Types of Bows
Bows are one of the oldest weapons technology still used today. Not only are bows still used today for both sport and hunting, their original designs are still used by some archers who are uninterested in modern compound bows. Of course, even old fashioned bow designs are often made of modern materials, like backed or composite bows. Today's archers demand bows that will continue to perform well year after year.
Crossbows are a favorite for bow hunting as they can maneuvered a little more easily and the archer doesn't have to contend with the arm strain of drawing and holding the bow in a drawn position before firing. Compound bows are similarly preferred by hunters for their enhanced power. An archer using a compound bow, with its levering system and stiffer limbs, saves strength by using less energy to produce the same results.
In recent years archery has seen a resurgence in popularity due to pop culture characters like The Hunger Games' (2008) Katniss Everdeen, DC Comics' Green Arrow and Marvel Comics' Hawkeye. While all of these heroes undoubtedly owe a measure of their popularity to legendary archers like Robin Hood, their appearances in books, TV shows and movies have introduced a younger generation to the thrill of shooting bows and crossbows.
