    I like bows. Bows are nice.

    I, myself, prefer English and Middle Eastern archery, myself. To a lesser extent, I also like Mongol archery.

    You Missed out Viking Archery :P

    I don't practice it; Too easy to take out a man's eye, even with rubber reenactment tips. But it's a thing, with its own unique kind of bow and everything.

    Bam, I added it. But generally, you could simply practice on your own... :P

    I used to be into it since my brother was certified to instruct English style. I haven't really found the time or motivation to pick it up again in quite a while, though I believe the gear is still in the house somewhere.

    I voted 'other' because it's my style. It's instinctive shooting rather than line of shaft sighting. I like the style because it's flashy. I saw another archer use it for demonstration of styles and copied it as a signature as part of my act to get the attention of the crowds when performing. Was getting good at it (meaning I hit targets well) and gave more of a Robin Hood image to my role.

    For those wondering, you don't look down the arrow shaft to sight your target. The bow is held a few inches away to one side as if it were a separate entity. You learn to focus on the arrow tip and 'instinctively' line up the shot to the target. You might think of it as 'shooting from the hip'. Done well, audiences find it almost magical.
