If you are on the shooting line in the process of shooting an arrow, hold the string securely and gently let the arrow down from full dram and return it to the quiver. Then walk your bow back to the rack and hang it up and wait on the waiting line. If you see something unsafe let the teacher know immediately. DRY FIRE A bow should only be drawn when there is an arrow properly attached to the bowstring and it is being pointed in a safe direction toward the target. To shoot a bow without an arrow is called a “DRY FIRE” and can damage the bow, hurt you or a bystander.
