The phrase 'on the money' meaning exactly right or dead center, can be traced back to a competition in Archery. In this competition, the coin would be laid on a target a certain distance away (perhaps a radial target as used in the modern Olympics, or even just the ground) and competitors would take turns trying to shoot their arrows closest to the coin, with the closest the winner. Hence, right on the money, hitting the coin, would be exactly correct as you could get no closer!
It means to cast (throw, toss, flick) a baited hook, or fly, out onto the water.
The elimination system at the Olympics is called the "Set System."
So first, the archers go and shoot a ranking round. The top archer is paired with the lowest, the second highest with the second lowest, etc. Then, they have the elimination rounds.
So, first the archers each shoot 3 arrows within the time frame. They score the three arrows and find out who has the highest sum of points. The winner of this match gets two match points. If they both tie, then they each get one match point.
This goes on until someone gets to 6 match points first.
If they both tie at 5 match points, then they have to have a one-arrow shoot-off.
During the shoot-off, the archer who hits closest to the center wins the tie and is declared the winner of the match.
After that they just move on like any elimination tournament and the winner of the finals wins the gold medal!
Anything can be killed with an arrow: Bears, deer, wolves, cougars, moose, elk, buffalo, bison, rabbits, game birds, humans... It is highly recommended to kill all animals mentioned except humans.
good question go to where ever you shop for your arrrows and they should have a chart that tell u what your arrow weight should be . yes it does your less accurate and you are not getting all of the speed you can out of it and it falls faster.
Rivers was given his nickname from then-Marquette assistant coach Rick Majerus. Rivers attended a summer basketball camp wearing "Dr. J" T-shirt. Majerus immediately called him "Doc" and the players at camp followed suit. The name stuck ever since.
(the answer was taken from "doc rivers" page on wikipedia)
Hi there , to make a bow you need to find a 5-6 ft peice of sappling wood these will be soft and slightly bendy , you need to cut notches in either end of the srick the besy way to do it is with a knife , you want to cut horizontly in about 1cm the vertically down , know cut diagonly joing the cuts a triangular shape should come off repeat this for either side and for either end . Know you need to cut some rope about 5.5ft for a 6ft bow and tie a loop in each end and place them in your knotches , this should make your bow bend slightly. If you don't have string you can use any fishing line over 50l/b , hold the bow and decide were your hand will be placed wrap it in string or carve it to your grasp shape whatever you prefer
glad I could help
There are usually 3 feathers or fletchings on an arrow. As few as 2 or as many as 4 can be used, but 3 is normal for modern arrows. The 3 feathers are positioned equally at 120 degrees from each other.
The different coloured feather is traditionally called the "cock feather" but in modern times the alternative name "index feather" can be used, depending on the audience.
At the back end of an arrow, there is a "nock" which can be a plastic "U" or just a groove in the back of the arrow which fits around the string of the bow to hold the arrow onto the string.
The index vane is attached to the arrow at right angles to this nock, so when the arrow is on the bow, the index feather is pointing away from the bow. The other two feathers will be able to pass the bow without obstruction.
The face. In medieval times the peasants would be called on to practice their archery in order to defend the castle should the need arise. The weapons master gave them a target which was painted to look like the faces of their enemies, thus earning it its name.
More then 40.
Field target archery is when your in a field and your a long distance away from the target and 3D archery is like doing archery inside.
An arrow makes a "whoosh" sound as it moves.
general space is the space that everyone shares
Crossbows come in different powers, and the crossbow bolts can have different tips, and they can hit in different places. A small bow, a blunt bolt and a hit in an arm or a leg is unlikely to kill. A big bow, a bladed bolt and a hit to the chest could kill. Small bow, blunt arrow, and a hit to the throat/head can kill.
There are a wide variety of quiver and arrow types. Most modern hunting quivers hold somewhere around five. Most medieval quivers were sized to hold between ten and fifteen, with an even dozen being the number most commonly alluded to in literature. Personally I have never seen one designed to be carried by a foot archer that would hold more than twenty. It would, of course, be possible to do so, but arrows tend to bulk up quickly, so the practicality is questionable.
If I understand you correctly, then you don't, as you pull back into full draw it will straighten out by itself. If not, then you could ask your coach or someone who would know how to fix it to replace it with a new one. Hope I helped! ;)
Derived from the history of archery (linked below) it seems that all people have, at some point in time, used a bow and arrow with few exceptions; ancient peoples in Australia and some in the pacific islands are not noted to have used the bow and arrow (although they did have another type of spear (arrow) that was thrown by a type of amplification (bow)).
depending on the condition if it in good condition a used one should be around a hundred dollars.
It is referred to as a "Boss", origins not know but could be because it sticks out?
The "Target Face" is what you put on the Boss for scoring, these are different sizes depending on what Round is being shot (Indoor & Outdoor). The biggest face is 122cm and the smallest 40cm (Target Archery).
The answer is 10
The answer depends upon the type of target being used.
Some targets will score the bullseye as 10 (Vegas 5-Dot), others as 5 (5-Spot).
It has become common place for clubs to count the inner most ring of the Vegas target as an "X" which is counted separately to break ties among archers with identical scores. So it is not unusual to hear archers call an "X-Ring" shot an 11.
long bow, short bow, cross bow... it depends what you are hunting
