Where Can You Find Archery Answers?
you plunk down big bucks for a bow, don't you want to know
What are the
different types of bows, and how many pounds of pull you need? And what about
the arrows? How long? Made of carbon or wood? Don't make the hundred-dollar-mistake
of ordering the wrong length of custom arrows like I did.
Whether you buy your equipment from a sporting goods store, archery store, or online, the sales people will ask you: What is your draw length?
BEFORE you start talking to sales people and shopping online for the best deals, I think you'll want all the bases covered.
why I wrote Archery Answers,
a book in clear, no-nonsense language to teach you all the stuff you need to
know and that you can apply immediately. I wrote this book to share with you
all I've learned. From personal experience I found that we don't want more confusing
information, we only need the right information, the facts that really matter.
Now fast forward a couple of months. You are an archer, yes a beginner, but you have confidence. Think of the conversations with your family and friends. You'll be gushing to share your love of archery, and they will want to hear about you and how you are progressing.
who know you will see you in a new light as capable and knowledgeable
Because you will be, and you'll feel more confident in ALL aspects of
your life. (And by the way, the archery range is a great place to make new friends
as well. Like-minded people will be glad to help you and give archery advice.)
Besides buying the correct gear in the first place, do you want to save even more money by making your own accessories? Yes, you can really make your own finger tab, bow stringer, armguard! Of course you can, and of better quality than the store-bought ones.
WARNING! After a day of shooting, some arrows could get damaged. (I know from personal experience-it's inevitable.) How do you repair an arrow if you lose the metal point in a log? How do your re-cement that feather perfectly when that fletch falls off? Archery Answers teaches you these critical bits of know-how and much more.
Included are many techniques, explanations, and instructions, all geared to the beginner. Archery Answers is loaded with over two hundred pictures.
