For millennia, archery has evolved into an interesting form of sports and hobby that the whole family can enjoy. Now, it is possible for us to enjoy sports and competition with friends and family. With archery, a quality time with our family is literally at our fingertips. As a beginner, we should understand about things that we want to get from sports. We need to choose the proper accessory equipment and bow. We should get familiarized with archery activities.

When choosing the proper bow, our selection should be determined by the dominance of our eyes. We could determine eye dominance by doing a little test. We could point to any object on the wall and close our right eye. If the object, such as light switch, seems to be out of alignment, then we could have a dominant right eye. In this case, we should tell the bow sellers to get us a right hand model. We should choose a bow that is appropriate for beginners. It means that we should get a bow with draw strength under 80lbs. It is recommended for beginners to get a recurve bow.

Each person has a unique draw length. This is usually determined by the width of our chest and the length of our arm. In the pro archery shop, our ody can be measured to determine the proper type of bow. After it is determine, we could choose the best price and selection.

They are less durable and we can use them for various target practice sessions. We could also make our own arrows and they are quite fun to make.

When buying arrows, we should consider their spine and length. Arrow spine is essentially the flexibility of the shaft. In general, foot pound rating determines the flexibility of arrows, Stiffer arrows will have higher spine rating. Beginners could choose arrows with intermediate flexibility, which is rated at about 80lbs. Arrow length should match our draw length, two inches longer or shorter.

For beginners, it should be enough for them to use the basic 3-pin sight. Proper comfort and safety are necessary during archery training sessions. We may use safety gears on the middle and index fingers on the hand that we use to retract the bowstring and notched arrow. Even if we have a lightweight 60lbs recurve bow, using it repeatedly can be quite painful. Professionals could use compound bow with 160lbf of drawing power, exerting significant punishments on their fingertips.
