While today's technology makes it far easier for an untrained archer to achieve a high rate of accuracy; there is nothing that compares with the satisfaction of mastering traditional archery. This is the ultimate benchmark for shooters reach. Anyone can shoot decently with telescopic sight, zero resistance rests, and a mechanical release. Becoming a competent traditional archer takes it beyond science and into the realm of art.
Correct hand position in archery is a vital part of your form. An incorrect grip can cause torque on the bow causing the arrow to fling left and right. Keep a 45 degree angle grip as well as a relaxed hand to limit your impact on the shot.
