She looks stunningly dangerous, but on the other hand, she's a blond and she hasn't learned how to tie her boots yet.
AAAHHHhhhh... the burn! good hit.
She needs a forearm bracer to protect her arm from having the bow string shave off skin, but she’s pretty.
I think the arrow should be on 'this' side of the bow.
Three finger release, arrow goes on the body side of bow.Thumb ring release, arrow goes on the non-body side of bow.Don't know for mechanical releases, never have used one.If you hold the bow correctly, the string won't slap your arm. Though I understand it is easier for men to hold the bow so the string doesn't slap the arm. Either wrist strength or shoulder geometry, I forget which. I do recommend new archers wear a bracer. Once you are experienced you can decide for yourself. And make sure the arm guard is long enough for your arm, getting a roll of skin caught between the string and the bracer hurts more than no bracer at all.
