Archery Basics

Archery Basics


Archery is one of those skills that was always an advantage to have in the ancient world. From Korea to Rome, anyone who is a master in archery usually is also a member of the high ranking officials. Even the emperors and kings of old trained in archery because it is a very important skill to have. It was used in hunting wild animals as well as battling other people. There were a lot of schools and institutions that offered this skill, but most were taught by their families. It was also a skill that primarily taught to men, but many women also grew proficient with it.

These days, the idea of archery is only contained to those who have money or in the entertainment business. Since the invention of the gun, bows and arrows became quite
inefficient. Thus, they were considered obsolete and most people abandoned them. Imagine how different the World Wars could have been if we were still using the same weapon. As guns became mainstream, people almost forgot archery can exist in real life. Most of us only know of it through movies and other literature. Click here to learn more about this.

However, there is now a renewed interest in this sport mainly because of the aforementioned movies and literature. Superheroes using archery became quite popular and people wanted to emulate them. It is so much easier to do since you don’t need to have god-like powers or stupid amounts of money. All you need to have is a safe training ground, a good trainer and the most important set of equipment: The bow and arrow. There are even guides online that can help you through and some also show off their skills.

On the other hand, this doesn’t stop people from trying this sport. It has been an Olympic sport for so many years already and many are clamoring to learn this ancient game. If you are someone new to archery, it can be surprising to know that there are different kinds of
equipment. Each of them has a specific advantage in varying situations. It would really depend on what you need for you to decide which one is for you. Luckily, companies like Find Your Bow can really help you pick out some great selections.

Three Most Common Bows Used


Three Most Common Bows Used In The World:

1. Recurve

This is a very old design which has been used since the supposed reign of King David of Israel. It is known by its name because of its recognizable shape: it curves inwards at the center then curves outward and inward again. This elongated “W” shape makes it faster and easier to draw arrows. Recurve bows are also beginner friendly but there is a skill ceiling that would still be rewarding for serious archers. Most modern recurve types are made from metals like aluminum or alloys which bend easier and make them last longer. There are still recurve bows made out of wood though, and these are commonly referred to as traditional types.

2. Compound

If you are looking for the most modern rendition of the bow, then look no further than the compound series. This was just introduced to the world during the second half of the 20th century and has been the go-to-gear of the Olympics. It looks a lot more complicated than your other bows because there are a lot of mechanisms put into it.

This type was designed to make it even easier for many people to shoot an arrow even if they do not have the arm strength to do so. This is why it is also popular in any archery ranges because of how easily you can use it. If compared to other types, you don’t have to use too much energy to shoot a single arrow. Read more about them here: http://www.historyofarchery.com/archery-history/compound-bow/.

3. Longbow

The longbow is the oldest of the types. In fact, it is argued that it might be the design that was first used by humans. This is the kind that you always see in films which is why it is the most recognizable design. It used to be made with wood, but modern versions also used metal. The longbow has a longer range and power but it is only reserved for seasoned archers.
