Episode 34 - Don‘t Shoot The Worm

1Dec

I'm back with Episode 34. We've had a bit of a crazy weekend with Storm Arwen giving us high winds and our first snowfall of the coming winter. I broke out the Mandarin Duck Black Hunter trad bow to shoot the Racoon Shoot at Paget and finally got a sight tape sorted for the Turkey Shoot at Liberty Archers. Listen in to find out how I got on.

Episode 33 - My First Yoga Class, Cheap Vs Expensive Arrow Shaft Comparison & New Fletching Toys On The Way

29Oct

In this latest episode I have attended my first yoga class with Say Yes To Yoga and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do a quick comparison between Skylon Instec, Easton Axis and Victory RIP TKO arrow shafts which range in price from £48 per dozen to £144 per dozen and I've got an addition to my Bohning Helix Tower fletching jig on its way direct from Bohning in Lake City, Michigan.

Episode 32 - Postponements, Cancellations & Falling Off The Wagon

3Oct

Welcome back. After an unintended sabbatical of around 4 months I'm back. In this new episode I discuss where I've been and what's been happening, including the postponement of 2 trips abroad and the cancellation of my favourite 3D shoot of the year. I look at the stalling of my fitness journey and a rediscovered energy and focus in my shooting practice. I also recount freeing a trapped deer in the middle of a Norfolk village early on a Sunday morning.

Episode 31 - Admitting You’re Not One Of The Cool Kids

27May

Welcome back to the podcast and Episode 31. In this episode I have to face the fact that I'm not one of the cool kids and that I'm simply not consistent enough with a handheld release so I'm back to the old wrist rocket. I have some new budget arrow shafts on the way for shooting 3D and I have a new, very not budget friendly arrow rest on the Kuma. I discover the lengths that Ryan at The Archers Nest goes to in order to supply wooden arrow shooters with the most consistent shafts that he can.

26Apr

Welcome back to Episode 30 where I have a conversation with Chelsea and Mark Brownridge. Regular listeners will have heard me talk about Chelsea in earlier episodes in relation to her being a yogini. We talk about everything from yoga to coffee, beer to chasing dreams and medieval re-enactment (including the venerable codpiece) to Mark's digestive system and how it responds to copious amounts of German meat. Links to the various subjects that we talked about are listed below.
