Archery has two variations in the SCA: target archery and combat archery. Target archery, as the name implies, involves shooting a real arrow at a target. Bows are generally longbows and not the recurves seen today. Combat archery involves shooting blunted arrows or crossbow bolts at armoured combatants. Just as in armoured combat, there are rules to ensure the safety of those involved.
