How tight should a bow sling fit?

Question:
How tight should a bow sling fit on my bow? Should it be snug or loose or somewhere in between?

Answer:
It should be loose so that it doesn’t rigidly connect your hand to the bow. You don’t want any more contact with the bow than is necessary. The wrist sling is used only to keep you from dropping the bow when you make a perfect surprise release that causes the bow to jump forward into your fingertips. If you shoot with a closed hand you won’t gain any benefit from a wrist sling and may just as well get rid of it. If it doesn’t do anything for you then it will only serve as one more thing to worry about during the moment of truth. There are enough of those already.
