I've never been to MoJam and unfortunately probably never will be. It has always been a dream of mine but I doubt it will ever come true.
I hope to be at the Tenn. Classic next spring if you can make that.

The problem of letting arrow go when you hit FD can have unintended consequences.  With lts of folks it will condition you to let arrow go no mater where its pointed at FD. I would tell you to "stay away" from that BIGTIME. May work for some but as a rule for accuracy its not a good idea.

Lots and lots of selfbow shooters shot with there bow sideway and humped up like like a monkee humping a beach ball. Some shoot very well like this but that style always reveals its flaws over course of say 30-70 arrows. When I think of one the better shooter who shoots a modified sideways I think of K. Cartwright. One of the very best drive by shooters there is USA today. If you dont have some centershot i guess you need to learn this method. This method of hit FD and release is usually shot by guys who also dont have a sighting method. They basically memorize then trajectory of arrow and shoot at target. This really is hard when you add pressure and distance.

Releases: I use two and I use them for different & specific reasons. Dynamic & Static; I also use them in combination with face walking or some string walking with selfbow. Depends what you want the arrow to do. These things are almost impossible to do with out some clearance in the sight widow for the shaft if you shoot upright.

Grip: that depends what the bow likes for your style of shot. Some like a more controlled grip some SB's like a more relaxed grip. Depends on the shape of riser you have. Most selfbow I have shot upright like a more controlled grip especially with a dynamic release shots.

What ever you utilize to make a shot, a good shot. a lethal shot when you hit the woodline your only getting one to put meat in your families mouth so make that one a good one.

Thanks hedge, I'll have to experiment and see what works best. All my bow experience has been with a compound thus far so that's all draw settle pin and squeeze trigger until surprise. Last thing I want to do is wound an animal, it's not fair to them to suffer for us being to lax practicing.
