    Fellas,
    what causes my arrows to kick when released? The arrows do not fly straight and hit the target at an angle. My Bow is an older Bear Buckmaster 4000 set at max weight of 56lbs and I shoot Muzzy 4 blade 100grn broadheads with Carbon Express Mutiny 29" arrows.
    Thanks for any helpful ideas....

    There is a number of things that will give you poor arrow flight. Your arrows need to be spined for the weight and length you shoot. Your arrow rest should be positioned in the correct place, center shot. Nock height, brace height, axle to axle length, cam timing, fletching clearance, shooting form, etc. all affect the arrow's flight. A broadhead on the front end will usually magnify improper arrow flight. I would suggest going to a local shop that knows what they're doing to get some help. Not enough info and too much to diagnose over the internet.

    Good luck.

    or it can be something simple like moving a llittle bit as you shoot or if the string hits your arm but the same thing was happening to me with muzzy 4 blades today
