Alex, I enjoyed Arnes description of how to practice. One other way i read recently and tried was by G. Fred Asbell in his book “Advanced Instinctive shooting for Bowhunting” in there he described using a one gallon paint can. He describes that if you put the cans thin wire handle on the same joint of the fingers and lift the can where the bottom is about 6″ off of the ground and relax the fingers right, the can should fall back flat to the ground. If the release is wrong the can will then fall on its side, so make sure the can is closed tight. For me that worked well to try, I went with a can that i had left from painting that had only about 1/4 full and it really helped me to get the feeling of a smooth release down.
