Bows are great weapons to survive any kind of disaster. Archery was born more than 10,000 to 9,000 years BC. People all over the world have been using bows to hunt or fight for the last 12,000 years.

With a bow you can hunt for food and fight enemies. Bows are silent and arrows can be reused or made in the nature. If you want to survive a disaster, where you might have to isolate yourself from the civilization, it’s time to start shooting arrows. Archery is actually a pretty fun hobby and if you are a hunter, switching from guns to bows will increase the challenge and satisfaction.
