Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow, from Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, its main use is that of a competitive sport and recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically known as an “archer” or a “bowman”, and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a toxophilite.
