I had a coach years ago that was of the aiming school of thought.
And I suppose it worked for me at that time.

Now, I prefer the form way of thinking.
About 3 years ago I switched to a circle reticle on the scope lens.
IMHO, the brain automatically wants to align all those circles.
All I have to do is worry about form and everything else will take care of itself.

It works amazingly well for me ...
That is until my brain decides to start wandering off to anything under the sun other than what I'm doing.
At that point there isn't much I can do but try and get it back, or suffer through the rest of the round at hand.

Hello All
Aiming the subconscious mind will conclude that part of the shot sequence.
But I do feel one needs the best form,they can put together. For when that shot breaks, to finish there follow through. [ Later

I believe shooting your " form " is most valuable. The other component of shooting your form is the discipline to let down when required. Then reestablish your proper settings ( form ) prior to releasing the arrow. Even though I have ample time I still have to force myself to let down when I sense poor form.

For those of you who shoot their form, what do you focus on? Is there one thing or does it depend on the situation?

Focus on aiming doesn't seem to be working well enough for me and I'd like to try the other way.

Thanks,
Allen

The two things that give me the most problem are:
1) The muscles in my left hand.
Whenever I start twitching those muscles, I'll miss left.
2) The firing of the release.
If not done smoothly, I'll miss right.

These 2 things are where I focus most of my attention to form.
At times, the left hand situation has been so bad that I literally focus my eyes on that hand and line up the scope using peripheral vision.

When all has failed, and I start focusing on the scope and dot, I'll start dropping points low.
Rarely do I ever drop points high.

I go through my mental check list from the ground up. When I practice I focus on each element of my mental check list. I practice with distractions ( Obama speeches, The View, CNN news, etc. ). :Talking Ear Off:
