Stu started shooting a Flatbow during lockdown in 2020 at a target bag in his back garden. Later he started shooting targets switching between his AFB and Longbow.
In late 2022 after joining Deer Park he shot his first field course, lost 2 arrows but was hooked.
He entered his first 3D competition in May 2023 shooting his AFB and was quickly talked into booking onto other 3D and Field shoots. The next of which was the British National 3D Championships where he won a bronze medal. He finished the season in 3rd position in both the AFB Field and 3D rankings.
Stu enjoys travelling to different clubs to experience the challenge of the varying Field and 3D courses, from the hilly woods of Pentref to shooting inside a Fort at Purbrook.
He’s looking forward to becoming a little more proficient with his longbow, improving his form on the practice butts and trying to close the gap to the better field archers.
