    Who does yoga as part of their training? I started today and all I can say is I will keep doing it! It is way harder than it looks and I can see it as a way to relax tired muscles after a day of bushwacking.

    Solid anchor

    Just curious to hear some anchor points others use. I have always been in the corner of the mouth but during actual hunting situations I tend to draw longer and always pick a spot at the bottom of the chest to compensate for it. I'd like to find a rock solid anchor.
