I Love Archery

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 309 People

    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...

    I've Been Practicing Archery Since I Was 8...

    I'm 16 now, and I still go to the archery field three times a month. It's kinda addicting, to be honest.

    I've been doing archery

    for five years. I love it, when I'm at Girl Scouts the little girls call me Merida and my little sister calls me Katniss. Can't wait to go back to do more archery classes today.

    archery and bow hunting have not only become my primary hobby but also my passion in everyday life. Seldom does a day go by where I am not tinkering with one of my bows or a set of arrows, reading a bow hunter magazine or book, or watching a bow hunting show on DVD or online. To...

    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...

    I haven't tried to shoot a bow and arrow in forever (probablly 15-16 years). I had such a great time shooting today that I know which bow will be my first, though I have to find a place to practice. I think it's a great skill to have, and it's fun!!! I got such a nice adrenalin...
