In this year's apprentice excursion, we set off to OX-Bow Archery in Jagsthausen after gathering for a breakfast together. There we received basic instructions into the art of instinctive shooting with bow and arrow. After dividing into groups, we started a course through the nearby forest where we could practice our skills by 'shooting' a variety of rubber animals, from small squirrels to large bison. All in all, it was an unforgettable day and a great experience that will be remembered by all apprentices for a long time.
