James Jean’s Most Difficult Archery Trick Shot

I think the greatest archery trick shooter on the planet is James Jean. Click here to see an article I wrote previously titled “Must-See Trick Shots From Traditional Archer James Jean.” I’ve shot traditional equipment a substantial amount in my 40-year bowhunting career, and even though I consider myself a decent instinctive shooter, no matter how many times I watch James on video, I’m left shaking my head and asking “How?”

The video below details James Jean’s most difficult archery trick shot — in his opinion. Specifically, he says that tossing a ring (aka wedding ring) into the air and then shooting an arrow through the ring’s small opening is his toughest trick shot to date. Yes, he’s shot smaller flying/moving objects such as aspirins and water droplets, but what makes this trick so difficult is he must toss the ring into the air in a manner where it falls with the opening toward him. In other words, simply hitting the ring isn’t a tremendous challenge for James; the trick is threading the needle into the ring’s opening.

FYI: James is using a Hoyt recurve, specifically a Satori riser with Carbon Velos limbs.
