Feeling proud of yourself for getting to work on time this morning? You won’t be as impressed with your accomplishment when you watch Paralympic archer Matt Stutzman, born without arms, nail a bullseye using his legs and feet.
Homemade sausage is so good and so cheap to make that you’ll never buy it from a store again. Here’s my take on a super healthy hot Italian.
Want to have a warmer winter? Now’s the time to save on down jackets and learn about cold weather sleeping bags. PSE just released the lightest compound bow ever and new watches from Suunto bring effective satellite navigation to your wrist. This is What’s New Outside.
The fastest, most powerful, most accurate bows ever made are modern compound designs. What advantages do they have over traditional bows of yore and how do you shoot one?
I’m a hunter. Not because I hate animals or nature, but because I love them. Two weeks ago, I flew to Washington to shoot a bear with a bow, that was a couple weeks after the whole #CecilTheLion business. And hunting was different, but maybe not for the reasons you’re thinking.
Want to do the stuff you read about us doing? There's a practical approach to learning any new sport, one which breaks down the barriers, reduces risk and speeds the learning curve. It's what we do, and it should work for you too.
This video is nearly six minutes long. I understand that asking you, dear reader, to watch a six-minute video of some dude doing archery tricks in his garage and the woods by his house is a tall order, but you need to do this. You need to watch Lars Andersen, master of ancient and long-forgotten bow skills, do his…
He usually took a low profile, but were Robin Hood more into networking he would have surely taken inspiration from this clever bow-and-arrow-transforming business card that design studio Filter created for an Australian video production company.
Africa's last full-time hunter-gatherers live in Tanzania. Gareth Wishart spent a month living with them. This tale is drawn from that experience. — Ed.
You don't see a lot of first person shooter games that opt for a bow and arrow in lieu of a machine gun, but that's probably because no one has created a bow interface as authentic as what Masasuke Yasumoto at the Tokyo University of Technology has developed.
Securing at least an honorable mention for the most over-the-top smartphone accessory, the BowBlade promises to turn aspiring iOS and Android archers into modern day Robin Hoods (or, sigh, Katniss Everdeens) who are never in risk of accidentally sending an arrow flying dangerously off-target.
Bows and arrows have evolved quite a bit since the Paleolithic era. But one thing hasn't changed in 12,000 years. This has never been a sport of sheer skill and power—its most elite competitors have always relied on the best gear of the age.
If pop culture is any indication, bows and arrows are the weapon of the future. Weird, right? But also delightful: The Hunger Games stars an arrow-slinging heroine. Hawkeye will defend the Earth using a bow and arrow in The Avengers. The summer Olympics will have awesome archery competitions to ogle. And the TV's…
In the trailer for The Avengers, we see Clint "Hawkeye" Barton, a.k.a. the world's greatest archer, hold his own alongside Captain America, Iron Man, and The Hulk.
If your name is ever called up in The Hunger Games reaping, you should consider training with Russian archer Iza Privezenceva. This speedy shooter could pump arrows into a muttation faster than you could say "Katniss Everdeen."
There aren't many things that look more calm and graceful than an arrow piercing the sky. But when you have the vantage point of a tiny camera mounted on that same arrow's back? Suddenly everything's a lot more... wobbly. [Buzzfeed]
This iCub humanoid robot learned how to hit a bullseye using a plastic bow and arrow after a mere eight attempts. Sure, it's only using suction cups, which provides some degree of cold comfort
Thomas Foo put on his green tights and feathered hat, grabbed a real bow, attached a Wiimote to it, and made it all work together thanks to the ingenious use of some rubber bands and a switch. He named it the Virtual Archery Bow and, not happy with the hack, he created a full game for it. It's called Trajectory, and…
