Know this... the path you are about to go down in reading the article (and others on that site) can lead you to an empty wallet and likely some aggrivation as well. Especially if you aren't looking to go full-bore into target archery. ;)

Jere, thanks, but i think i have about the heaviest mass weight i can shoot on my bow already LOL i have other guys look at the weight system i built for it, and just look like they saw a ghost, the reason i want to know how to steady up my bow hand is so i can take off that weight, after about 60 shots, it gets really heavy LOL my bow weighs in around 7lbs or better... shoots smooth, and i can hit pretty darn well, it's just i don't want it that heavy anymore i see it as a crutch.

As for the hand shaking thats not a big issue. if you watch most people we all shake some. Its basicaly mind over matter so to speak or just plain aiming.
If you have your shot sequence in order than there is no problem. If you have noticed when trying to keep your pin what your aiming at the more you force it the harder it becomes. If you concentrate on the impact point of where your aiming the pin will center its self and your hand shakes will mean nothing.
If you dont have one get you a bow sling to pack your bow for both hunting and target.
I might have to dredge up some of my articles. I had some great write ups on BO so I guess I will have to start over.

Alot of Bowhunters suffer from what I call "Equipmentitis".
Get the bow as light as you want and then shoot the heck out of out. Stop worrying about hand movement and just concentrate on hitting the bull.
In my experience a rotten follow thru is more responsible for inaccuracy than hand movement. Force yourself to keep that pin on the target until you hear the arrow hit (If you find that's hard to do, then there is your problem ;) )
