Just wondering if there are any archers on the community, I would class myself as a beginner archer and used to shoot a couple of years back (moved out the area of my club), planning to get back into it locally once everything is back to normal again.
I used to live in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, its got the only double moated Norman castle in the world and was where William the conqueror accepted the submission of the English after the battle of Hastings. Thought I would get into some more traditional activities of the area so I had a go at archery, I am already a trained marksman after my time in the Air Training Corp so enjoy shooting of various sorts.
Recurve - currently on just 28lb limbs as this was my main bow
Horsebow - have a basic snakeskin horsebow at around 45lb
I also have a Japanese Yumi bow (Samurai bow) - its around 2.2m long, I have yet to shoot this bow as I need to get some additional strings and make up some arrows as they are just over a metre long with an overdraw to past the ear rather than to the lip.
I also plan to get myself a proper English longbow once I get a bit better, was planning to see if I can pull a Mary Rose bow with a rolling draw with a ridiculous draw weight of up to 185lb - might just go with something nicer to shoot though!
Anyone else into archery at all?
