Oregon 4-H Archery Member Manual 11
Nine steps of shooting
Shooting can be divided into nine steps. The key to becoming an
accurate archer is being consistent every time you shoot. Practice
these nine steps until you have mastered your shooting skills.
9. Follow through
Place one foot on each side of the shooting line. Find a comfort-
able, balanced stance with your feet shoulder width apart. Stand
straight and tall, with your head up and your shoulders relaxed.
Archers shooting from a wheelchair should put one pair of wheels
on each side of the shooting line.
Place the arrow on the arrow rest, holding the arrow close to the
nock. Keep the index fletching (the different colored feather or
vane) away from the bow. Snap the nock onto the bowstring under
the nock locator.
