Bryan Kolstad has many hobbies and interests outside of his work as a marine mechanic, and one of his favorites is archery. He first took an archery class as a young teenager, and was immediately engrossed by this challenging and exciting activity. Archers use bows to shoot arrows at targets, aiming for the center of the target. It is a popular sport around the world, and archery ranges can be found in most major cities in the United States.
If you or someone you know is interested in archery, it is easy to get started. First, find a well-rated archery club located near you. These clubs will likely offer lessons for beginners. It may help to go to the club and meet the instructors before taking your first lesson, or to observe an archery practice before participating. Once you have decided that you would definitely like to try the sport, you will need a bow and arrow. Most archery ranges will have shops where you can rent or buy the equipment that you need. They will be able to help you determine which type of bow and arrow is right for you, as well as what size you need.
There are a few different types of archery that you can participate in. Most people think of target archery when they think of the sport –shooting arrows at a bullseye target. You can also participate in field archery, which takes place on an outdoor course, usually in the woods. Bryan Kolstad has participated in both types of archery throughout his lifetime, and enjoys them both.
