4 Reasons to Take Up Archery

From The Avengers to The Hunger Games, there have been a number of movies in recent years that have brought the sport of archery back into the mainstream.

More and more people have become interested in taking up archery, and for good reasons. No matter what your age, level of physical fitness, or even disability, almost anyone willing can give archery a shot!

Still on the fence? Here are four reasons to take up archery:

Archery builds character.

Archery is not a sport of speed or strength, but skill. With the various forms of archery practiced under all types of climatic conditions, you have to practice, practice, and practice some more to hone your skills. Archery practice teaches you patience, focus, discipline—character traits that will benefit you in all aspects of life. And believe it or not, archery also a great lesson in physics.

Archery is therapeutic.

Everyone needs downtime. Some people practice yoga, and others grab their bow and set up their archery target. Archery gives you time to clear your mind by focusing solely on the task at hand and drowning out the rest. Plus, pulling off a great shot also releases a hit of feel-good endorphins to brighten your mood. And shooting a SpyderWeb Target removes even more frustration from the equation with easy arrow pull and immense stopping power.

Archery keeps you in shape.

Archery is a great way to stay in shape without having to spend hours at the gym. Archers need significant stamina as well as upper body and core strength to pull bows and keep them steady while aiming. And while drawing a bow strengthens these muscles, it also improves balance and stability, which, in turn, improve posture as well as hand-eye coordination.

Archery is fun!

The main reason everyone should give archery a go is that is just plain fun! It’s fun, it’s challenging, and it can take up as little or as much time as you want. There are also many different aspects of archery, which means you’ll never get bored trying to conquer the next challenge. Getting pretty good with your target? Try hunting, or enter a competition, or give bowfishing a shot—the options abound!

Spider web no speed limit

My bow speed is 450 ft a second and the target has no problem stopping my bolt. I can pull the bolt out easily with one hand.

High-Density ST 18 XL Archery Target-No Speed Limit

ST 18 XL

I am very pleased! I was suprised at it’s weight. I made a custom archery target stand. I don’t need anything to support the ST 18. It’s weight alone can take my high speed tenpoint Sieges pounding all day long! Arrows are very easy to pull out. High quality target! Joel

Great Product! Very Easy to remove arrows!

I had heard that this target was great, but was still surprised how easy my arrow came out after shooting it with my 330fps Matthew's compound bow. I almost thought the first arrow was hadn't made clean impact because it came out so easily! Cans wait to try it with my new Ravin crossbow that is coming!
