Recurve Bow Practice by NightsGem Recurve Bow Practice by NightsGem
We had a bit too much fun with our bows today. I was using my 35 pound compound bow, while David used the 45 pound recurve. We mostly hit the target! xD However, most of our arrows are crap because they're old enough that the feathers keep coming off. There's only one arrow with all three still left.

We started with six arrows. We lost four in the brush pile and over the fence. Fun, huh? Once we get better, I am definitely going to take him to the shooting range with me and go to the archery section. I've found I really like archery. :) I got the picture right before he let the arrow loose.

I have never murdered. :) I have never even killed an animal, except indirectly. I don't hunt. All of the animals I have are from secondhand sources, and they have been obtained perfectly legally. I check laws very thoroughly.

Thank you, but leave him out of our little debacle. He has nothing to do with anyone and has never harmed or killed an animal with a bow or any other weapon.

Flip your right hand over. (so your index finger is above your middle finger)
Index finger above the knock, middle and ring bellow of knock. (This is called a 1,2 grip, or split grip.)
GET YOUR INDEX FINGER OFF THE TIP OF THE ARROW! You can lose your finger tip doing that.
Tilt your bow to the right so you don't bruise your arm.
You should be using your back muscles to pull the string.

He likes to shoot with his hand upside down for some reason. *shrug* So, once you're ready to shoot, remove your index finger from above the arrow? What do you mean by tilt the bow to the right? :) Thank you.

I shoot different than David does. I'll have someone take a picture of me if I ever find any of my arrows in the brush pile.
