Ok, I went out and purchased a "allen" type bow release yesterday, I launched about 15 shots but for some reason all are low? I knocked the release under my arrow knock when drawing back because I don't have the loop that goes around the arrow knock. Anyone know why I'm shooting low. My uncle told me a peepsight is also required? I am shooting around 4-8 inches low at ten yards....very weird.

    Switching from fingers to release will change the location of your anchor point. Find a spot that is comfortable for you, then practice anchoring in that same position. Remember, consistent form puts arrows in the bullseye. When you have found your new anchor point change your site settings to bring your arrows to your mark.

    Also, as mentioned, what type of rest are you using? Some rests do not work well with a release.
