I was looking at Mr. David Millers website and noticed he gives lessons. It's about a 4 hour drive for me and am seriously considering reaching out to him. I'm wondering if anyone has had lessons from him? I'm sure it's worth it, just curious if anyone has any experience.
Give Dave a call. He's great to talk with and can advise you regarding his classes better than anyone here. Happy 2022, buddy!
Wish I had taken some lessons or classes years ago. I’m afraid I’m so set in my ways now that I wouldn’t give them a real chance to work
Thanks for the reply's. I'm not necessarily looking for anything specific other than a critical eye. I've never shot in front of a "professional" coach. I figured he's only about 4 hours away so I'd have to pay for the 8 hours and a hotel nights stay. I'll try reaching out to him and maybe set something up for when the weathers warmer. If I go I'll be sure and take some pictures and report back!
David’s website explains the lessons. Basically depending on your skill level he tailors the shooting instructions to the individual. He offers a price for local students by the hour and an 8 hour block for out of town students. He states he was taught by both John Schulz and Byron Furgeson and says the two styles complement each other. I did not take the time to visit Mr. Schulz but plan to make the time to get some instruction from David Miller. The stories alone and a critical eye of the Hill style of shooting would be worth the drive imo
Although David has been making bows for years, he trained under John Schulz, and may have taken lessons too, you should ask him.
I would do it if you shoot Hill style. on his web site it say $20 an hour so if ya shoot a few hours you can see how you like it. No matter how good you are there is nothing wrong with a coach critiquing you. I have never heard of anybody taking his course or even took a lesson. If ya do it let us know what ya think.
I don’t know anyone who took the class. If the class is reasonably priced it may very well be worth it. Is there something you want to work on in your shooting sequence?
