Being completely transparent here, there was a time in which I honestly hated shooting my bow. I couldn’t shoot an arrow without horrible anticipation. Not a single one. I used to try to “time” my aiming with a trigger punch and I was absolutely consumed by target panic. I hated shooting in front of people at the range and especially in front of a camera… but where my panic really fostered itself was at the top of the mountain. Months of preparation, days of hiking in, and finally getting into the perfect position on the animal I came to kill, would end with me mentally breaking down from my own inability to make a controlled shot. It was devastating and a hard pill to swallow.
I actually believe the majority of archers (and even most shooters of any weapon) live with this inability to make a controlled shot. But luckily there is help. Serious instruction that can teach you how to change your mental state for the better, all in a single class. Before you go buy a new bow, or new release, or new anything, spend the money on one of Joel’s classes and get your mind right. Fall in love with shooting again (but this time for real), and discover your process of control. Please contact Joel Turner of Shot IQ to book a class or to take his online class “Controlled Process”. It will change your life... as it did mine
