Sample text

Bowmen launch arrows from powerful bows with the sole purpose of shooting farther than anyone else. Some of the bows are so powerful, they feature stirrups for the feet so that, from a sitting position, the archer can brace the bow with his legs and draw with both arms. The man who all but defined modern flight shooting was Harry Drake, born in 1915. Drake not only competed, he built the winning bows. In 1947, a Drake bow became the first to launch a shaft over 600 yards (it landed 603 yards away).

He even pardoned poachers who would wield bows in defense of the realm; this was no small concession, as the common penalty for poaching was prompt hanging with the offender’s own bowstring. Meanwhile, the King required much of his subjects to actually supply the army. For a royal expedition in 1359, “The Tower” exacted 20,000 bows, 50,000 bowstrings, and 850,000 arrows from the counties. No battle more clearly showed the longbow’s lethality than that waged near the French village of Crecy-en-Ponthieu, August 26, 1346.

A GPS unit measured the range at 2,815 meters, or 3,079 yards. The shooter is unknown, because two fellow snipers fired at the Taliban commander simultaneously. One bullet struck. Having fired at targets a lasered mile away — a mere 1,760 yards off — I am awed by this shot. It is, of course, exceedingly difficult to land a bullet in a target, one perhaps 18 inches wide, at even a mile. You can barely afford a minute-of-angle error; make that half a minute at 3,000 yards. No matter how sleek or fast your bullet, its parabolic arc at such range is so steep, you must know the range precisely.
