The Life & Times Of An Amateur Archer
Right now I’m sat cross legged at the field watching some of the club shoot whilst I rest my poor aching shoulders.
Although I have finished a little earlier than I was expecting, tonight’s shoot has been very satisfying.
Firstly, I seem to be grouping very comfortably at 40 yards. I’ve even been getting 3/4 shots happily in the gold… Which was nice.
I’ve also had to work hard at being focussed this evening; the weather is hot and sticky, there are midgies and flies galore and my favourite distractions have been here making me giggle.
Lastly, I have had the very satisfying experience of shooting off my first nock in the gold! Huzzah! Shame it means that I’m down to 5 shootable arrows as two need fletching, and the other has now lost a nock…
Still, I’m feeling rather pleased with myself 🙂
