Title: thumb draw reference point?
Post by Sarosh on Mar 9th, 2019 at 3:56pm
just exploring the thumb draw .
I can't find a way to aim down the arrow with the thumb draw, the arrow tip is behind the bow. How is it done? :-?

Instinctive shooting.  You want to align your arrow with the target, but not use it to aim.  This video gives a great explanation.  It's concentrated more on the Mediterranean draw, but he covers the thumb draw too.

He also has this video on shooting with a thumb draw.

If you're talking about the one with a shelf on each side of the bow, I also like that a lot.  This was the first time I had seen that.

thanks for the answer.
  i thought there might be a way to aim down the arrow.

guess i'll try thumb draw with the arrow on the left side.

If you are right handed and right eye dominate, draw with your left thumb.  You'll be looking parallel with the arrow.  And the arrow will go on the left side of the bow.

Or, you can shoot left handed with a thumb draw and use a right handed bow.
