Who out there has ever played or tried out archery? Ah, so fun
I've never tried it but I'm planning on doing so. I might take it as one of my classes next semester.
yay!! haha... it's pretty fun once you get used to it! Sucks that I can't continue on though. We had short lessons once a week at my old school.
Digging up ancient threads... Too bad this seems to have died. Archery is so cool, any archers around anymore? I know someone commented on my 'hello' thread.....
How long have people been shooting?
Do you guys shoot barebow or use sight?
I've only been shooting for a little less a year, and don't even have my own bow yet. I shoot barebow, and will never ever start using sight.
omg its awesome. when i first tried it. i had this basic longbow. and i was like. alright sweet long bows. and then all these elementary school kids come w/ composite bows that are huge and i'm like. aw shit
I did archery when I was smaller to get a highschool scholarship.
It was really fun, yet it started to make my joints weak.
thread for all archers
I hope to find more archers around here.
So what bow do you shoot with, and do you shoot competition???
robin hood and legolas FTW!!!!
LEGOLAS! FTW~ you should make a Fc called "The Bow's With Arrows Fc" and ill be co-owner
can you shoot an apple off someone's head?
this is dangerous:amazed
Okay, sounds like a good plan, under General Fc's???
Yes, theoretically I can shoot an apple of someons head 18-25 meters away from me, without accidents.
would you win against robin hood???? or would you return as a hedgehog??
Robin Hood is fake, so would that make me the winner
you can become co-owner if you want to
i want to
okay, I'll make you coowner, link is in my sig.
feel free to make a banner
Zabuzza if you also want to be a co=-owner that's allright, you can be the last co-owner
for a while. PM me if you want to. I have to go soon.
But no archers here so far?
I'm an archer!! ...sorta xD
I took lessons at a camp I went to for 3 years. I'm pretty decent, though I don't have any opportunities to do it anymore.
I won an arrow signed by Robin Hood ~the best Camp Councilor~ in a tourney I participated in. I got it mounted on my desk at home
Sounds like you have talent
Glad to hear you liked it. Why did you like it so much?
I think it was because I seemed to have a knack for it.
Maybe it was beginners luck but it felt really natural when I first started. While most people around me shot pretty wild, I was able to at least hit the target every time, so I had decent accuracy from the beginning.
We started out with basic composites but later on they let us do a little with the compounds. That was fun
If it really felt natural, than it wasn't beginners luck.
I had the same, for some reason I knew from the beginning how to hold a bow, and how to shoot ( not perfect off course, but the important basics)
Compounds look amazing, I never shot with it, but I am planning to try it out once.
And yeah, compounds are a slice of heaven They are so much easier to wield.
I actually prefered composites for accuracy though. The compounds that I used tended to be so powerful that the arrow didn't fly straight xD
Actually that means that they used the wrong arrows. If you have stronger bow, you have to make sure that you have arrows, that don't break and fly straight. In other words, they have to be stronger too.
Compound looks great, but I still love to use my own recurve
(BTW you are now an official co-owner of the Fc)
Ah I see. Makes sense that the arrow should change with the bow
I guess almost everything in archery makes sense
