    More Than A Sport

    When I was about seven or so, my father put a bow in my hands and taught me to shoot. I learned the ethics of life and death, survival, and patience over years of bow hunting. He would take me hunting, and I would spend hours upon hours waiting for a target from high in the trees...

    Traditional Archery

    I am very very interested in traditional archery, including composite types (Eastern) and European (Yew Longbow), as well as primitive archery.Anyone on EP into this? I have a Hungarian style composite as well as a couple of recurves.Thanks.

    Haha, I don't know if this would be

    stereotypical, but I'm Native American, and the first time I shot in archery, I made it center on the very first shot, including 3 other times. I guess beginners luck maybe? Haha

    I've never shot a bow

    and arrow before, but I can't help feeling as if I would be good at it. Maybe I just really want one after watching too much InuYasha and The Walking Dead. Kagome and Daryl can really shoot some arrows. Don't even get me started with Hawkeye.

    Started when I was a kid in boyscouts.

    When I was 8, I outscored EVERY SINGLE other kid in camp. I could fire left handed, right handed, compound, recurve, longbow, you name it. I stayed into archery as a hunting sport with my dad until I was 14. I prefer a bow for hunting, because, when you spend time, following...

    As a child I did the summer camp thing,

    they had archery as an activity. I was ok with the old equipment that they had. I've always wanted to get back into it. In the last few years I bought a house in the country that has a wooded area in the back. I think when I get a little bit of extra cash I'm going to try and...

    Unfortunately, only tried it once,

    in Turkey many years ago. Hot youngster trying to impress. Pulled the longbow back as far as I could and the arrow sped to a distant board. The instructor was agog and said to my partner, "wtf do you feed him on!!?" - the arrow passed clean through the board!
