Form for me and specifically a longer draw length. This allowed me to get proper bone to bone contact and allowed the pin to settle and float on the target.
I can also shoot from many twisted positions accurately but maintaining the upper body T and bone to bone is key for me.
What took me to the next level competitively was learning a back tension release with a hinge in the garage over the winter. I didn't use it in competition much but it did teach me a proper release and my scores and wins showed it.
When I started shooting 3-d I was a poke and hope guy with every form flaw imaginable. I had a goal of shooting 270's consistently on a 30 target course. ( no 11 rings or 12's)
I tried the shorten your draw crap until I was over 2" short. Then a coach saw me and started walking me through some things. I immediately saw improvement and my scores jumped. I was quickly a 280's shooter and even moved back to the open stake. Shot a few 290's but wasn't consistent enough so then cam the bt work. I have started consistently shooting 290's and with 11 rings was shooting up scores.
I don't shoot much 3-d now but when I do the form carries me through and I still shoot 290's in the hunter class without any practice judging yardage and very little shooting.
