  1. Great video guys, thanks ! This way of shooting allows you to line up the target and the arrow ( point and nock ) on the Same plane with your peripheral vision, while keeping the target in main sight !

  2. Obviously you guys have done way more research than me. Just thinking Ishi and the other California tribes you mentioned. Were people much smaller in stature. Mark looks like a much taller person. Wouldn't a longer draw and bow built for that. Give a more accurate example of how Ishi's and these other native American's form actually was?

    Great video thanx for sharing!!
