    I have no idea how this measures against normal warbow shoots. I'm not a member of a club but heard somewhere that 144 arrows is the norm. Absolutely knackered after!

    But they take much longer to shoot 144 arrow. Typically 3-6 hours depending on the 'formality' of the shoot.

    I'd estimate much lower numbers than that Blakey. If you consider a good bow will send an arrow 300yards, A horse at a strong canter will cover 300 yards in about 35 seconds.
