    I do both for fun!!! Hardly any knife throwing though, don't own any of my own just every now and then at my boyfriends, I've been meaning to get some though; and I have a bow and a few arrows, just for fun.

    I got a used ben pearsan cougar 7050 #50 28" recurve bow on ebay for $55 and its still working perfectly. So its not that expensive to get into archery if you get used stuff

    Archery is AWESOME! And I bet you guys will all get a laugh out of what my first bow was...It was a 35# short bow that I picked up at a renaissance fair for $65 from a guy with a fake Russian accent. Its made from bamboo and literally has a string (not a bow string) for the string... told you it would be funny didn't I? Its pretty well useless unless your teaching someone how to shoot instinctively, which it did for me very well! Granted it wont stick in a real target over 10 yards.

    Now I have my first "big-girl" toy. Its a 45# Gosshawk recurve that I picked up at my local shop for $165...then the guy I bought it from spent 3 hours with me tuning it, then when I bought my arrows we made them to fit the bow and that was 2 hours worth of tuning the arrows to the bow. To say the least my bow guy has threatened my life if I loose all of my arrows since if you buy the bow from him he doesn't charge you for tuning or maintenance. :)

    Who else does instinctive shooting? I honestly have never used sights...I tried looking through my boyfriends sights once and couldn't figure it out, totally foreign to me.

    I started shooting with a compound. Wish I had started instinctive, cause now I just can't do it! I can hit the whole target at ten yards with my recurve, but that's it. Can't hit what I'm aiming for without those sights on my compound :)

    I've been doing archery for almost a year now. A few months in, I knew I was an archer for life, so I bought my 26# Firefox recurve. Luckily I live in a wide open area so I can go shooting whenever I want! Anytime I'm stressed, that's what I do to unwind. :)

    I also do not use any sights when I'm shooting, though I only go target shooting. I don't hunt or anything like that. I tried to use sights at first and did worse with them, so I stopped and just learned to shoot by eye. It always impresses people for some reason. :P

    I have a bow I've been eyeing for YEARS - a basic recurve horsebow. It's only ~112 dollars, but I have very literally no money to buy it. It would be amazing to use in my spare time to shoot, and I'm just about dying to get it so I can start, but I can't justify the $$ for it. So, I eye it up online every so often. Hopefully some day.

    EDIT: Here's the one I'm eyeing. Want it soooo bad. :(

    I have a long hallway and I have a block target at the end of it. I shoot inside! When I get my new sight, I'll have to go outside so I can tune it in at 30 and 40 so it's hunting ready. I have a suspicion that I might be shooting a deer for my birthday :)

    I'm still keen on archery, I actually made my own bow. Yep, I found a branch and tied a string to it, lol. But I'm going to get my dad to carve me one out of this chunk of wood I have. He has his own bow, but its strung to tightly for me to be able to use :( curse my tiny arm muscles!
