|Yes there is indeed a bullseye|
A few months ago I was catching up with my friend S and happened to mention about how I was interested in getting into archery. Well apparently S has been shooting since he was a kid and said that he would be more than happy to teach me the basics! He also had a few other friends that were interested in learning as well and so plans were made.
Life happens though and it wasn't until this past weekend that we were able to fit in a quick archery 101. The group lesson turned into a private lesson which was just fine with me. S took his instructor duties very seriously and had everything ready when I got there. He even picked up new equipment- six carbon arrows with practice field tips and a foam target for me to practice with. We used his wooden longbow with a 35lb draw weight. I'm an extremely visual learner so I asked him to demonstrate as he instructed me on safety and proper stance.
Elated by my tiny success, I walked down the range to pick up my arrows and set up for another round. "Repetition is the key to conditioning" and my second round showed huge improvement- 4 of the 6 arrows on target AND my very first bullseye! Even S was impressed. I decided to end on that good note and honestly my arms were also quite tired from using a bow that was a bit too heavy for me. S gifted me the arrows and the target as part of the lesson "fee" so all I have left to do is find a bow that fits me to practice with!
