Instinctive archery

Post by luisin » Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:17 pm

Hello forum!

Is there anyone doing instinctive archery around Helsinki?
I know there are some archery clubs, but they are usually into competitive/olympic archery, and it would be nice to find someone doing instinctive/intuitive...
As the weather is starting to get nice, I was wondering where I could meet some people to play "Robin Hood" in the woods ;)

Cheers!
Luis

How does it work? Is it anything like the blind (or blindfolded) biathlon?
As he persisted, I was obliged to tootle him gently at first and then, seeing no improvement, to trumpet him vigorously with my horn.

Haha, not really.

If you want a wikipedia definition:
"Instinctive shooting is a style of shooting that includes the barebow aiming method that relies heavily upon the subconscious mind, proprioception, and motor/muscle memory to make aiming adjustments; the term used to refer to a general category of archers who did not use a mechanical or fixed sight."

... And it's quite fun ;)
