    Default Not really hunting related but I had to share this video (archery) I'm impressed

    So since its still the off season and some of us still have that cabin fever in full swing, itching to get out and do some spring hunting I figured I would share this video that a buddy sent me a link to.. I am a avid archery guy but this just blew me away.

    I just watched this the other night. That is dedication and just absolute skill. Even when he is moving and jumping his accuracy is amazing.

    There was a time when mankind depended on the bow to feed himself.

    There was a time when entire countries went to war with the bow in hand. Or when entire countries defended themselves with the bow.

    Now we have whisker biscuits, lighted nocks, and Rage broadheads.

    Evolution?

    This is way cool. Thanks for the share. Kind of off topic, but this is one of the reasons why I choose to shoot traditional over a compound. Not that I will ever shoot a bow like this guy, but you could never shoot a compound like that. Using a traditional bow allows you to make quicker reflex shots relying more on eye hand coordination rather than relying on technology (sights, trigger releases etc.). I think archery is really a dying lost art and this guy takes it to a new level.

    I also have a thing about traditional, and was thinking the same thing about the compound......

    Just had a thought......they need to get this guy for the next Lord of the Rings movie. He could be the "Master Elf".........lol.

    Hard to believe how fast he could shoot 10 arrows. Simply phenomenal....!!!

    glad I was able to share something to keep our minds active haha.. I am a compound guy just because I do enjoy the aspect but I can shoot pretty well with a traditional long bow. But this guy has me taking notes as well as most archers.

    That was cool. Thanks for posting. I recently got back into archery after a couple of decades hiatus. This time I'm going the traditional route and it's becoming very addicting.

    Industrial revolution. We now "need" "stuff" so we have to work for 8, 10, 14 hours a day... & find a few spare minutes here or there to shoot a bow, or recreate the time we used to spend fulfilling our innate desire to be outside.

    I often feel I'm a couple hundred years late... then I get in a warm truck, go to a warm home, etc. etc. & realize I'm pretty blessed to be alive in 2015.

    And overpopulate an entire planet in the process. If we still relied on skills like only hunting with a bow to feed ourselves how many people would be around?

    I saw this recently too and realized how smart this guy was as well. Nobody chambers their rifle from the weak hand but most if not all shoot the bow from the wrong side with a reach over. I'll never be any good but I'd love to play around with some of these techniques
