Bows and arrows are one of the oldest and most traditional forms of hunting and shooting. In recent years, television and movies have generated lots of interest in picking up the stick and string. But just what do you do if you or a family member decides to take up the sport? Today, there are more ways than ever to get started in archery: through local clubs and organizations, family members or friends, or even sporting goods stores and retailers. But there are a few things you should know before you go down to the local bait 'n' tackle and buy a relic to get started.
The Bowhunter puts tension on the string... Beads of sweat cover his brow as the shot presents itself... He hits full draw and takes the shot! The arrow twists through the air, and then the familiar thump sends back the report: A solid hit!! The archer turns and yells to his buddies that are standing by, “Make that shot, suckers!”
This sets the stage for an exciting and competitive day afield stump shooting with good friends… Traditional archery’s stump hunting at its best!
A strong, independent heroine with impressive archery skills hits the silver screen, and millions of kids around the world get their first exposure to the stick-n-string, bows-n-arrows! Thank you Hollywood!
As the latest big DVD release of the epic adventure blockbuster Hunger Games hits the shelves and Netflix, we at Tribe Archery are so excited… Archery has truly hit a homerun! Once again, archery has been made cool…. Just like Errol Flynn and Robin Hood back in 1938 made archery hip, so too have the Hunger Games movies. Young shooters really are Catching Fire for the sport!
Out of breath, I along with seven others tried to keep up with Marco as he effortlessly ascended the mountain. Earlier that morning we had set up a medical clinic in a small village in the Peruvian Andes Mountains. While the majority of our team remained there, a small group of us set out to go further up the mountain. The only way to access these remote homesteads was on foot or the back of a donkey. We were going to provide aid to some elderly individuals who couldn’t make it down.
