I've always wanted to try archery, but there aren't many archery ranges around here. So the answers to all the questions are no.

1.Do you shoot archery?

Yes

 

2.Do you own a bow? A crossbow?

Yes I have a 10lb training bow, a pistol crossbow (I don't use it at all) and I just got a 50lb Recurve bow <- I have a hard time stringing this sucker

 

3.Do you hunt?

Well in essence yes though I mostly hunt fish I do want to start hunting deer but only when we have a low food supply which isn't going to be happening soon

 

4.Have you been in archery competitions?

no, I probably wouldn't do well honestly I don't have a target to practice with so I don’t know how well my aim is. Though when I was messing around with my cousins kiddy bow I found that I have better aim if I am walking then when I am standing still.

 

Also a hint for people with Recurve bows or other wooden bows don't keep them strung because the string will stretch and the bow will bend to that shape causing it to lose it's powerfulness.

This is a great bow for beginners, as it's onlt a 20lb draw weight. I have shot it for three years and have only needed to replace the arrow guide and have the bowstring fixed once.

i dont shoot yet, but i hope to get into the sport once i have the expendable income to afford lessons and a bow

im hoping to eventually get competent with hunting-archery, in case theres some world apocalypse or i get stranded in the wild where the skill set will be useful. i dont plan to actually hunt unless i would need to

i am hoping to get good enough at competitive archery to enter competitions though. it would be nice to have some pocket cash earned from a hobby

 

but as of right now i dont do any of the above

I shoot when I can. I'm looking into really getting into the hobby when I have the time. Both my wife and I are vegetarians, so no hunting or anything. I only like traditional archery, not crossbows or compounds.

Ever since I fell in love with the Elves of Middle-Earth, I have always wanted to learn archery.

 

The university where I studied offered basic archery and advanced archery as physical education classes. These classes were the closest opportunities I got to learning archery. Alas, those classes failed to fit my schedule during my entire university life. This pursuit fell out of my priorities as I became busy with other things as well.

 

I don't own a bow or a crossbow. I don't hunt. I have never been in archery competitions.

Some ten years ago indoor shooting ranges were all the rage and they just started popping up everywhere - in malls, small shophouses converted, makeshift stalls. It was fun to try and get a feel for it as it was something new we'd never done before. Eventually they just started charging too much for arrow batches and the fad died down, so even if I wanted to revist it, I couldn't find a shooting range.

 

They used those weird heavy metal ones that I couldn't for the life of me name. Searching on google they seem most similar to recurve you mentioned. They wouldn't have different sizes for kids or people with longer arms.

 

My accuracy ranged between bullseye and 'that guy's target 3 lanes down from me'.

 

No to the rest of it, evidently.

I wish I could practice archery. Sadly, my eyesight is quite bad, and even with glasses I don't believe my aim is the best. Seems like an awesome kind of thing to do, imo.

I have done before,

 

2.Do you own a bow? A crossbow?

 

I used to have a traditional wooden bow. I

I originally bought it for a costume, actually. Unfortunately, I reused it for another costume at a convention, and it was stolen when I left it at a table to go put my trash from lunch in the bin. sad.gif

 

3.Do you hunt?

No, whilst I do still eat meat, I love animals, and could never just hunt them when I can easily just go buy meat if i so wanted it. The only scenario I would ever hunt was if I was lost and starving to death. And even then, I'd feel guilty. =P

 

4.Have you been in archery competitions?

No, and don't really plan to be.

Yes. Currently trying to get a "lighter" bow though because all I have are two very heavy Native American bows that are uncomfortable for me to drawback.

I have two NA long bows, looking to possibly get an English longbow or a smaller bow.
