One of the benefits of archery is that in the long run, it’s not a really expensive hobby. Unlike firearms, you don’t need to spend an arm and a leg on ammunition to maintain your proficiency. And since bows aren’t as loud or damaging as firearms, there’s a good chance that you won’t need to pay to visit an archery range unless you live in the town. Your backyard would be sufficient for that.
However, there will be some steep up front costs. Still not as bad as the price of a firearm in most cases, but a really prime quality bow can you set you back. If you’re just beginning to get interested in archery and you’re not sure if you want to commit to those costs, look at the video below. It’ll show you how to make a awfully powerful and effective bow with little over PVC, paracord, and driveway markers.
