieving good aim and proper follow-through. However, sometimes just telling yourself to keep your bow arm stationary or hold it up isn’t enough, and you still run into problems with a drifting sight pin or a bow arm that drops when the arrow is released.
Directing your bow arm forward during and after the shot can help you avoid dropping your arm and greatly improve your follow-through. In general, keep your bow arm driven toward the target for a picture-perfect finish. To do this, think about pushing your bow forward while you’re at full draw, or “pressing” through your bow shoulder to direct your bow arm to the target.
