    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!

    Shoot

    I shot my first arrow at age 8. It was at some Renaissance Fair. The bows were terrible and the arrows kind of bent. But I did fairly well. Totally forgot about it til later I went to camp. Better arrows, better bows. I was a natural. Won every contest and turned out to be just...

    Archery - Traditional Recurve

    I love archery; started last year before it became cool. I trained on a Samick Polaris Takedown Recurve 66" - 20 lb. Now thinking of buying my own takedown recurve. I know a Cartel Fantom riser with ILF limbs is a lot of bow for just under $200 but also means getting the...

    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...

    This is my bow I got a few years ago :) I love

    Flight of the Arrow My target comes into focus

    as I bring my bow up to make the shot. I take deep breaths to ease my nerves. The last breath I hold and let half out. As I pick a spot, my pin settles and floats. I relax my arms and tighten my upper back muscles as I gently squeeze the trigger on my release. Everything...

    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 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.

    First Time In A Long Time. :-)

    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...

    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.

    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

    For the last few years,

    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...

    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...

    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.
