Some Ariel Shooting

Postby Kirkll » Sun Aug 08, 2010 9:12 am

I've got a couple 16 year old kids here I'm getting into the archery scene. I've built a bow for Ben and am working on another for his brother Connor right now. These film clips are their first experience shooting Ariel targets, and they are having a ball! :lol:

I thought I'd share it with you guys. there are several clips here.

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

You need to build one of wingshooters throwers. With it you do not need anyone to throw the targets, it works great .
I reviewed it a while back, and love it.

Kirk
I have some round ethafoam targets. Need them for these boys? I like the way they fly better than those you are tossing. Also don't horseshow the targets as much--- less angle on the throws. Have the target go straight up rather than across. Hill shot his that way, I suppose you can get used to it but I prefer them straight up...seems easier to hit.

A suggestion.... shoot ROUND targets--- with exact centers painted. The eye won't follow a square target as well---the edges spinning won't allow the eye to follow it as well. Just a suggestion. You can also use layers of card board cut into a round target. Plastic skoal cans work well as targets too (no metal ones). Clay pigeons are cool but you must be certain the thrower wears safety glasses.

But if you need some round targets for these youngsters to learn on I can send you some of my old ones. Let me know, it's no big deal.

That is cool of you to get these guys started...
