All you really need to know about archery is that Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor so that makes it all right in anyone’s book, right? That was our attempt at being funny obviously, but Robin Hood was one of the first pop culture icons to truly glorify the great sport of archery. The amazing thing about archery is that its roots date back to tens of thousands of years BC when bows and arrows were used specifically for hunting and survival. As time went on and other tools for completing those tasks were created the use of a bow and arrow become much more recreational and eventually become a sport called archery in the eighteenth century. There have been archers and bowmen across the world for the last four centuries and the International Archery Federation (FITA) has governed the sport since 1931. As a modern sport, archery can be seen in its different competitive forms like target archery, field archery, 3D archery, clout archery, and crossbow archery or even ski archery. Each type is a different variation of the sport using a different type of bow and arrow, target and scoring system.
