When shooting your bow, get your forearm out of the way.

Oops. It does not feel good. \:\)

If you will change your grip that won't happen lol . But yes it does hurt . I will get my wife shooting with perfect form and nowhere close to hitting her arm . And then when I'm not there and she's shooting she hits it all the time . Can't teach women nothin .

Either your grip is wrong, or the draw length is too long—either way....yes, it hurts but it can be corrected.

Only thing worse than hitting your forearm is doing it twice in two days. Hitting it the second time on top of the bruise is brutal. I did this when I was first starting out. WOW!!!!!!!!!

DRaw length was too long

Worse than that is not having your thumb low enough on a crossbow. OMG that stings bad. Make u say a few choice words.

I learned the hard way about draw length...after hitting my forearm the third time, I was pretty sure my buddies draw length was a tad too long...Bruise lasted about a week.

Install a string stop on your bow if you dont have one already.

My draw is 31" and I have never even grazed my forearm, compound or recurve. Proper form is a must IMO.

I used to have a habit of rolling my shoulder forward when I was tired. That stopped completely the day I drew blood. \:\)
