The bow and arrow plays a large role in a hunter’s society. Over the years, the advancement of the compound bow has changed the way people hunt. Many people don’t realize that we have our bowhunting pioneers to thank. If it wasn’t for them, Archery wouldn’t exist and we wouldn’t have the opportunity to make advancements to the sport! Traditional bowhunting consisted of using a stick bow, set of arrows, quiver, finger tab, and arm protector. Fred Bear was a bowhunting pioneer and is known as “The Father of Bowhunting” by many. He is the inventor of Bear Archery and one of the reasons bowhunting exists today! Many people in our modern world take things for granted. It is for this reason we should consider

Trebuchets are most commonly known as medieval weapons used in the Middle Ages. Us three were to build a smaller scale of the trebuchet and had to make sure it hit the target two out of the five times. We had to build a hinged-counter weight type of trebuchet with wheels that could throw a ping pong or golf ball. Through the paper I will explain the history throughout trebuchets and why to have wheels and to have a hinged counter weight on the trebuchet. Also the calculations on the potential energy and velocity are through this report. Our trebuchet met all of the requirements that were to be made and it hit the target three out of the five times. This report will
From the beginning of humankind tools have been used for the use of survival and livelihood. One of the most useful but underrated tools ever invented is the tomahawk. It’s humble beginnings go back thousands of years to the days of wood and stone. The most underappreciated form of this tool is the pipe tomahawk. A history both complex and exciting, the pipe tomahawk and the DeQuindre tomahawk both hold great interest to share, such as design and bloodline.

The compound bow is a much more advanced bow, however, the fundamentals of it are still the same. The new bow and old bow both have a main shaft, string, and arrow, and the user pulls back on the string to shoot. The main differences are that the compound bow is made up of pulleys and cables/strings. “This mechanical advantage [is used] to throw an arrow faster than a traditional bow” (Randy A.). This makes the modern bow a lot more powerful and effective. Even with its upgrades, the bow hasn’t been able to keep up and the gun has superseded it to become the new long range weapon. “Since the invention of gunpowder, hunters [have] embraced the greatest advancement in the hunting world” (Sam Ott). Gunpowder has enabled humans to increase our hunting range drastically. Before, long range would have been around 100 yards, but with the gun, long range is now hundreds of

This early arrow just had a stone on the top. As stone on the top has the advantage over the natural material, stone creates deep cuts and wound provided by the stone was much more than provided by the natural material. So target by the stone arrow would die easily. There is as yet no direct evidence for bows during the African Pleistocene, and the hypothesis that very early, stone points were used to tip darts or arrows remains unsupported by use-trace studies and contextual evidence. Some hypothesized concomitants, such as the use of bow drills, also remain
My problem is, “How does the type of bat affect the swing’s exit velocity?”. I am testing the different exit velocities of wood and metal bats. I decided chose this topic because I am an avid baseball lover and want to learn more about my favorite sport. Also being around the sport for so long I have heard many people talk about this topic but I wanted to test it out myself. All my newfound information might even end up helping become a better baseball player.
The history of archery goes back thousands upon thousands of years. There have been stone arrowheads discovered dating from as far back as over 25,000 years go.

Bows and arrows were first used solely for hunting purposes but as time went on they became a deadly and dominating force in warfare.
