Archery Training 12/02/16

At training tonight I opened my bag and my bow stand fell apart. It took several ends to find the metal part that fits into the leg part to allow the leg to be screwed into it. It strange, but not having a stand is debilitating. You can’t put your bow down. Sometimes I wonder… Read More »
