Archery is a sport where an individual attempts to shoot an arrow with a bow towards a target placed at varying distances away. Originally invented for hunting and war, the bow and arrow originate back to the Paleolithic era. Today, archery is practiced and preformed competitively in amateur and olympic settings, where individuals shoot and score based on the distance and accuracy of the shot. Arrows are designed with an arrow at the front and a fletching at the end. While all bows consist of a string and elastic limbs, there are varying types of bows such as including long bows, compound bows, and crossbows.

How do you make an archery target?

Take an empty box (or create your own with wood) and fill it with old clothing, foam plank, or stacked cardboard. Then seal it tight with a tarp and put a circle for a target or spray paint a symbol or circle. You could also make a target by getting a bale of hay or straw to shot at.

Where did archery originate?


Dating back to the Stone Age, Archery was used for hunting and warfare around 20,000BC, Archery as a sport was first introduced in the early 1900s as it was easy to manufacture bows and arrows. Archery has been seen in all regions of the world early in its existence so the origin is unclear.

Who is the god of archery?

Artemis is a goddess of the archery, hunting and the moon. She is a master archer along with her twin god Apollo. There are legends of the gods of archery being able to shoot arrows for miles to hit their targets.
