A few from the bookshelf

Home isolation opportunities

With the general public becoming increasingly concerned about COVID-19 and most if not all archery clubs suspending there open shoots or club activities its leaving many wondering what to do.

This time does offer us the opportunity to catch up on some reading or YouTube videos, so I’ve put this list together of books ive found useful. I’ll be posting a list specifically on target panic in the next couple of days.

By the way these aren’t in any order

Literature review – Shooting the Stickbow I think the best all round book for archers.

Literature Review – Idiot Proof Archery-How to Shoot Like a Pro

Literature review – Beginner’s guide to traditional archery great book and one of my favourites.

Not archery related but a great couple of books to read.

Literature Review – My Outdoor Life by Ray Mears

Literature review – How to survive by John Hudson



Thanks for reading and stay safe.

What’s on your archery bookshelf?

With the rise of the use of YouTube for instructional videos, with such diverse topics as those covering everything for an archer wanting to learn more or develop new skills, I wonder if the written word is becoming less important for some. There are videos on how to fletch an arrow, make a bow string, how to shoot traditionally etc etc. There are also the research videos on new bows or shooting theory. So what do you think?

Okay, before I get inundated with complaints about how I’m ditching YouTube, lets make it clear, I’m not.
What I am saying is there are times the written word, whether it is a good book or magazine article, is really useful.
So based on this thought I have a question for you…

What books make up your archery bookshelf?

Did you buy it following a recommendation, or do you like the author? Why do you find them useful? Is it the writing style or the subject matter? Or do you prefer YouTube?
Let me know.
Thanks for reading.
