Welcome back to the podcast with Episode 43. In this episode I look back at the Liberty Archers weekend, a day spent with Alex at Hybrid Archery, a British International Bowhunters  meet and the Briar Rose open shoot.

I finally got the Skylon Empros made up and got to fling some fat shafts, Huge thanks to Tim Connor for his permission to use his monologue from a video that he posted on the Elkshape YouTube channel.
