Any archers on the site?

I was wondering if there where any other archers on the site. How long have you been doing archery? What bow do you use? Post pics!

I have a red Hoyt Excel and shoot in competitions. I'm training to hopefully make the South African Olympic team in 4 years. I've only been shooting since the beginning of the year but I train very hard.

Uhm, yes! I have been doing it about 6 years, with my dad's various old bows. I stopped because I get terrible bruises up my arms even when I use full arm guards, but I have been wanting to start again really badly!! About a year ago I was going to take a class, but m dad obsessively bugged me like I was the son he never had, so I skipped it but was thinking about joining again. I don't have any pictures but my friend wants me to teach her how, so I will probably be at the range in the next month or so, and I will probably have pictures then ") I am so exited to see who else enjoys archery, as I think it is definitely one of the best sports you can "play" Happy And you have a super nice bow!! The bows my dad has are low quality, so I need to save up for my own ")

I L-O-V-E archery! I don't do it regularly, but I do it with some of my cousins at family get-togethers. I have pretty good aim and a decent amount of control and power. I don't know what bow I use when I shoot because I live near the city and don't have anywhere I could practice without the risk of injuring a neighborhood child, so I just borrow one of my cousin's bows when I meet up with them. I am thinking of potentially doing archery more regularly, though.
