Come to full Draw and Shoot an arrow straight up! I have wanted to so many times, I never will because it is way dangerous and not to mention, a waste of money. Just wondering if anyone has ever wanted to do this...
I have done it Not absolutely 90 degrees straight up but enough that the arrow landed within 50 yards. Would I recommend it no, was it cool yeah, would I do it again...well no cause I already did it:darkbeer:
used to do it all the time when i was a kid. was fun but would not recomend it. at the time was only shooting a 25 pound bow. had a genueiss freind claim he could catch a arrow out of the same bow that did not end well. its amazing we lived this long!
many times as a kid and a few as an adult ..the most memorable was while we were building a press box at a high school football field,,,lunch time,,50 x100 field,,,shot straight up or at least we thought,,,went out of sight and we scrambled under the bleachers....arrow came down right in the roof of a small building....summer time and nobody around...i don't recommend doing that,,it gets scary...and yes we fixed the roof
did it yesterday lol, I gave in to the urge, put on a homemade lighted nock, and let her fly straight up as I could, I marked where I was standing with a rock and the arrow landed 20 yds away from it ( I ran)...thing had over 7 seconds before it hit the ground...would I do it again? no, the arrow broke when it pummeled into the ground, there goes 6$ (cheap arrow)..
My son was shooting with a guy from work. The guy says "Look at this." and shoots straight up, the arrow sticking in the ground 12"-14" from this guy's 4yr. old son that was playing in the yard. I call "DOUBLE DUMBASS" to this and any other irresponsible act concerning potentially dangerous equipment.
