      My game camera I was playing with (new and date not set correctly obviously since this happened today)took this pic. Pure luck on timing to see the string doing it’s thing after the shot.

      Not that hot either, the camera is mounted on our clothesline pole in the direct sun so hotter than me thank goodness.

      Anyway, that is a fast flite string and homemade wool silencers.

      Lucky timing indeed,Ralph. Sort of like the archer’s paradox scene in “Brave.”

      What strikes me about this picture is the curvature of the arrows in your bow quiver! Do the arrows in our bow quivers always endure this treatment?! Sometimes when I take a picture straight objects appear to bend around the center of the image, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in your picture. Nothing else in the image seems bent to that extreme…

      Easton made a slow motion video many years ago of mostly compound setups being shot. It was very enlightening to watch how the arrow contorted as it left the bow. But equally enlightening to watch how the bow and everything on it squirmed around.

      I think they still sell it on their website. It’s the best study of the shot that I have seen. Unbelievable to watch what you think of as stiff metal turn to spaghetti.

      I am sure those arrows in bow quivers dance like crazy.

      Cool shot R2. I was thinking the same about the arrows in the bow quiver. Amazing how much movement occurs without ever noticing in real time.
