If you have a routine shot sequence, and a concrete aiming system, you can shoot a recurve or a longbow very accurately. And so, this video is for you. You guys that are out there that have always carried a compound bow into the woods or a crossbow, but always wanted to try a recurve or a longbow. This video is for you, those guys that have been struggling for three to five years shooting a recurve or a longbow instinctively, but are frustrated with your accuracy. This video is also for you guys that have or own a recurve or a longbow, and every spring you tell yourself "This is the year I'm going to carry a recurve or a longbow into the woods." But come August, you're not satisfied with your accuracy, and you fall back onto the compound, and the cycle continues. Well, this IS the year that you're going to carry your recurve into the woods. There are a hundred different ways to shoot a bow, and this is just one of them- a full aiming system that will help you shoot your recurve and longbow accurately. If you are completely satisfied with your shooting abilities with a recurve or a longbow, then this video is not for you. But if you want to be able to accurately shoot your bow within a short period of time, then this video is for you, and enjoy.

Sorry this isn't traditional archery, it's just modern archery, pure and simple, without all the silly rubbish they sell you. Compound bows and Olympic archery barely fall into this category, traditional archery does not. Traditional archery is when you use traditional built bows from specific historical examples, the arrows they used, and shooting styles they employed. Takedown recurves, metal knocking points, string walking, carbon shafts, plastic flights, and worst offender of them all: the Olympic draw, all mark this as modern archery. I appreciate what he's trying to accomplish here, but it comes across like someone who recently learned how to drive describing how they do it to someone who has been driving for years.

This is absolutely amazing. I shoot an Oneida Phoenix Lever bow and am going to try this out. I believe this will work due to the arms on the Oneida, compared to how other compound bows are set up.

I'm in the UK, been an archer for 18 yrs, learned more about this subject/passion of ours watching this vid, than I have going to archery clubs here in all that time. I am now a traditional shooter and independent of clubs in England (they only care about Olympic style target archery, I couldn't even shoot an English longbow at my last club). This is like a breath of fresh air, I will watch this vid until I can recite every word! So well explained in plain language and with practical demo's - I love it, I feel as if the scales have been taken from my eyes. Thank You, Thank You so much. God bless America!

When you talk about shooting a "600 grain arrow" are you talking about the total arrow weight (spine + tip)?
KINGOWOOD44 15 dias atrás
Total arrow weight, spine is not a weight but a stiffness measurement. Arrows are weighed by grains per inch of shaft, point weight, insert weight, wrap, fletching, nock all combined

This stuff works, but you have to already be a consistent shot to make it work. Any variation in anchor point or form and the arrow will miss by a lot, especially at long distance.

Thank you for all the knowledge and experience you have shared with this video. Maths may be the head (queen) of sciences, but it’s the physics (Neck) that turns it.. I am getting my first bow delivered tomorrow; to archery become my new hobby. Just the fulfilment of a boys dream who had run a stick with a string when he was a kid.

It’s a coincidence Bc I actually just got my first recurve today (Southwest archery spyder) it’s 55 lb for hunting and I’m not used to have to keep that draw weight at full draw. It’s def gonna be different but I think I’m gonna enjoy it more

Does the poundage of a takedown recurve affect the 40m Point On Target? If I start with a set of 30lb limbs and the goto 40lb will I need to reset the "fixed crawl nock" or does it just mean my arrow will reach the target with more speed and force?
R Dubya
R Dubya 27 dias atrás
Buck Rodgers was thinking the same think. It seems logical that a higher arrow speed makes a flatter trajectory. So does this increase the point on distance? I would think so, but not sure how much. Trial and error I guess. I watched this video a while back and I’m watching it again now before I get back into my archery.

If you’re going to individually tune each arrow, be prepared to throw away about half of the shafts you buy. Don’t believe me? Research Byron Ferguson and what he goes through. This guy splits aspirin tablets and life savers.

Yo! Just wanted to return to these comments. Been using quarantine time to get to grips with my longbow. This video has made so much difference to the way I shoot and how accurate I'm getting. I'm sold. Gonna keep at it and maybe leave my rifle at home next deer season.

What an awesome video. I randomly got a horse bow off amazon and after a week or two I decided to look for a video to help with form and whatnot. I got sucked right into this. I was shooting instinctive since someone told me that’s how you shoot a recurve. I was decent right off the bat, maybe being a die hard instinctive pool player helped. But I wasn’t as accurate as I wanted. Once I watched this I started aiming with the tip of the arrow, and instantly got tighter groups and more accuracy. And just like he said about when he went back to instinctive, before learning string walking, using the tip to aim definitely helps your instinctive shooting. It seems like a way to cheat the system of learning by shooting a million arrows. So I’ll aim with the tip for a few days, then fire off instinctive shots with deadly accuracy with my cheap arrows and bow. I haven’t gotten it all figured out yet but I’ve had a ton of fun over the past 2 months.

Excellent video, I have been bow shooting since long before it was popular to bow hunt back in the mid seventies. back then you barely ever saw a bowhunter in the woods and if you did they most likely carried a recurve bare bow. You should be very proud of yourself in putting together such a fine educational film. Good luck in your future endeavors.

It appears 199 animal activists have watched this video also, coz no real archer or newbie could give this video the thumbs down, 10/10 for clarity and insight. im just begining on my path in archery and youve just saved me 3 years + of figuring things out. greatly informative video, thanks so much from saving me from watching 100s of other vids. ill have to watch this one many times just to absorb all this info. i totally agree with matt ott on his opinion

The fixed crawl is just translating "the 100 meter zero" from rifle to bow. It's brilliant but not as complicated as he makes it sound.
Kevin Anthony

Closer than 25, if you nestle at the bottom of the animal like your circle shows, how does the fact that you're elevated and shooting down come into affect? Would you need to aim a little lower? Big fan BTW. Why can't I get your podcast on Spotify?
Kevin Anthony
Kevin Anthony Mês atrás
@The Push Productions thanks for the reply.
The Push Productions
Kevin Anthony yes, you do have to hold the tip lower in relation to the deer’s anatomy. But the “gap” you hold perpendicular to the arrow flight or line of sight is still 8”. But 8” on flat ground at a deer may be bottom of chest, but 8” from 20 feet up in a tree might be the elbow of the deer.

Great video! Question though. How do I go about setting the initial 40 yard point on? Is it just trial and error, as far as finding that nock placement? Or is there something more mathematical to get me started?
The Push Productions
Grace Ridge Life arrow length, arrow weight, poundage, and how high or low your anchor point is on your face will all play a part in determining you point on.

I agree Matt, I've just watched this through from start to finish and just could not stop watching. This is to my mind the best and most complete tutorial vid on BRvid for archery ( and I've watched quite a few dozen ). The clearest explanations on setting up your bow, on aiming and tuning all the aspects of your kit by far. Matt Zirnsak, you are a legend, I have learned more in this one film that all the others I've watched previously. Great stuff. Many thanks to you Matt and your team.

a true instinctive archer never looks at anything but the target. in fact a true instinctive shooter can make a shot in almost complete darkness. all you really need to do is visualize your arrow in the target. using the tip of your arrow is in effect using a site. this video makes instinctive shooting to complicated . and abuses the term instinctive. You don't need a site to throw a baseball , that's instinctive................

Phenomenal Video. One of the best I've seen in 40 years of reading/watching Archery tutorials. On question: "Why the white tape on the arrows just behind the tip?" I can't seem to find the explanation in the video. Thanks for all the great information.

Of ALL the traditional archery videos I have watched..this IS BY FAR THE BEST. I started with a Pearson offset wheel, then graduated to a Hoyt compound. For the last five years I have been trying to figure out the traditional bow, and how to properly shoot it. I'm only half way through this movie/ video, and I have learned 200% more than I have in five years...THANKS.

kg062007 3 meses atrás
Does the string walking method depend on the height of the target? So a target on the ground at 20m will have a different position on the string as a target 5m off the ground at 20m? So you basically have to string walk differently for different height targets? Someone please help

What he is doing with fixed craw in gun scope talk is he is zeroing the scope at 25 yards. People that shoot pellet rifles with scopes do this to keep the vitals as close to the crosshairs as possible over the longest distance possible . In archery its the same thing the arrow tip is the crosshairs . Every bow and arrow combination is going to be different. The best way to set your zero or the fixed craw location is to shoot at the longest hunting shot you know you are going to take example say 50 yards . See where your point of the arrow on target is hitting then shoot at the closest distance you know you are going to shoot . Once you know the distances from center target at both distances move your craw setting so your arrows are at the same distance above and below the center of the target at both close and far distances . Once you have the craw set so the distances are the same distance away from center of the target then you are at your zero setting .

How can marking your tab be considered illegal in a 3d shoot ? If they don't allow marks on a tab why couldn't you just put serving on your string to match the different distances ? Would putting serving on your string in different places on your string be considered illegal ? If you had serving on your bow you could feel the raised serving to know where you are at on the string even in dark light .

How have I missed this video? I found an older Fred Bear recurve in a trash can and was told, "take it, we're throwing it away." I brought it to an awesome boyer named Mark Harbison. He took his time, measured me, literally taught me to shoot at his shop and I was splitting arrows within a month. My niece and nephew were both taught by me on two separate occasions in 4-6 hour sessions. We are all HOOKED!

I've never seen an arrow rise up in an arc to a target when pointing an arrow below a target. What is the gravity like where you are?

You are right in that there is no actual rise. This is also confused in firearm ballistics. From the absolute get go, the arrow is falling due to gravity. The arc is due to the angle in which the arrow or bullet is actually being shot. Where the confusion lyes is the offset of your eye vs where the arrow/bullet launches from.

The arcs you show don''t seem to represent an arrow rising up to the target.

My son just started shooting NASP Archery and has been struggling with instinctive archery. I have been shooting with him after shooting open freestyle with a compound bow for nearly 35 years. I was struggling with instinctive shooting as well and was getting bummed because I wasn't much help to him. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video! After numerous videos and books I stumbled across this video. Hands down the best video on the subject I have ever saw!
