Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Combination shoot question.
>I tend to agree. I once carried both my crossbow and my longbow out to shoot the woods walk portion of the champions's shoot at Pennsic, as I had seen Syrian do many times. However, switching from hand bow to crossbow to hand bow made me shoot both badly, and those were my own bows with which I had practiced prior to the event. On the other hand, having one station in a competition where I was forced to use unfamiliar equipment might be challenging.

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.
