As a Prepared American, I enjoy reading, listening to and writing about all things related to that particular focus. But a cancerous idea is spreading within the preparedness community that, if things go very badly, will get people killed: the bow and arrow.
Archery is hot right now for a number of reasons, and our January visit to the Archery Trade Association (ATA) show in Louisville reflected that reality. The show has grown quite large and proves that, in a somewhat stagnant hunting industry, archery and bow hunting are putting more people both in the field and on the shooting range. Aside from all that over-inflated “extreme” and militaristic marketing used on too many hunting products, the archery business is alive and thriving.
