Correct hand position in archery is a vital part of your form. An incorrect grip can cause torque on the bow causing the arrow to fling left and right. Keep a 45 degree angle grip as well as a relaxed hand to limit your impact on the shot.
Hopi Kachina -- Left-Handed Hunter Kachina. The Left-Handed Kachina, Siyangephoyadx, is one of the Hunter Kachinas, and is always shown with a bow and arrow, and sometimes with a throwing stick. He is called Left-Handed, because his gear is reversed, and to draw an arrow from the quiver, he must use his right hand, rather than his left as is normal. (artist - Lowell Talshoma)
