Field & Stream’s Archery Myths

Somebody on archerytalk scanned and posted an article Field & Stream had last July on odd archery theories.  It is one of the most interesting things I’ve read, in a magazine, in a while.

(You’d think a company like F&S would want to make their stuff, like, available, but apparently they want you to buy the old stuff instead.  No doubt they’ve tried a paywall for their website.  Pro-tip: rather than putting up a paywall, why not just delete your website?  You save hosting, etc costs and the same number of people will have looked at it.)

(And if F&S wants to complain about me “stealing” their “intellectual property” to post here, I’ll say: 1. if you hadn’t discovered this you wouldn’t know that anything was missing 2. I am bringing attention to an excellent article that your magazine published. The following is free advertising for F&S.)

1-1

2-2

For some reason page 3 cannot be copied here. Summary: Whisker Biscuits are slightly slower than drop-away rests, but similarly accurate. Stabilizers may or may not improve accuracy, depending on you and your bow.

4-1

5-1

6-1

7-1

This is one of the most interesting things I’ve read in a magazine. And surprisingly, very surprisingly, I agree with nearly all of their conclusions.

As ever, the moral of the story is that you are unique and different (just like everyone else) and so you should try different things to see what works best for you.
