  1. Wow!! That guy’s unreal! And the history is fascinating. I never knew any of that stuff.
    Don’t tell anyone, but I’ve been an archery fan since I was a kid, when my dad bought me a nice bow and I sort of live the dream when I’m gaming — I always play an archer if one is available.

    • I’ve been an archery fan ever since I saw that splitting an arrow scene when I was little. This video, with all the history and amazing feats, has made me an even bigger fan than before. Of course, the new knowledge will make seeing all the fake stuff harder to swallow… 😀

      • Hadn’t thought of that. Yes, I’m likely to think of this now every time I see someone using a bow. I hope it doesn’t spoil my games. Both of the ones I got for Christmas are full of archers and in the one I’m playing now, it’s my primary weapon.
