What is “Archery”?

Archery is the art of shooting arrows from a bow at a target. The closer the shot is to the center of the target, the higher the score will be. The individual scores are added up, and the archer with the highest total wins the competition.
              Bows are made of materials like Bamboo, carbon, fiber glass and have a sight and stabilizers. Stabilizers are attached to the bow to help keep it steady while shooting. Arrows have a sharp metal tip at the front and a groove at the back that slots over the bow string. The targets or butts are made of straw ropes that are stitched together. Colored paper or canvas targets are pinned to the targets.
