One our TAS members posted this picture on the Facebook group. Dan made a comment that he may have been taught by Howard Hill because of the bent arm. We had a guy at our local club that felt he would shoot better when he crouched down.

  Archery does come in many forms.

  Sadly very few people won't take the time to play with much other than the "English" style archery that found it's way to our country.

  Archery can be such an intriguing hobby.

I have a hunting buddy that’s still shooting at 84. He always shot longbows up until 3 year’s ago, and then switched to shooting a Hungarian style bow. He shoots off the hand and loves it.

It would be very interesting to have someone smarter than me do some quantitation testing. How much force DO you need. How far are they shooting ? At what size game ? All of us talk about penetration etc, but... guys like him survive because what he does works, at least well enough.

Hunting Africa with that bow and arrow gives the answer: he has stones in his loincloth

Something universal around the world is teaching children. Here is an Inuit, Allakariallak teaching his son, Phillipoosie. Check out the flares in the limbs up by the nocks. allakariallak and his son Phillipoosie Inuit 1921.jpg

Wonder if the bow and arrows are from whalebone? Looks like just two arrows, the other one by the fathers right foot.

I had the same question in my mind: are not those two ribs glued in the middle to make a kid bow?

No doubt his target is something that will ruin his day, should he need a second shot, and make his wife a (happy?) widdow.

Have to remember that all he needs for penetration is into the gut for anything from small antelope to elephant. He can wait until the animal dies from septicemia. For lion, etc. he would be using a spear, not a bow and arrow.

That last pic looks like something I saw in an Adam Sandler movie.
