But I don't fully trust the art on this..Though it's possible that it was down to individual preference. I have shot longbow with the arrow on the other side of the bow, but I like tilting the top limb to the right (I'm right handed), so keeping it on the left of the bow suits me as it makes a natural arrow-rest.
A tin can at 70m is pretty impressive without sights!
Well, if it weren't a total fluke anyway! But, for me it's a bit difficult to shoot at distances over 40m or so without angling the bow up because California where I live is extremely mountainous. So at 70m, the target is about 5-6ft higher than the firing position.
