Yeah, I figured you were just setting up the pose for the photo, not actually practicing archery ... well, at least I came to that conclusion after looking closely at the bow.  :-P

 

My middle school had all sorts of weird classes, as a magnet school.  In 7th and 8th grade alone, I took multiple levels of archery and fencing, mechanical drafting, photography, wood working, electronics, small engines, PASCAL (a programming language) ...

It was an interesting school.

Oh that's cool .. i would've loved an archery class!

This is just me and a friend messing around.

Heh, no worries.  Most people learned how these things work by seeing them in cartoons and such.  Looney Tunes wasn't always technically accurate in their representation of mechanics.  I actually took several archery classes, so I've got a bit more formal instruction on the subject.

I know I know >< ... my brother told me I had it wrong when he saw this pic too haha.

Honestly I found the bow in the rafters of our old farmhouse basement and I'm pretty sure no one else knew it was there. I haven't gotten the chance to play with this one in a while either, but if everyone else keeps noticing my error I'll have to just so i can take proper pics!

Oooooooh.  It's been years since I've picked up a bow.

 

Except ... umm, it looks like you've got it strung backward.  It looks like a re-curve bow, but it's not bent like a re-curve.
