Once all the lads have got the hang of things you'll be shooting in a competition. It's up to you whether you decide to shoot individually or mix things up by pairing the lads or splitting them into teams. It's certainly help increase the competitive edge and get the banter going between the lads. Although do try to keep the banter friendly, after all, you're all holding ancient weaponry that in the right hands was able to pierce plate armour and make a right bolognese of the knight inside.
- Henry the VIII was one of many monarchs to insist all young Englishmen were required, by law, to practise archery every week to help defend England from invasion.
- Henry took things one step further though by banning football, which had become popular with young men skipping archery in order to play in local matches.
- However, it's a lesser known fact that Henry the VIII was the first man to own a pair of purpose made football boots.
Please note; Stags who are clearly under the influence of alcohol will not be permitted to shoot for safety reasons.
