    just shot a bunch today...I realized that after so many arrows I start to go downhill....then I give up in frustration for the day.

    thanks for the tips so far.

    Happens. I start to slide hard somewhere between a half hour and hour of steady shooting, depending on how I'm feeling that day. Recognize that point, and either hang it up for the day or take a break. You won't do yourself any favours, muscles get tired, you'll just develop bad habits trying to compensate.
    I never took lessons, just a few pointers from friends. A proper grip on the bow and a consistent anchor point (my thumb hits the corner of my mouth I think is mine?) will do wonders. Then just concentrate on your release, make up the rest.... I can put five arrows into a tea saucer at 60 yards most times now, good enough for me....
