Shooting the Stickbow, 2nd Edition
by Anthony Camera
A big problem with books about shooting traditional equipment is no one volume seems to answer every question and problem a hunter may encounter when trying to learn to shoot a traditional bow without sights. So in manic bid to get better, you end up buying every book on the subject—trying a little of this and a little of that—and in the process go cat-kicking mad wondering why your bookshelves are bowing and you still can’t hit the broadside of a barn even if you were standing in it. Then one day a hefty package arrives and inside is a 390 page tome that promises to set you free—and it does.
Camera doesn’t waste space on Zen-master, “arch of the arrow” musings. If you want to know how to properly tune a bare bow—he tells you straight. You want to know why your arrows keep grouping high, low, or left, and right? Why does the bow string keep slapping your forearm and, more important, how do you fix it? The chapter on “Common Error and How to Correct Them” is sheer mana from The Gods. The volume and scope of information here makes you wonder if Camera does anything with his time outside of hunting and shooting—lucky him and also lucky for the rest of us that he also took a little time to write it all down.
