Default Archery...anybody?

Never really taken the time to get into archery, but we've got a nice range close-by and I'm going to go check it out real soon. Other than bowhunting, I've never known anyone who did it for "sport" per say. Any thoughts?

My cousin did it for sport in HS when he couldn't play baseball any longer. And now he only hunts with his bow. He's an archery technician at the new Cabela's in North Augusta.

Little Man wants to get into archery - for sport and hunting. He got his first bow for Christmas.

I shoot my bow mainly because I live in city limits and cant shoot my guns in my yard. I love shooting it and have taken a few deer with it as well. It is very relaxing to go out and let a few fly. The most fun is the beginning when your pattern starts to shrink and you start being able to consistently hit the same area.

i used to hunt exclusively with a bow. i really enjoyed shooting at all times of year though. bowfishing for those alligator gar down that direction is fun i hear. we had "man day" a few weeks ago and "bow-golf" happened, that was a ton of fun. sadly, i did better than my regular golf......

i might add though, it can become insanely expensive hobby. go the purist rout and keep it simple (long bow, recurve, make your own arrows, simple arrowheads)

back when i was hunting, carbon arrows just became widespread..... yeah i spent the money. it is also amazing how they vanish never to be found again when the flight path is too shallow in grass or leaves..... used muzzy 4 blade, we didnt know what alluminoks were.... thank god.....

If you get interested in buying, buy used, maybe on archerytalk.com classifieds. You'll just have to google on finding your draw length, etc.

Kind of what I'm feeling. I live in the 'burbs and grew up being able to just shoot - figure I can scratch the itch this way or just go down the road to an official "range".

Thanks for the info so far, y'all.
