Watch the heavier draw weights Elderberry as they tend to make the hips move towards the target. You have great form but I think it could be better. If I can critisize just a bit-in your photo's, I've noticed your left hip has angled itself towards the target. Not drastically, I've seen worse but if you can tell yourself as you draw your bow, to place both feet shoulder width apart and concentrate on maintaining both hips in line with your shoulders and feet, weight evenly spread on both feet, you should be able to correct the hip angle before it becomes a bad form habit. If you still find that your left hip moves towards the target when you draw, try placing both feet together, standing up straight and slowly drawing your bow. At first you'll notice that you've become off balance. That's because your left hip is trying to move in the direction of the target. Keep your mind on your hips being straight with your feet together. In the field, if you have to take a downward shot, bend at the waist, not the hips. Most men don't have a problem with the hip placement because of the upper body strength. Women, on the other hand compensate for the lack in upper body strength by using other parts of the body to help draw the bow instead of letting the upper back muscles contract to draw the bow. I know-bla, bla, bla. I just don't like to see new archers learn bad habits.
Will do Thumper! It's a 42 lb the heaviest I have pulled.
