Anyone who”s watched “Game of Thrones” knows that Ygritte is really good with a bow. Specifically a recurve bow that she uses to take down enemies and smallfolk alike. But just how strong is this wilding archer? Youtuber LindyBeige took a break from their medieval warfare and technology videos to put Ygritte”s draw strength into humorous perspective.

Some statistics to go along with the humor!

In order to effectively use a recurve bow to hunt big game like bears (and people), you need draw weight of 55 lbs. or more. That”s no small feat for anyone, much less a tiny redhead. She must have some wicked bone spurs!
