Byron Ferguson Ultimate Archer

This guy shoots moving objects out of the air with a longbow.

His wife must trust him because she is down range throwing the objects

6:20 he starts shooting tennis balls.

9:30 he shoots an aspirin.

Byron Nelson is a regular on "Impossible Shots". When you realize the he doesn't have any sights, red dots or other aids he is truly impressive.

I shoot longbow and have his book. He is pretty awesome. He is just like Jerry Mickulek, one of those very rare people with an incredible natural ability.

Awww. Just the second best archer from Alabama.

Byron Ferguson follows in the footsteps of Howard Hill.

Byron is a great shot and a really nice guy.

But Howard Hill was THE man with a longbow. Not only did Howard do all the trick shooting that Byron did but he also was an honest to goodness world champion target shot and a highly accomplished big game shot as well.

I love shooting traditional bows and especially love Hill style longbows. It takes practice but its not hard. It takes about as much skill as throwing a baseball well if you think about it. Not that throwing a baseball accurately is easy. But if you practice enough you can do it--and nobody puts sights on a baseball.

There are some good vids of Howard on Youtube.

Heck of a shot with a longbow, that's for sure!!!!!




Saw him on "Impossible Shots", doing a 100 yard shot, and hit the CAMERA, straight through the lens!!!!!!!


ETA: The camera that was shot 'through the lens' was (of course) mounted on a tripod, and remotely operated!!
