    Awesome video man, I like how thorough you are on your videos. I had to figure this out the hard way. I switched from a static to dynamic release and I think it helped my form problems like plucking the string and not keeping proper back tension. Wish I would have watched some videos earlier when just beginning, it would have saved me a lot of time, and lost arrows in the grass! Lol

    To me, this is the most difficult aspect of shooting, because I want to release the shot when I am on target, but must do this by allowing the string to slip from my fingers. How does one ensure that the string slips from the fingers at the desired moment? I guess it's just practice.
    Regarding follow through, your string hand should move back because the force of the bow string is no longer there to hold your release hand in place. Hence, the hand moves back after the release as a reaction to the shot, not due to conscious effort. If your release hand is constantly drawing back, then you don't really have a true anchor point and will lose consistency in shot placement, unless you're somehow releasing at exactly the same point in a dynamic draw.

    It seems to me that with the proper draw weight and user strength, a static release would be more consistent, but the line between a dynamic and a static release seems pretty blurry. Your release arm is going to move backward from the bow in both cases due to the laws of physics.

    Happy I discovered you NUSensei. I just shot my first bow last week. I really enjoyed it and am hoping to set my own targets up at home once I purchase my first bow.

    I knew a lot of my shaking was due to taking too long to aim. I found that slowly dropping the bow to proper angle helped a bit, but leaves very a very small window for release. I don't have a proper glove yet and my arms are usually worn from work (warehouse), even for a light weight bow. I do enjoy the instinctive shooting though, it takes a while to get used to your particular bow. The persistent expansion and follow-through are what I really gotta work on. I'll have to give the blind-bow exercise a try.
