The event for the whole family on Landgoed Velder in Liempde. A beautiful outdoor event in the woods of the Groene Woud.
On 24, 25 and 26 September 2021, it was finally possible again: for three days, under a bright sunshine, you could enjoy everything that has to do with hunting and the outdoors.
The Vlaamse Boogjacht Vereniging (VBV; Flemish Bowhunting Association FBA vzw) could not be absent. Although bowhunting is not yet permitted in the Netherlands, interest in this exceptional method of game management is also growing. We noticed this by the growing number of interested people and the many initiations we were able to give there.
The initiation consisted of learning to shoot with a compound hunting bow. This is an ultra-modern and very accurate bow that was specially developed for hunting. First, we determine which is the dominant eye of the aspiring bow hunter. This is because, as with the shotgun, the eye dominance plays an important role in the choice of a right or left-handed hunting bow. A short training, and ten minutes later you could already shoot successfully at the various 3D targets (life-sized rubber animals) that had been set out. We took our time and of course provided a safe environment.
