Byron Ferguson travels the world doing live exhibition. I should note, that Byron doesn't call himself the "Best" archer, or the "Most Amazing" archer or anything like that. These are my words, because to me, he really is the most amazing archer.
He's a cool dude with the right balance of humility and confidence, and I have an incredible amount of respect for him as a person. I'm under no obligation to recommend that you hire him for your live event... but I do. Book him through his wife Wanda here under "Exhibition Shooting".

A huge thank you to Alexander for shooting his compound bow for the high speed, as well as helping me rig up the Harry's Razor pop up target.

Circle Packing:

Circle Packing Calculator:

Note: I realize that circle packing isn't a perfect way to quantify this. It was a new geometric concept to me that I had never used and really liked the idea of exploring it. It doesn't take into account an edge hit or grazing shot, for example... but all in all I feel like it's a great way to get a quick feel for the difficulty of hitting a target.

Thank you to Matthew Feickert who coded the equation in LaTeX for the video.


Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!
