Shooting a bow and arrow accurately and consistently requires practice. You need to learn the techniques and horn your skills in order to shoot arrow after arrow. Just, concentrate on a tiny spot on the target, remember the smaller the better! This will help you in shooting, since you are required to concentrate more than if you were shooting at a larger spot on the target. Thus, concentrating on smaller spot is the key to concentrate on the spot that you want to hit. Other than this, nothing else should be on your mind. Just, keep your eyes on the spot, while you draw, anchor, aim, release, and finally watch your arrow to hit the target.

While shooting, keep your both eyes open. Shooting with both eyes open would also help in low light conditions. Apart from this, it will also help watch the arrow as it finds or misses its mark. However, you shoot with both eyes open, your eyes may battle for dominance while you begin to aim. Under such circumstances, close your non-dominant eye for a second regroup and open it again.

Always, keep your fingers relaxed while holding your bow. When you aim at your target, and make sure that your pin is in the small tiny spot on the target. Then, start squeezing your trigger on your archery release, constantly concentrating on the tiny spot on the target. Keep squeezing the trigger slowly as well as concentrating. Keep your bow in the same position while you watch your arrow find its mark.

Always, practice shooting your bow at long distances. Shoot, say at 45 yards or more! Because, this will magnify any imperfections in your shooting form, since the farther you shoot the more your imperfections will impact your arrow flight.

Whenever you decide to shoot your bow, make sure to consciously aim at a tiny spot on the target. Clear your mind of everything, except the tiny spot on the target. Shoot it with both eyes open, relax your fingers on the bow, squeeze the trigger on the release, keep your bow in the same position after the shot while watching your arrow hit the target. Practice at long distances. Remember!
