How do you guys hold your bow when you shoot it. Do you have your hand open, or do you keep it closed, and grip your bow ?

Correct. Don't grip it like a hammer.

Relaxed. Fingers are curled naturally but not touching anything.

I open my hand as wide as I can get it to settle the grip then allow fingers to curl back around while still staying relaxed. I have found that helps the 'feel' of the grip to remain the same for each shot.

Not sure if this link will work but I have a relaxed grip. Everything is relaxed even my fingers so they are slightly curled. Tension would be similar to holding a baby bird.

Open hand, let the bow fall forward in your follow through. gives me a great shot when I can actually practice what I preach

I shoot mine with my finger tips touching the front of the grip.When I first started I would shoot open hand during practice but when that big buck would come up had a problem with grabing the bow and griping the bow tight. With the finger tip method it stopped that. Of course I got 15 other issues that this won't fix.
