Bushido on an archer is good for 4 things.
1. lightning strike - basically an armor ignore every 5 shots.
2. confidence - good emergency healing if you have an extra second or two
3. You can use the yumi's double shot special (you can also use it with ninjitsu
4. Reduced mana costs. If your archery + bushido > 200 points, then you get a hefty reduction to your mana costs. If you can somehow fill in an extra weapon skill or ninjitsu, it reduces your mana costs even more.

That being said, the most simple effective archer template is still:
120 archery
120 tactics
120 healing
120 anatomy
120 resist spells
60 chivalry
60 meditation

Throwing in bushido throws that all out of whack, especially if you want to keep resist.

Another favorite is using hiding/stealth/ninjitsu for a stealth archer.

I usually run a template along these lines:

120 Archery
120 Anatomy
120 Tactics
120 Bushido
95 Healing
75 Chivalry
60 Focus

90 Healing is enough for not failing healing and having a good resurrection chance. Combine with enhanced bandages for GM Healing
Bushido is really handy for Lightning strike, Confidence, Evasion and also for honoring boss monsters. Killing bosses (Champs) fast isn't the worst ability when an enemy faction is pressing against the fields of your guildies.
