Types of Bow


 

Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows using a bow, from Latin arcus. Historically, archery was used for hunting and combat, whilst in modern times, its main use is as a recreational activity.

Archery has been around for centuries. Originally, bows were made from one or two materials with simple construction but, over the years, technology and lightweight materials has led to the development of different types of bows. Several types of archery bows, including longbows, recurve bows and compound bows are all available to meet the needs of the individual archer.
