3. ARE YOU LEFT OR RIGHT HANDED?
Here is a simple method to know which is your dominant eye: With both eyes open, point with your thumb at an object 5 meters away; then close your left eye.
YOU ARE RIGHT HANDED
If your thumb is still centred on the target, this means that you use your right eye to aim.
A right-handed archer aims with his right eye, holds his bow with his left hand and pulls the bowstring with the right hand.
YOU ARE LEFT HANDED
Your thumb is left of the target, which means that you use your left eye to aim.
A left-handed archer aims with his left eye, holds the bow with his right hand, and pulls the bowstring with his left hand
