Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well. I am not new to archery but I am new to the recurve. I had just inherited a 50 pound recurve, I know it is a lot to start off with but it is the bow I got. The arrows I am using are Warriors 500 spine with a 125 grain tip. The way I am choosing to learn to aim is with 3 fingers under and the knock as close to my pupil as possible. At 10 yards I can put em in there pretty good by placing the arrow about 10" below the center of the target. As I go back past 12 yards the arrows start pushing left. My sight picture on my right eye is mostly string so I try to have both eyes open so that I can see the arrow with my other eye. I am noticing I have have a hard time focusing, the arrow and target is fuzzy. As I go back do I need to hold off to the right as well? My impression I got from what I read about this method of aiming is that I hold the arrow in straight line with the target. I am having a blast with this thing but I am trying to learn right and not develop any bad or counter productive habits. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
