A beginning archer must remember that archery is not a game, nor is the equipment toys. The true archer knows that archery is not a game of Robin Hood, but a serious matter that involves a lot of dependability—from you and others. The best areas to practice archery are somewhere no one else will be. A dirt embankment behind the target makes for the safest shooting area. Be sure that all those watching and practicing stand behind the archer.
Safety check all your equipment, the bow, the string and the arrow, making sure it will not break before or after you release. After shooting, be sure to pull the arrows from the target carefully. A wrong pull done too hard can poke someone behind you in the eye. Don’t point the bow and arrow up when drawing. Keep the arrow target-high, in case it releases untimely.
Archery essentially is not that hard of a sport, per se. Often, the most difficult part of archery is to know what the heck you’re doing—aside from putting an arrow in the string, pulling back and letting go. Though archery is this simple, it is not that simple to master. A beginner interested in becoming an archer should seriously think about the correct ways to approach archery, starting with safety, basic bow set up, and shooting true with correct form. This quick reference guide to archery should set you right should you be in need of some beginner advice.
