They can destroy their opponents from afar leaving only a few to reach their base. As time goes by, military defense developed and new fire arms are invented. These made archery an ineffective military weapon. Today, the hunting purpose of archery remains and is now practiced as a sport and hobby.

Archery may not need physical strength at first but it will surely require your complete attention and focus. The skill in archery is determined by the distance of your shooting range and the draw weight of the bow that you can handle. You can start at 15 yards using a 25 lb draw weight bow. As you learn how to aim properly and improve your accuracy, you will yearn for a longer shooting range and a better bow. Once you become an expert in archery, then you can start practicing it as a sport and begin joining competitions.
