Archery is a sport you can take up at any age, and its great fun. There are sevral different types of archery, so you can pick the one which appeals to you the most. If you are a serious and thoughtful type of person then you will probably prefer Target Archery, where you shoot tat the target of coloured rings with modern eqipment and a sight on your bow. You try to get every one of your 3 arrows into the 10 " centre, from distances ranaging from 20 yards for the beginners to to 100 yards for the experts. It takes a lot of practtice and dedication, but it can be done !!
Shooting a barebow is a good start for novices in the sport of archery. Beginners will without any instruction, most probably draw the bow and aim along the arrow, which is acceptable in the beginning of their learning. After
a while they will notice that there is more than just
drawing, aiming and release, especially when they shoot
at different distances. In different parts of the world
shooting traditional bows, with aiming over the arrow, is
part of the culture.
Traditional archery means different things to different people. For some, it means shooting a longbow or recurve without sights, stabilizers, or other tuning equipment. In this case, many traditional archers choose to shoot with carbon fiber arrows, or use a string made from durable synthetic materials. Others feel that to shoot traditionally, you must be shooting bows and arrows made only from natural materials such as wood, horn, and bird feathers. Although most traditional archers shoot bows made using modern techniques, there are other types to admire. Some archers value historical accuracy and prefer bows and arrows crafted using traditional techniques. They also might favor leather and other natural products when choosing armguards, gloves, quivers, and other gear.
