Don't forget to keep shooting during the season. Practice is not for just pre-season.

I probably practice more during the season than pre season to keep everything dialed in , including my form .

I love to shoot I don't think i could stop anyway. I just have to tell myself to leave my bow alone. I love to tinker, but I have it set where it needs to be for hunting. I need to just leave it alone.

Another thing I do is take a judo point with me when I hunt to shoot at rotten stumps , dirt clods , or squirrels .

You do not have consistent form. Work on your anchor point. That is probably an issue. Does your bow fit you well. Can you take a picture at full draw for us to see? Your draw length can be too short or most likely too long. That can lead to inconsistent shooting.

I like to shoot a shot during season. A shot just like I would be shooting at a deer.

Yes, your anchor point is too high. Your nuckle should be below your ear around your jaw bone.

I anchor my index knuckle in the hollow just below my earlobe. As long as your anchor point is a solidly repeatable and firm point, you should shoot with consistency.
