learn archery (read all 2 entries…)

Bought my own recurve, a 45#, been going to a range regularly a few times a week for a month now. Learning and teaching myself mostly, aiming via instinctive. Lately, I’ve been trying to focus on consistency with good form. Finally figured out string picture to fix my horizontal variance. Still, compared to me shooting 45# bare bow with a foot-wide group (always a wild one in the group) at 20 yards, the kids shooting FITA still look amazing.



Have less than 10% body fat
Biggest Losers have it easy.

Spent the last 3 months dropping 5 pounds. 5 pounds. Calipers still tell me I’m right around 10%, not that it is all the trustworthy with me at the helm. Trying to drop and maintain and train at under 68kg is a bitch. Haven’t even managed the first part yet.

Finally went to an archery range this weekend after finding out a bunch of other people were interested in going. We took an hour “lesson” which was about 3 minutes total of explanation about recurve bows, arrows, and how to nock, draw, and loose (but not how to aim, oddly). I ended up doing a bit of reading on my own afterward and instinctive aiming is apparently not uncommon for trad archery.

In any case, I managed to at least be consistent in grouping my shots together for the first couple rounds before getting a better feel for aiming. The later rounds, I put 80% in the center, one round was 100%. We only shot from like 10 and 15 yards, probably but not bad for a first time.

I’m definitely interested in doing more, and being such a novice, I’m going to leave this on my list until I feel like I’m really learning.
