String walking defines itself when you 'walk' the nock point up or down your
string to gain or reduce yardage.

Good friends see through the act and still appreciate the performance.
- 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
