Over the last two weeks, we’ve brought you parts 1 and 2 of the ins and outs of archery, with Hypable’s Jessica Chapman. Today, hot on the heels of the big movie premiere, Jessica shows us the final part of her series: how to stand and shoot as seen and read about in The Hunger Games series.

In this video, Jessica shows the proper stance and technique to shoot a recurve bow – the same type of bow used by Katniss in The Hunger Games.


If you missed the previous parts, you can check them out below! Special thanks to Jessica O’Neal for taking the time to make these awesome videos, exclusively for fans of The Hunger Games!

      No problem! It was a ton of fun to make and I’m just glad someone actually enjoyed it. ;)

         Shame you make it look so easy! How long did it take for you to learn how to shoot?

    I wish you would have made this video before people started making Hunger Games parodies. SOOO many of the ‘Katnisses’ I’ve seen hold their bow like it’s a coat hanger or something. You could have taught them the true potential for an archer’s bad-assery. haha

    these were great to watch! 
    can you make one showing how you aim well? (thats the one thing i can’t do, i tend to hit trees, not the targets I’m aiming to hit XD)

      I would if I knew how I did it, lol. There are a lot of instructional videos by much wiser people than me who are actual experts that might be able to help. I’m glad you enjoyed these videos, though! Thanks for watching them.
