- While doing research on period archery, I often get the idea that we
are misrepresenting the wand shoot. While I can't find anything
specific on the shoot, I am starting to infer from my reading that
the wand was not a stick stuck in the ground but a small stick (3"
or so) that was sharpened and used to fix the mark onto the butt or
hang awreath from. A medieval golf tee so to speak. Splitting the
wand, just meant hitting the peg and, presumably, the exact centre
of a mark target.
Not that I mind our version of a wand shoot.

There is a company here in Dayton, OH that makes and sells burlap
bags, etc. I have e-mailed them to ask about prospective costs.
