Archery by PanHesekielShiroi Archery by PanHesekielShiroi
So, as some of you might know, I'm doing archery in my free time. A few weeks ago Eisfuchs decided to take a few pictures during practice (we're members of a shooting club), this is one of them.
The shooting course is located in some kind of small wood and sometimes you have to make quite some funny poses to shoot - like on this picture, standing on 3 poles. You even have to shoot while sitting in a treetop at some point. :)
Anyway, though this photograph might seem like merely posing in front of the camera, it's not - I shot and hit.
Traditional archery is a lot fun - you should try doing it yourself if you ever get the chance to. :)

Awesome photo! Have you ever gotten around to measuring your accuracy? My best score was 68.1MOA from a 10-round group at 15m.

Thank you! :)
And no, I haven't and I don't think the club I'm in actually does the whole measuring thing, either.

Thank you! :)
Sadly, the poles don't exist on the shooting range anymore. No more cool pole stances for me. :/

Indeed. But at least they still have the tree you're supposed to climb before you can shoot, which was always my favourite part. :)
And you definitely should try archery at some point, it's a lot of fun. :)

Super late reply, sorry! :')
Thank you. Sadly, quivers are quite expensive in general. I also didn't want to buy this one at first because it was a little pricy, but I think it was worth it. :)
And ... it's a longbow, btw. ;)
