An archer has to know his or her limitations. 

There is no room for showing off where you might really get hurt.

This archer decides to draw more bow than he can handle and it ends badly.

Facebook page Deer Blinds & Fishing Lines shared a video that should be a caution to all archers.

This young fellow obviously has a heavy draw bow that is too much for him. He tries and tries with all his might to pull back the powerful bow. He finally locks back in shooting position and is about to release the arrow. Well instead of the arrow releasing the bow itself lunges backwards and slams into him.

While I’m sure his so called friends had a good laugh at his expense but injury is no laughing matter. Only draw what you can safely handle.
