The only reason to move about with a full draw is you're trying to keep prey in sight while lining up a shot.
Emphasis this.
A lot of people have chimed in on why its a bad idea but there really is no upside to doing this.
Keeping an arrow knocked I can buy, though its still a little awkward but you draw in one smooth motion.
