Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Combination shoot question.
- I would agree that you need to shoot some calibration shots with any new bow, but this could be solved by simply giving time for everyone to practice each station before the shoot begins. In theory a good archer should be able to pick up any bow and within a few shots have it shooting accurately. This kind of shoot would be fun and would give people a chance to try some styles that they don't normally get to try.--RichardOn Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 12:30 PM, logantheboweyder <logantheboweyder@...> wrote:

ICK! My first shot out of a bow is completely unpredictable, and without shooting a couple of ends, all you are doing is learning about the bow. Give me an opportunity to shoot a different bow, and I'm happy for an hour... Give me a bow and tell me I need to shoot it at an event without practicing first, and I would rather go catch an A&S class. We have archery practice for a reason.

If we had any, we'd like to add a fourth station of Mongolian horse bows to be shot from a mounted saddle. Any thoughts, comments, or related experience would be appreciated.

Well, let us agree to disagree on this issue.
