this is a training session..
to see if i was doing anything wrong in my shoots...
the thing with archery is
that evena minor deviation in our aiming,
will result in a major deviation in our arrows path
the yellow line is a perfect shot....
say my aim was deviated to the right only slightly..
the flight of my arrow would be deviated a lot more to the right
and go off taget on the target board (target face)
this effect is magnified as the distance
'under 18 tournament's have 4 distances
30m, 50m, 70m and 90m...
imagine at 90 metres...
only the slightest movement of my bow to the left
would cause my arrow to go greatly off target
and even miss (0 points!)
and to not make things easier
the arrow flies in a parabola...
the fight of the arrow vertically,
in the y axis, depends on
the length that i pull the bow string..
a greater pull makes the arrow go higher
and vice versa
every pull has to be the same...
it just makes getting a bull's eye...
how do you say it...
This is (lebey kurang) the 'feel' of a tournament
Target boards just 'begging' to be shot at
Yes, the thing on the tripod is a telescope... it is crucial in the long distance events, unless you're superman
Notice also, the guy on the right, he's left handed, everything about his gear is different..
yes, there are that many people in a tournament, probably more
