Yes removal of the silencers would be good. There is an Open division in SCA
target archery that will allow your bow as long as it does not look to
modern.. aka plastic silencers.. cat whiskers, balance bar, peep sites..
etc. just try to make it look like a stick and string and it will be fine.
Bring it to your first event as is and a spare string. There should be more
than enough people there to assist you on your way.
