					Types of Archery Bow
• Archery is known as the act of thrusting arrows using a bow.
  In the past, archery was used for battle and for hunting. These
  days, it is more known as a skill, an art or form of recreational
  activity. An archer or a bowman is referred to an individual
  who joins in archery. The term toxophilite is used to call an
  expert in archery. When shooting arrows at a target from a
  certain distance to test precision, this is called competitive
  archery. Another name for competitive archery is target
  archery and is the most admired form of archery.

  bows and long bows. There are also available compound bow
  types. Bow making is believed to have substantial effect on a

• A compound bow is the type of bow that allows powerful and
  accurate shots. It is made of rigid limbs and a pulley system.
  The latter one allows the archer to turn them when dragging
  back on the string. A traditional bow and used among tribal
  groups is a self bow. Self bows are carved out from one piece
  of wood and are known for being the simplest type of bow.
  The recurve bow is the type that allows storing of more
  energy. The bow’s tips curve away from the archer. It is mostly
  used for horseback because it is the easiest to handle.
  Crossbows are used as war weapon by tradition. The bow is
  set and projectile arrows are released after pulling the trigger.
  In modern time these are used for target practice and are still
  used for hunting purposes. The last type to be discussed is the
  flat bows. This type is usually used in Europe and in the
  United States. A flat bow’s limbs appear wider at front view
  but narrower at side view. A flat bow is invented to have the
  best cross-sectional cut among all types of youth bows.
• The arrow is used in archery to determine the distance,
  accuracy and strength of the shot. Length and weight are
  equally important in an arrow. Other archery equipment
  needed is a quiver and an arrow rest. The quiver holds the
  arrow in place while the arrow rest enables arrows to fly
  consistently.
