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.
