A Wandering Minstrel BS: Any Archers out there? (76* d) RE: BS: Any Archers out there? 18 Nov 10


60 lbs is pretty heavy. My own club has had an outbreak of home built longbows recently but they average in the 35-50 lb range. even so they will easily cast an arrow 100 yards though the accuracy goes to hell beyond 30 as you have to shoot more like a clout.

When I responded to Silas I was thinking 60 yards which seems to me to be a likely distance for hunting. One of my compounder friends normally groups all golds at 80 yards. Using the recurve I'm lucky to group outer blue :)
