Archery can be a practice, an art and a skill in using both the bow and arrow. Coming from the Latin word 'Arcus', this has been in the lives of people way back in history for combat and hunting purposes but in much modern times; archery is now a recreational activity and a person who participates in archery is called a 'bowman' or an 'archer'. A person who is fond of archery or is an expert in the sport is often called a "toxophile" - a student, or lover of archery.
Just like everything else in the lives of many people, there will always be modified or newer versions of technology, vehicles, clothing etc. Archers on the other hand, crave for much better, much stronger bows for better performance.
