Ky Ferneaux

September 27th, 2019

This week Al Kidner sits down with Ky Furneaux after a recent late season hunt in QLD, in pursuit of Red Deer with Trad Bows in hand.

Ky sure has packed a hell of a lot of life in a short time. From breaking her back at 19, being told she would be lucky to walk again, starting out in the stunt woman business and being a part of Hollywood’s high end films. To being on Naked and Afraid, walking across the Sierra Nevadas in the US for 100km with only a pocket knife and learning to shoot a recurve.

Ky is a firm believer of making life an adventure, as it’s going to try it’s best to kill us anyway.

Check out Ky’s adventures online at www.kyfurneaux.com or follow her @kyfurneaux on Instagram

Nocturnal Archer - Andy Donald

August 23rd, 2019

On this weeks episode, Alan Kidner sits down with Andy Donald following the Hunt Expo in Melbourne back in May. 

.

Being legally blind, very few would think Archery would a be sport to pursue, but Andy has made it part of his life, more so than most. 

.

Andy quotes “To say a lot with very little. This is often the creative goal of musicians, visual artists, dancers, actors, martial artists and ... archers.  It’s not the only way it can be done but it speaks to me and that’s why I love traditional archery. The longbow is a beautiful example of a simple idea with tremendous potential and even though this Montana longbow is a 20th century design made with 21st century technology, the basic shape and concept hasn’t changed in thousands of years. There’s something uniquely satisfying about hitting your mark with a simple stick and sting longbow” 

.

 

This conversation is intriguing as Andy takes us through his archery journey.
