For Those Who Love to Watch the Arrows Fly

“Nothing clears a troubled mind better than shooting a bow”. – Fred Bear

“Archery is the practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically called an archer or a bowman—and a person who is fond of or an expert at archery is sometimes called a toxophilite”. – Wikipedia

“Archery may not be the Sport of all Kings, but Archery is the King of Sports”. – Howard Hill

-Cay McManus is a World Class Archer (literally). She has won the Indoor World Championship one time, and the World Outdoor Championship 5 times.

She has also won The National Field Archery Championship in various categories a total of 33 times, a record for any woman archer. As she said to me recently, would you like to help me dust some championship bowls?

It is an amazing accomplishment in any sport. As you can see, she knows her way around the deer woods too!

Rock On!
