    Question General Archery Questions

    I have a few questions about archery generally. Thanks to those who take the time to answer.

    - Does anyone have any strategies for aiming and hitting the target? My arrows always seem to just graze the right of the target.

    - What bows would you suggest a beginner get? I dont want the gadget-y or crossbow bows, but just the metal-ish ones you bend to put a string on.

    - And how much would that kind of bow (with arrows) cost?

    - Does anyone know any exercises to better the muscles used for archery to improve the distance the arrow goes, aiming coordination, and such?

    Are you looking for a traditional bow? If so, I don't think I will be of much help with anything, unless you are looking for high end Olympic style equipment. Even then I just know what direction to point you in.

    Move your sight to the right.

    About $300-350

    Push-ups and running
    Hope that helps.

    I think you should find a good pro shop and check out some of the offerings in person. Try a web search for "Traditional archery", or "recurve bows" and see if that gets you anywhere. I know Hoyt has their traditional line listed on their website.
