Archer's reference guide by Murray Elliot
Lots of questions always come up here from those new to the sport. Many of us are more than happy to assist, but probably the most comprehensive source of information for those just getting started can be found in Murray Elliot's excellent reference guide, found here:
I probably had a copy of this laying around my house for 2-3 years when I was getting started. I highly recommend it to every recurve archer and every JOAD coach to have on hand.

What defines you as an archer isn’t how many arrows you’ve shot or what your highest score was.
What defines you as an archer is the decision to pick up your bow, get out of the house and shoot.

Yes, it is an excellent information source. I have printed it out for my club and made booklets for beginners many times.

If you really look closely at this guide, you can see that countless hours went into it. And it's available for free to us. I have no financial interest in this and I've never met Murray Elliot, but please consider a donation on his website if you're downloading that document. I'm sure he would want you to have a copy either way, but man, that was a lot of work putting that all together!

One of the nicer references that I was pointed towards. It's cool to see it posted again!

Perhaps the mod's could make this a sticky for those who will need it?

If you carry any weight with the moderators, have them make Tony's beginner equipment list a sticky as well. It is a nice quick reference for new shooters.

ha, ha, ha. If anything, my suggestion might KEEP it from becoming one!

Murray, I'm sorry I missed you. I just don't have the time and money to travel around and shoot arrows as much as I would like. So I have to just live vicariously through those of you that do most of the time.
Thanks again for your hard work.
