We are back in action! After a little break to take care of life, the Bare 5 blog and some ninja warrior training, it’s time to continue the bowed arts with another upper division/advanced undergraduate course. Once again this level and above is for those looking to explore the deeper realm of bow hunting training. Like mastering any other endeavor, mastering the mind is a prerequisite for mastering the bowed arts. BHT 301 began developing the mental side of bow hunting training and now we continue that by adding some yoga like exercise in BHT 302.
