This is a quick message to say that there are a few new developments here in the near future. I hope to be launching a couple of new sections or categories of articles for this site.
A walk with… will cover informal interviews with archers I’ve met, giving an insight into their love of archery, how they got into it initially and so on. It is based on the idea of chatting with them as they walk round the woods shooting.
Behind the counter… is aimed at businesses associated with archery, whether these produce bows, custom leather worked quivers, or whatever, giving them the opportunity to provide some insight for readers.
So why am I doing this?
This is a new development for the Off the arrow shelf blog so I hope you all enjoy it. The reasoning about this is pretty simple really, like all good ideas. Quite often I am being asked about archery suppliers, where you can get the arrow shafts from or which bow to go for. So I thought I would create a series of articles on different archery related shops, suppliers etc.
Before I start I’d like to make a couple of things clear. I have no company sponsorship or formal connection to these businesses. Yes I may have bought products from them in the past and even written review on some products, but I am not sponsored.
I’ve also met loads of people over the past few years I’ve been doing this hobby and running this site. Some have become good friends and nearly all have a wealth of stories or advice that I feel would be great to share.
I will still be writing shoot reports, equipment reviews and linking to other useful resources for archers.
Let me know what you think and thanks fro reading.
As a new archer any information is useful. Most club members have their own preferences and tend to push those. A shop will be promoting its own merchandise. You might just be impartial and therefore far more useful.

Thanks for your comment and welcome to the hobby. Everyone has their favourites whether it is a bow style, manufacturer or shop but I try to be as impartial as I can.
Thank for reading.
Great idea, it would be especially interesting to me to have some tales from the long timers out there. The bio of Lewis Chuck in the NFAS magazine really made me stop and think about how fortunate we really are and what a true gent is. Any similar would be brilliant.
