Bow arm guards come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs. Use a bow arm guard on whichever arm is holding the bow. They help keep loose clothing tucked away as well as prevent "burning" caused by the friction of the bow string rubbing against the arm when it is released. A proper stance or position by the shooter will also help prevent the released bow string from burning the arm holding the bow.
