Me trying to remember to shoot

Just a quick note to say sorry there’s not been much from me recently. Long days at work sat in front of a computer screen means the last thing I want to do is boot up the computer when I get home. Added to this are shorter days which make it impossible to practice at night and weekends being spent with lots of work going on at the Briar Rose club’s new wood means I’m pretty busy.

On vacation this week with my family. Since I have no place to shoot, here’s some vacation content instead! Have I mentioned I’m afraid of heights?

We all know how important it is to have your bow setup right and ensure it is at the correct brace height. I wanted to offer a quick tip to all archers out there for checking your brace height on your bow, which doesn’t involve having a rule.

When I made up the last batch of arrows for Sharon, I crested them in colours to match her fletchings, are pink and…

Hardest lessons to learn in archery – Why does my arrows comes off the rest

I’ve had this question come up a couple of times recently, so I thought I would put a quick reply up now in an attempt to help people out.

“Why does my arrow keep flipping off my rest or bow when I draw up?”

Okay there can be a few reason why this can happen, so I’m going to pick out the three most common ones.

  • Twisting of the bow string.
  • Throwing your bow arm.
  • Damaged rest.

After a long day yesterday, it’s time to reflect on my shooting. It was the first time I have enjoyed a competition in about a year! I think I’m getting the joy back for the sport and I’m really excited to practice again. My scores reflected how much practice I put in- which was zero! (Although my 50 score was surprisingly alright)
Now it’s time to rest and plan how I’m going to get bowfit again! 🏹💪

Okay, so this is not one of the most pleasant sounding products I have encountered, but if you can look past the name you can have pretty decent paint.
Lee Ankers of Heritage Longbowswas kind enough to provide me with same sample colours (pink, white, orange and purple) to try out. There are obviously other colours but these would prove to provide a good selection as it…
