Your hand placement on the bow grip can make or break consistency in shot placement. Do you have the proper bow grip?

In this video, LAS TechXpert, P.J. Reilly, demonstrates the proper way to grip a bow. This applies to target archers and bowhunters alike.

Reilly also talks about a product that’s designed specifically to encourage proper hand placement on a bow. It could be just what you need to cure your bow grip problems.
