Moving to barebow on one occasion :)

Our club is taking a trip to the Hyde Park Winter wonderland (Christmas fair/fare/fayre, whatever the word is)

Apparently they have a barebow target every year where you have to shoot 4 small balloons with 6 arrows from 4 meters.

Any tips since I've never shot barebow only Olympic recurve? Haha. Should be fun.

Video for reference https://youtu.be/x_W2acAdlGQ

The video...

That's not very safe!!!

Aim with arrow tip. Use a high anchor (cheek bone) to try to get your eye at the same level as the arrow.

Practice before you leave.

Ya, thought the guy running the range was standing way too close. But I don't know what the heads on those arrows are like and I doubt there is much poundage in the bows.
