A couple of dear friends, who I would consider experts in the field of archery, were kind enough to give the Moose and I a beginners lesson. Let me tell you, Dragon Lady, and Spud sure know their stuff! They came well equipped. Compound bows, arrows, and the accouterments needed.
Have you seen a compound bow lately! They are bad ass looking (excuse the french)! There's no other way to describe them. Definately menacing!
I on the other hand ended up having to use a recurved bow the Dragon Lady brought along for me to try. Reminds me of Robin Hood. I think I did pretty good but I won't be robbing from the rich and giving to the poor anytime soon! No fancy gadgets for sighting, etc. Just you, the bow, arrow and target.
If I ever consider trying the compound bow again, I need to do some push ups! I just didn't have the upper body strength to pull it back. I was so embarrassed.... something else I need to work on..
It was great fun! Thanks again to Dragon Lady and Spud for all the instructions. Now, if I can just remember..
