TRY it, you will see. PLEASE!
The introduced vertical error GREATLY affects horizontal errors.
I have done vast experimentations in this. Have several archers and
several bows. The archers were of varying degrees of skills. It
worked well on all but the top archers.
I challenge you to test this.

How much narrower depends on the deflection introduced to the arow,
