BOW AND ARROWóDISTANCE CARRIED
BOW AND ARROWóDISTANCE CARRIEDóWith what accuracy could they shoot an arrow, and when did they cease to be used as a weapon?
A hundred yards, more or less, was long range. The Indians hunted close. The English long bow men shot hundreds of yardsóup to 900ówith great accuracy, but the Indians never rivaled them. Indians still use the bow and youngsters use them, but the little rifles are driving out the art.
