Re: String walking
- ? Unless it can be documented as having existed in period; Its not.
I'm shooting off of a cut out shelf on a fiberglass recurve and I
have two metal bowstring nocks which I'm told is also not period. Do
I need to get a different bow and bowstring? If not why is one legal
and the other isn't?
Even more confused,
- One more thought on the subject.
I've never seen anyone string walk with out snap nocks As the arrow
must stay on the string with out fingers to hold it. I've tried to make
self nocked arrows that have a snapnock design but they split after 2 or 3
shoots to much outward pressure I don't think our ancestors had the time to
waste on fitting arrows to strings
So to document string walking all you need to do is find plastic snapnocks
with the cell phones and MREs
