I'm not sure why this even popped in to my mind lol. At any rate, I was just sitting here thinking and I remembered a comment in a thread a WHILE back from a member on here who's name I'll leave out.

At any rate, this person claimed he practiced in all the positions that he might find himself in during a hunting situation, BUT...... he went on to say he was PROFICIENT at shooting a bow while laying on his belly lol.


Now, I have imagined every possible angle of the body and bow, but i can't see this being anything other than some special effect in a Hollywood movie lol.

Anyone else here ever even attempt anything this bizarre? :confused:

Laying on your belly? How would you even anchor? I guess with a recurve or longbow one could do it...but a compound?:confused:
I will say I probably couldn't hit a 10 yard target on my belly, but people never cease to amaze me...especially those older fellas that shoot traditional.

It certainly wouldn't be my first choice of positions but definitely possible with the right equipment (even a compound), you guys that have never shot off the shelf or from your knuckle without sights clearly underestimate what can be done.

I thought thats why they made the whisker buiscuit:tongue:
Considering how many here shoot 1/2" groups at 40yrds and 3" groups at 85yrds Im SURE its happening, though the groups are probably a tiny bit bigger.
