Last weekend, our friend Allison taught us how to shoot a compound bow. I’ve never done this before and apparently my technique left something to be desired.
Here’s Jenny trying it.
Here’s what I left looking like. It's so purple that it's almost pretty. I managed to actually break the plastic guard I was luckily wearing at the time. I can’t imagine what this would look like if I hadn’t been wearing it.
Though, I did manage to hit the target with all but the last arrow. So, yay me.
So, here’s your take home lesson. Make sure to keep your bow holding arm slightly bent and out of the way of the twanging cables if and when you ever try shooting a compound bow.
And you thought this blog only provided tips on crafts and cooking.
