Last week I tried a different way to draw the bow and was amazed at how much easier it was on the shoulder. Holding the bow close to the chest with both arms bent and then pushed with the bow arm and pulled the string with the right arm. Worked like a champ. I mentioned this to my brother and he said he'd been doing this for years because of his shoulder. Can't recall seeing this discussed here and thought I'd bring it up in case its helpful to others.
