Drive Your Scores Up

The Archery Article that Drove My Scores Up

A lot of Archery Articles are easily available to pass a lot time. Some are fantastic reads that make you wonder why you didn’t see them sooner, others are tidbits of information that remind you of things already learned, and still others are time sinks that you wish you never clicked upon. Archery Focus Magazine is in the first category and I want to highlight just one article that has driven my scores up and made me particularly happy to have stumbled upon.

How To Teach the Transfer Form Step to Compound-Release Archers

“How To Teach the Transfer Form Step to Compound-Release Archers” by Tom Dorigatti explains a manner to transfer the draw weight into the back and how to set up the release. The important parts of the article include a hands on lab that coaches can utilize with their own students. This single activity drove me to choose Tom’s article as one of my favorites of all time. Tom explains his rationale in detail and you will probably want to keep a diagram of the back muscles around and in the end my scores moved up. The complete article appears in the Archery Focus March 2014 magazine that can be purchased at the link below.

Needle in the Haystack… FOUND!

In my blogging repertoire is another popular web site, Outdoorsman In Suburbia, the predecessor to Archery In The City and a web site with many of my early archery articles and revelations. In one of those articles I mentioned my philosophy of watching arrows and numbering them for the purpose of measuring arrow performance. I received a few comments on that article and one insightful comment was by Steve Ruiz. Being new to the archery scene, I must admit I had no clue who Mr. Ruiz was and why I should take into account his opinion in my future endeavors, until I clicked through to his coaching web site and publication, Archery Focus Magazine. It only took a couple of preview articles to convince me to purchase as the return on my subscription to my own archery skills and students would be immense.
