Archery for Fun and Defense

As a prepper I don’t want to hurt anyone, but I want to be ready to defend myself.

Bows and arrows have always been of interest to me but, I admit, I’ve done little to develop my ability with them.

Thanks in part to the “The Hunger Games,” “Brave,” and even the recent “Avengers” movie, interest in archery has climbed. USA Archery, the governing body for the Olympic sport has shown staggering growth over the last few years. In the past year membership in local clubs has increased 54%.

With all that in mind, one of my sons recently sent me the link to this video. I encourage you to watch it. Frankly I had no idea such feats of ability could be achieved with a bow.

I think I should get my bow out and start practicing.
