What do Susan Pevensie from Chronicles of Narnia, Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games, and Ygritte from Game of Thrones all have in common? They’re all fierce females who can rock a bow and arrow.
I discovered recently that — with a bit of instruction and practice — I can kick ass and hit bullseyes too.
I had a bit of experience shooting from my youth, but it had been many, many years since I’d picked up a bow.
Since I was a little rusty, I benefitted from some expert instruction from the raddest owner/operator, Jay. Seriously, after overshooting the target on my own, it just took some minor correction from Jay and I hit the bullseye on the next shot. She lines the targets with balloons for some extra satisfaction as well!
As an added bonus, Jay encourages moving around to play with different targets. Can I just point out how awesome some of these are? Um yes that is a scary zombie man and YES THAT IS A DINOSAUR.
If you’re looking to empower your inner baddass bow-person, then I highly recommend making the trek out to Highland Bow & Arrow.
Jay’s got something for everyone, including lessons for your little ones (or yourself), or just some straight up shooting practice.
What are you waiting for? Do it. #ShootArrows!
