Nomad= Hunting, for the heavy draw weights I use a draw style similar to the Hadza Bow hunters of Tanzania, they're bows are about 100# average, shoot 4ft arrows, and take game from starlings, to Giraffe.
Rusty= I never tried gap shooting before nor did I hear about it until a couple days ago, guess it isn't all that necessary since I do decently with instinctive, now I just need tighter groups.
The reason I use a monster of a bow is the versatility of the poundage's. Then maybe just cause it's fun to shoot a real heavy bow, not to mention the amount pass through with such poundage. Maybe for flight shooting as well. Granted though it's very unnecessary.
Here's some pictures of some Hadza Hunters-
The pictures are messy, but I wanted to point out the shear amount of arrows in the bow hand of the far right hunter in the fourth picture. They carry the arrows like that when traveling, the rest are kept in the draw hand, and tucked in-between the legs. During draw they bend the body forward into the bow, I've tried this and I noticed it locks up your joints for little movement, so I manage to keep a steady aim, on a target, I guess.
