Traditional Bows at Hit or Miss Archery
A traditional bow is probably the type of bow that you think of when you think of archery. These bows are more traditional (hence the name) and won’t have more modern equipment like scopes, sights, stabilizers or other accessories. Most traditional bows are made of wood and don’t use synthetic or metal materials.
If you’ve ever wanted to be like Robin Hood or Katniss Everdeen in your archery skills, you’ve wanted to try a traditional bow. There are many kinds of traditional bows, including a longbow and a traditional recurve bow. Archers of all experience levels can appreciate the classic feeling of pulling a bowstring back with an arrow and aiming directly at a target without any aid or assistance.
Even though traditional bows may sound old fashioned, many modern archers find them to be an exciting challenge. Training with a traditional bow can be more difficult than training with a compound bow, especially because you don’t get additional support from modern gadgets. The reward from studying traditional archery is that you get a better understanding of the history of the sport and you may be better shooter overall.
At Hit or Miss Archery, we offer a variety of new and used traditional bows for you to choose from. Talk with one of our archery technicians in our Pro Shop to find the right bow for you.
