His form is real close to the guy Tom Clum coaches on that form video - Jason or Aaron?

Watched his shooting tips when I started archery last year. Almost copied his recommended style of canting the bow. But realized a few issues:

- It didn't work good for me on longer distances.

- Bow string kept hitting my arm when I focus on my target. May have been my fault because I was still trying to find my form.

- The shooting style won't work in indoor competition settings where shooters are less than 2 feet of each other.

Im experiencing the same at longer distances. The canting of the bow seems accurate for me till about 40 metres,beyond 40 a no cant is working better. Why is that how does the cant effect long shots?

Hayes is one of the archery channels I check out from time to time. Like all of them, I agree with some of his advice and some of it not. I am always impressed by his ability to shoot gear he makes himself, even if I disagree with some technique stuff.
Mostly I appreciate his form and execution.

His vids are some of the best out there. Like his presentations and he never intones the "this is the only way to do it" attitude. Puts it right out front that these techniques work for him and might not for you.

The one of his youngest son shooting a pig in FL was the best.

Aron Snyder. He’s a real wealth of knowledge even though he’s relatively new to single string. Bonus you get a bit of Tom Clum Sr with Aron. His form is a bit unorthodox, quite a lean and cant (he’s fixed it up some more recently) and his release looks a mess but he and Tom explain its due to flexibility and bicep just being in the dang way. But he can shoot!

To the O.P, I definitely like Clay Hayes very simply presented and informative videos

When you cant, your face follows and the vertical distance between eye and arrow is decreasing just enough to keep you on a very manageable gap at target.
If a no cant after 40 is better, it means two things: you change your execution and your point on while not canting is in the 40 yards area. Shooting past point on accurately was never an easy task.

Yes shooting past point on is tricky. In australia i shoot 2 devisions one is taa. Traditional Archery Australia that one max distance is 30m and only wood arrows can be used. Perfect for me as 30 metres is my point on distance. The other is ABA Australian Bowhunters Association that one carbon arrows may be used and max distance is 48 metres. So 30 metres three under and 50 metres split is my point on any distance over high 30 metres I'd change to split finger perfect. The last ABA comp i was in i got disqualified for swapping between three under and split finger. They claim it's face walking. I think thats a rediculas rule so was wondering in the states shooting 3d or simular field archery comps are you guys allowed to face walk/string walk?

Different Divisions have different rules. Yes, changing from 3 under to Split is face walking and under a division it can be a reason to be disqualified while under other division you are allowed to do it. If you are going to compete, you better learn the rules. What you think about them means zero.

Any class or division more "traditional" than WA Barebow does not allow face walking. That was as of the last time I checked the rules early this year.
