Thanks much in part to the trilogy of the Hunger Games, archery is a newfound sport to many.
At least for the time being, archery is expanding rapidly and pop culture has sparked the trend for women especially to begin to learn more about the sport.
Whether it relates to hunting or archery as a competition sport, the growing interest in something that doesn’t have a screen or keyboard is fantastic. Even if it took a fictional story to create a buzz, growing the sport and knowledge with new faces is something that we should all be excited about.
Fred Bear said, “The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind.” It’s something that has been around for thousands and thousands of years. The civilized life we live now makes our need for the bow and arrow less, but as hunters we still carry on this tradition.
By bowhunting specifically, the hunting season is extended past the firearm deadlines, which makes for a more exciting and engaged hunt altogether.
Do you know any friends who have picked up the sport of archery recently?
