A big thing that hurts a lot of people is shooting in the wind, whether it’s their backyard or they are on a big stage at a World Cup shooting for Gold. The worst is when you feel like you just shot the best shot all day, and then it drifts over missing the spot you were shooting at. When you can't control the wind, you're left relying on a few good strategies.

While working in the archery shop and shooting tournaments, one of the most frequently asked questions I am asked is what draw stops I am using and why. Currently I am shooting the Elite Echelon 39. This bow is unique in the fact that the bow gives the archer both types of draw stops to choose from, either limb stops or cable stops. The draw stops on Echelon allow each archer to mold the bow into your own shot style.

The Mental Game, Nerve Management and Practice of a Pro

I get more messages and questions on this subject than any other. People always want to know how a pro practices, what their mental game is and how to handle nerves. I can personally tell you that I shot more than I ever have this past season, but it turned out to be the longest and worst year that I have had as a pro. Due to this, it was an extremely mentally draining year and my confidence suffered. Notice that I said that I shot more and not that I practiced more. There is a HUGE difference between shooting and practicing. Your mental game isn’t only something that you use in tournaments; it is also something that you use in practice.

This is a topic that I have heard about so much over the years. The question is if you should shoot your bow at max poundage. In my simple answer, I have never really seen it matter in the slightest. I have had to back down a 70 pound bow before to the 60 pound limit set out by USA Archery and World Archery. I never saw a difference in my scores. Not in the slightest as a matter of fact.
