Portsmouth Sunday 21/02/2016

Today we shot a Portsmouth, which was probably a good idea after shooting the fun Valentine’s Day shoot last week. Some of us also have the 10th Annual Portsmouth shoot at the Fenland Archery Club in a months time, so we need all the practice we can get. It all went quite well, there were… Read More »

Archery Training 19-02-2016

Tonight there seemed a lot less of us shooting, we all shot at Portsmouth targets. Shooting didn’t really click with me to start off with with most arrows were going in the 8 or just cutting the 9 line. It wasn’t until about half way through the night that everything clicked and I started hitting… Read More »

Hoyt Carbon 720 Limbs

I finally succumbed to purchasing some Hoyt Carbon 720 limbs that I wanted. I ended up ordering them from Merlin Archery for around £208 + delivery.

Archery Training 29-01-2016

What a terrible night at training tonight. I did manage a few good ends but it seemed like the arrows were really going right tonight. I ended up having to wind out my button in order to get the arrows back to the centre of the target. I also managed to hit my arm a… Read More »
