    Bow Arm Control

    A few years ago I had a slipped disc in my neck, a nerve was trapped, resulting in almost total loss of control of my left (bow arm) tricep for about 3 months. Ever since this, I am frequently unable to lock my bow arm properly, just as I get close to full draw, the arm relaxes, I then have to...

    Elmtree, Devon

    Shot my first field shoot of the year at Elmtree?s Roadford Reservoir woods yesterday. Elmtree always lay on a good 3D course and this one was no exception. The weather on the day was good, but it had rained all week so it was a bit muddy and slippery in places. After watching one of the top...

    Compound for Fingers

    Due to a neck problem, I am thinking of moving over to shooting a compound, not with a release aid, but off the fingers. I know that the axle to axle length will have to be long enough so that there will be little or no problem with finger pinch, although, I do have fairly small hands. What...

    Cloth Target Faces

    A friend was recently clearing out her attic and found an unused 4 foot/122cm Egerton cloth target face. She gave it to me as she hasn?t shot for at least 20 years. She said she won it in a competition many years ago. I was wondering how old it could be and when cloth faces were replaced by...

    I was talking to Ray Howells (GB Team Manager) at the week-end and he told me about an England Field Squad week-end next February. I have been asked if I would like to go. If someone of my age can be asked, then anyone could go. Even though I have only shot one GNAS field shoot (I usually...

    Unmarked distance judgement

    Up till now, all the field competitions that I have taken part in have been under IFAA/EFAA and NFAS. Under these governing bodies, no aids for distance judgement are allowed, you have to use your own judgement/guess to determine the target distance. I am about to take part in my first...
