What's in an Archery Shop?

How An Archery Shop Can Change Your Life

Our world is a different place to what it was 50 years ago. Today, life is lived at a much faster pace. People are losing their connection to wild places and wilder animals. Folks are forgetting that nature just isn’t a place to visit, it is home.

There is nothing on earth that is equal to the feeling of your release arm flying backward, your bow arm shooting forward, and seeing your arrow pierce your target. Archery is a not only a challenge and a skill, it’s a real human instinct that anyone can have a go at.

Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow and go out to the field and hunt game for me – Genesis 27:3

Ever since humans painted ancient drawings on the walls of caves, archery has been a part of our being. It is a discipline which we mastered for its countless benefits. We have used archery to hunt food, defended homes, and in battle time, it’s helped us destroy and defend empires.

But the bow and arrow is more than a weapon. Archery is a part of what it means to be human. Throughout history it has been contemporaneous with our continuing evolution. Without the development of archery, civilization wouldn’t exist in its current form.

The gigantic tension before the shooting of an arrow, and the total relaxation seconds later, is my way of connecting with the universe – Paulo Coelho

If the primal urge of archery is getting its hooks into you, Combat Australia is the perfect archery shop and hunting ground for your archery needs. They stock simple, traditional style longbows which have solid penetration and excellent range. They can also easily arrange to have one custom made to your exact specifications.

They also sell a variety of recurve bows. Recurve bows are much lighter and more versatile than longbows, and they allow for a better range of options and configurations. Recurve bows allow the archer greater accuracy and can achieve the same pull weight in a shorter arm length (and do it in a variety of ways).

When you’re ready to take your archery to the next level, Combat Australia can help you. They have Australia’s largest selection of Compound bows under one roof. It can be challenging to choose the right compound bow yourself, so it’s best to take advantage of their staff's expertise and let them help you choose.

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

They supply absolutely everything including arrow rests, bow bags, quivers, targets, protective equipment, archery release aids, replacement parts, ghillie suits and so much more.
