Tradition/History: Archery

We spent the day at a RennFaire: a fantasy of what we’d like to imagine was the best parts of ages past. Not much is truly authentic, but this archer is. He makes his own long bows out of genuine woods; and he practices the art as it was. He can shoot at an amazing degree of accuracy from 1000 yards away from the target.

  1. That’s a cool photo. 1000 yards is a long way to shoot an arrow accurately. What was his target? It’s great to here that people are using wood and not just composite bows, there’s a lot of skill in making a wood bow.

    Super shot and 1000 yards is remarkeable, as I once watched a Samurai Bow Master fail to get inclusion in the Guiness World Record as he could only put 9 out of 10 shots in a 4 inch square at 600 yards, the 10th arrow was aquarter inch outside the square. Best shooting I ever saw. Many riflemen couldn’t match it!

    A nice capture of the skill of his marksmanship while using a bow and arrow that he created.
