Here’s a must watch video for the recurve or longbow shooter. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MF6PEw5_yRI
With regard to his shooting approach (as he called it...snap shooting...others may call it instinctive) I think what Fred was trying to describe was that he basically focused on the mark and pointed his arrow intuitively at it...as he mentioned, 'like a slingshot'. That's all, nothing fancy about it. His draw and thought process were more or less an afterthought to focusing on the mark, no great calculation or magic bean aiming mechanics required. It was simply an end to a means, a simple way to deliver the arrow to where it needed to go without ad-nauseum fretting about the details of an 'aiming system'. It certainly was a far cry from today's common approach to hunting with a bow. Which is in large part why his story and adventures were so refreshing to watch and listen to.
He may have been a savvy businessman, but he also recognized that the fun of shooting is just as important as the fun of making money. A cool dude...way before that term was invented.
Fred Trost interviewing Fred Bear. Anderson Archery held a bow clinic many years. I attended a bunch of them. I was probably there that year also. Fred Bear did seminars for them and was a great story teller.
ah, I bet he came back to full draw. Something I need to work on.
