Instructional Archery Babe Videos

As colossal wastes of time, energy and resources go, Youtube ranks right up there with Egyptian pyramids, the stone heads of Easter Island, and Twitter. But every now and then you stumble across something that is intriguing, instructive and well, kinda sexy. Like this, and this:

I must confess that I didn't find these clips myself. A while back my editor sent me a link to them and said "see if you can find out who they are and why they're shooting half-nekked." Now you know what the F&S editors do every day.
But not a bad assignment, really, although I was a little confused by the lack of sound and the emphasis on form in many of the clips. I mean, if you're gonna show off your bikini-worthy bodies then at least tart it up a bit, right? Maybe take a cue from this girl:

So I forced myself to watch all the other Youtube clips of these two attractive archers, took a few notes on what I could glean from the clips and began Googling. I quickly discovered the clips were in fact not soft-core exhibitionism, but a video training journal. And the two comely young women? World-class tournament archers, both of them. The reason for the skimpy clothing? To show as much muscle movement as possible during the process of drawing and shooting the bow, which helps improve form, and to help with physiotherapy. And if they look damn good doing it? Well, that's just a side benefit. Why not hire these gals as booth babes?

Kidding aside, if you're a bowhunter watch the rest of the clips and you might pick up an idea or two to improve your shooting. I was so inspired that I grabbed my bow and video camera, squeezed into my Spongebob Squarepants Speedo and started filming myself in the back yard as my neighbors - hands clawing at their eyes - ran screaming for their back door. As soon as my wife can post bond and get me out of here I'll have the clips up on Youtube for you. -- Chad Love
