    Aim high and then come down to the target.

    That would be my first thought. Also try standing close to your target a few feet, don't worry about what your spot is until your comfortable with your form.

    All good advice! These guys know what they are talking about. If that doesn't help, check your anchor point you may want to drop it down a bit.

    randy ulmer has an article in bowhunting magazine about shooting with your eyes closed to cure trigger anticipation problems. i had some problems with mechanics as did my 13 year old daughter. after some time in front of a 4x8 block of foam, we learned what proper release actually was. i would say give it a try. i have also found that i am more steady starting low and coming up on a target. i think it has something to do with the ability to more effectively control shoulder muscles when going up rather than going down. i hope this helps.
