Archery is one of the oldest sports, dating back over 5,000 years that is still practiced today. The bow was formerly used for hunting and warfare but has since transcended to becoming a recreational sport. Now there are numerous indoor and outdoor competitions archers can participate in on various recreational levels. Target archery is the most popular form of archery today, in which archers aim and shoot at non-moving circular targets at distances of 18 M or 25 M using various types of bows. These include longbows, barebow, recurve, and coupound bows. On the other hand a skilled hunter will use 3D archery where one shoots at foam, three-dimensional, and often full sized animals at various distances.
