Are you thinking about using archery as your backup weapon when SHTF? In fact, you may even consider it as a primary method to protect yourself in a catastrophe. For thousands of years, people have been using bows and arrows for combat and hunting. There are many uses for it, but a really major advantage of archery is that if you miss or hit your target, you can simply pick up the arrow and use it again.

Here is some proper archery form training if you would want to grab that bow.

Your stance, in which you position your feet while shooting, is the basis for a good shot. Your stance should be solid and steady, arrow to arrow, as it also helps your balance.
Aim for correct elbow rotation. Set your bow arm's elbow properly and maintain its position during your shot. By doing this, your upper body will then be aligned, resulting in a more powerful shot.
Make sure to put your fingers on the string for every shot correctly, and remember to consistently position your hand in accordance with the bowstring.
While aiming is necessary, it is equally essential to apply a strong release and follow-through. By working on the correct techniques, your shots will become stronger.
In conclusion, proper archery form is important. You may even make your own bow out of things that you find. It might not be the real one, but it will do when the time calls for it.

    Excellent. Great video. Love it. Very good refresher for me. Makes me want to go out and shoot my bow again.

  2. DO NOT Lock your elbow on your Bow brace arm – this will cause serious joint pain/ issues over time. Also Never Forget your wrist guard (Tough Leather) on your Bow brace arm.
