Archery, once considered a means for hunting and combat, is considered a sport in the modern day. The objective is to fire arrows using a bow and hit a designated target. Archery is considered as one of the safest sports and may be practiced by anyone from grade-school children to senior citizens. Moreover, the injury rate in archery is also less than one incident per 1,000 participants.
