How to Make Wooden Bow and Arrows

Want to go back in history? You can try your hand at making a bow and arrow then. If hunting and archery are your favorite hobbies, make your very own bows and arrows and impress your friends and family.

Archery Equipment - Should You Make Your Own?

Archery has been practiced for a long time. Bows have been discovered from at least 2,500 years before Christ, so 4,500 years ago. It is also probable that archery goes back a couple of thousand years before that, but because most bows were made solely of wood, they have not lasted.

Targets Used For Archery

Archery is about striking a target with an arrow shot from a bow. The bow can either be an upright bow or a crossbow, although most people think of upright bows when they hear the term 'archery'. Within the sport or hobby of target archery, there are two kinds: target archery and field archery. The champion is the archer with the highest combined score of his arrows that struck the target.

Archery Tips For Beginners

There are two main things that an archer has to do well to guarantee the best chance of regularly hitting the target. The first is to hold the string stable at full draw until the archer is ready to shoot and secondly, releasing the string in the correct way every time. Most suggestions for beginners should help the novice to achieve these two goals.

Archery As a Hobby

We are all being advised to get out more frequently, so many people are looking for a motive for doing it. You could choose a spectator sport like football, but that is not really going to do your body much good, you ought to be looking for a participation sport.

Archery Targets

Archery can be classed as a sport or a hobby and it has its own class at the Olympic Games. Archers either hunt wild game animals or aim at targets or both. If you shoot at targets in a competition, it is the collective score of all your arrows that determines your rank in that competition. The nearer the centre of the target that the arrow strikes, the higher the tally.

Archery Bows - Some Aspects

Archery played a large part in human daily life for thousands of years from prehistoric times until about 1750, when the gun started to replace it for hunting and warfare very quickly. Societies all over Europe, north Africa, like Egypt, Persia (Iran), India, China and Japan remember their greatest archers. I am sure that other countries do too.

Bow Hunting - Some Aspects

Bow hunting or bowhunting is one of those sports that you either love or you hate - a bit like fox hunting in the United Kingdom. Town people hate it and anybody involved with it and country people see it essential to cull wild animals that could otherwise become a nuisance.

Tips For Archery Fishing

Archery fishing is also known as bow fishing and it is as old as the bow and arrow themselves. We in the West tend to think that only poorer tribesmen in Third World countries go bow fishing, but that is not quite true.

Archery Dealers

Do you have a hobby that you like to carry out out of doors or are you permanently glued to the seat in front of your computer? If you never get out, then that is a shame and you ought to take that common piece of advice and get out more often.
