How to draw a bow

American archers have popularized angular moves where the bowstring moves away from the body and then back to the anchor. Start by drawing a curved shape from one side of the center of the arc by drawing a heart shape like this. If you find that you can’t draw without your bow list up, it means the bow you’re using is too heavy (in other words, the bow’s draw weight is too high for you). As you move your bow hand into the riser, use the release hand to pull into the back wall of the bow (which is the end of the pull cycle so you can pull the line further).
