I'd blazon this as "unblazonable", sorry. It's extremely difficult to
get both two arrows and a bow in a position that's blazonable (in one
group, that is).  

If an archery motif is what is desired, why not try pheons (arrow
heads)? It's far more period, and FAR less used in SCA armory than the
usual "two arrows and a bow" motif.
