I don't know what it is but shooting a bow stirs a fire deep down inside of me that makes for a memorable experience every time I pick up my bow. There is something about being able to put an arrow downrange into a target. Hunting with a bow is also a thrill and an adventure in itself.
The bow is a primative weapon, however it is a great tool for the whole family to get involved with. There are many ranges in the Chicago area that you can get out and shoot at and Cabela's can get you into a great set-up without breaking the bank.
In talking with Diane Schneider from Cabela's she has told me of an event that will be held up in Hoffman estates this weekend. They are going to be having an Archery Classic that will be full of seminars and professionals to help guide the novice to the pro in all aspects of shooting and hunting with a bow.
Here is what the line-up will be for the weekend:
