    24 Hour Shoot

    Some of the junior members in our club had the idea of holding a 24 hour shoot for charity. Great idea. We started shooting at 10pm with the aim of shooting 10000 arrows in 24 hours. A few people had volunteered (or been volunteered) to shoot the whole time but most people just...

    It Took Me Ages To Get Round To Doing It. But Now I Have...

    I had fancied trying archery since a child when I used to cut sticks from the hedgerow and add a bit of string to make a bow. Then I used to shoot my dad's bamboo canes up the garden. (only broke one window in the greenhouse as far as I recall). When I was a bit older a...

    I'm a self-taught archer.

    Ive been in love with archery since I saw it in a movie when I was 7 years old. I quietly admired it from a distance for years until I got my own bow when I was 13. It was just a 12# junior bow that I found in a sports store and I begged my parents to let me get it. They agreed...

    A Falling Arrow

    When I was about 11 I had a suddon intrest in archery. I remember the shop that ordered it ordered me a left handed bow, (I'm a righty) and I had to wait to get another bow; they came from italy so it took a while to come over here. As soon as had gotton the right bow I took the...

    Starting

    I was sure I would like archery so I bought a basic recurve kit straight off. A friend from work in an archery club offered to give me some lessons and you cant say no to that can you. It was summer so it was outside which showed up the first problem I hadnt thought of, it is...

    For the last few years,

    archery and bow hunting have not only become my primary hobby but also my passion in everyday life. Seldom does a day go by where I am not tinkering with one of my bows or a set of arrows, reading a bow hunter magazine or book, or watching a bow hunting show on DVD or online. To...

    Best… Shot.… Ever!

    I was at my first archery class. It was my last shot, and that balloon was still there. I hadn't come very close to it in my last shots, but I wanted it to prove that coming late didn't make me any less an archer. My compound had two pins, green and red. I used the green to mark...

    Eggcellent Shot!

    I'm accurate :D I was just out the other day messing with my bow, when my friend came up and we started target practice. The first target was some paper on a hay bale, which we both took turns shooting at and I managed to shoot directly into the middle of it, which I was...

    People Say I'M Talented :D

    I've been doing archery for years now. So I have had a lot of practice before we went doing it with school. We were in England for a week, and we played some archery games, really fun. The first game was: Choose your cutlery. You get 3 arrows, if you hit black, you'll get a...

    Late Start, But Oh Well!

    Today has been the first time in a very long time that I've drawn a bow, and did I loose track of time and have fun trying to get the hang of shooting. I can say my favorite thing (so far) is the sound the arrow makes when it strikes the target. :-) I can't wait to get my own...

    Amazed

    I have only done archery in school. I have heard that the school equipment sucks. I wouldn't know. I tried out for our small school's Archery Team (only about 100 people in each class). I made it. That was one of the best moments of my life: shooting everyday after class...

    I have a longbow that I named Little

    Lamplighter. I love it, but I think I need to get heavier arrows, preferably ones with glued on tips, because I hate have to re-screw loose tips.

    Started In My Teens.

    I've been doing archery for about 30 years. Back in the early '80s, the folks had just bought some acreage about an hour from home; shortly thereafter, they bought my brother and me recurve bows, arrows and a target. We'd go up periodically and shoot, dad teaching us the basics...
