I’m sure Josh Thompson spent more than just one shot in creating this video.
Nevertheless it’s really amazing to see the end result.
I mean, it’s hard enough to hit one swinging target I wouldn’t even come up with the idea of trying to hit two with the same projectile.
Below you can see a still picture of the arrow as it’s about to hit the first bottle into the second.
As far as I can judge this video is not fake or rigged. Instead some nice longbow shooting skills and a fair amount of luck was involved for it to happen.
In Josh’s own words:
By far the hardest shot I’ve ever made with my longbow… timing is EVERYTHING!!
Yeah, we’re probably talking a second split into less than hundreds for it to happen.
YouTube: Instinctive archery trick shot – double swinging bottles.
Perfectionist – and Josh’s spotter if he had one – will say that Josh was about half an inch to the right in both bottles…so there’s room for improvement. I’m pretty impressed with both hits, they are very small targets.
