Definitely Concentrate actions to keep it drawn.

Additionally, holding a drawn bow count as "combat time" for the purposes of FP loss, even if you're not aiming at anything or have any enemies around to shoot. Finally, I'd probably apply penalties after a few second to the shot that is eventually made, perhaps using the speed/range chart, but I'd have to look it over to see what would be sensible - I'd not allow an unpenalised shot after more than 10 seconds though for sure!
If it's a Compound Bow I wouldn't assess any penalties, ditto if their ST exceeds the bow's draw by 5 or more.
