Thanks for the vote. Ygritte and Anguy are probably the best and most skilled, although quite a few GoT characters excell with a bow. Most fearsome might be another matter, Dongo, Joffrey and Ramsay may not be the best, but their reputation for ruthlessness makes putting any weapon in their hands something that should instill fear in others.

You know, the problem with choosing Joffery, etc. is, it really doesn't take much skill to shoot a crossbow, just a bit of strength.

That gilded cross-bow has a special crank design, so it doesn't even require that much strength. I would probably group him near the bottom but above Robin Arryn (abysmal), in terms of skill. I count as many misses as hits for him, the one time we saw his handi-work: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0944947/mediaviewer/rm2386832896. That said, considering he is psychotic, I think he ranks high on the fearsome scale, as Ros found out.

Like I said, I didn’t watch the show. But from your conversations, I think you need to consider the differences between a longbow and a crossbow. The crossbow was less accurate but had greater force and longer ranger. It was sometimes but not all the times the slower weapon to load and ready. The long bow was quicker but had less power and range. The crossbow is by far the deadlier weapon and therefore, you should consider who is holding one.

Thanks you make a  fair point, but I think those poll takers familiar with the differences will factor that into their decision. While others will use each archer's reputation and feats as the determining factor. However, I suspect most show followers will focus on those characters that had a particular memorable scenes that demonstrated their extreme ruthlessness that the bow & arrow was merely an instrument. The question is purposely phrased so each poll taker can decide on their own what makes the character fearsome with a bow. Other than "Arrow", I can't think of another show that has as many bow and arrow memorable scenes. As an illustration, I am not even sure this would make top five.

In honor of NATIONAL ARCHERY DAY, the second Saturday in May May 4th in 2019 and the final season of "Game of Thrones": Good Archery and Games of Thrones poll for the first week in May 2019.
I
Also, a good poll for die-hard "Game of Thrones" fans, as well as, archery aficionados; other than on the series, Arrow (TV Series 2012– ) I can't think of a show were the topic would generate a more heated debate. The question itself, is open to question as to what makes a great archer: speed, accuracy, distance, hitting moving objects or stationary ones, etc or what defines ones "fearsomeness". The series has had a number of demonstrations of skill, as well as, discussions on the merits of each archers skill.

Urb,

It's somewhat ironic / fitting that Star Wars Day (May the Forth be with you) and National Archery Day occur on the same date.

I think I messed up somehow, it is May 11th not May 4th as it falls on the second Saturday in May each year I like how director Neil Marshall slipped in a cameo as a Nights Watch archer, I included it as an Easter Egg in the poll.

Dog SoldiersThe DescentDoomsdayCenturionDavid Harbour in Hellboy 2019

Anyways, that works out better for Star Wars Day. It would be nice to see the same support for National Game Of Thrones Day next April. It is celebrated about/on the "Game of Thrones" Winter Is Coming premiere anniversary of 17 April. 2011. It has varied each year in the past to coincide with each season's premiere episode usually on a April Sunday.

Typo in #19: Margaery Baratheon

Also, the image you have for Rickon is actually Bran, though I don't recall seeing Rickon with a bow and arrow, so maybe he doesn't belong in the list?

Thanks, Corrected  #19: Margaery Baratheon


Rickon Stark w/Bow Alternate Image

Yes, you are correct in the scene Bran and Rickon are being tutored in marksmanship by their older brothers.  Arya interrupts by taking a shot, but Rickon never gets a turn on-screen to take a shot. This image was mistagged sometime ago, as Rickon, which was the original source of confusion. I have removed Rickon as an option.

Nice catch, obviously a red herring for show watchers.

I am curious to see how many votes he gets. I would say he is fearsome, in a different respect, as he might shoot himself in the foot or have some type of friendly fire incident with his own troops.
