All About Archery
Archery is the national sport of the Kingdom of Bhutan.
Among the varieties of bows there are longbows, crossbows, pyramid bows, recurve bows, and reflex and decurve bows.
Another name for an archer is a "toxophilite."
The word "archery" derives from the Latin term
meaning bow and arrows.
Splitting an arrow down the middle by shooting another one in the middle of it is called a "Robin Hood."
Archers in most competitions, including the Olympics, must engrave their initials on their arrows.
A traditional and ceremonial form of Japanese archery called "kyudo" is considered an art form.
In the 1900 archery Olympics, live pigeons were used as targets.
When archers aim at a target 90 meters away, the size of the target is like the size of a thumbtack held at arm's length.
Field archery is when you put many targets around a forest area, not a plain flat range, which is more common.
