The bow and arrow is a ranged weapon that consists of a flexible launcher (bow) and long-shafted projectiles (arrows).
Archery is the art, practice, and skill of shooting arrows using bows. A bowman or archer is a person who shoots arrows using a bow. A bowyer is someone who creates bows, a fletcher is someone who makes arrows, and an arrowsmith is someone who crafts metal arrowheads.
Long before recorded history, humans used bows and arrows for hunting and warfare, and the technique was widespread among prehistoric tribes. They were essential weapons of combat from antiquity until the early modern period, when the advent of more powerful and precise firearms rendered them increasingly outdated, and they were eventually phased out of warfare. Bows and arrows are primarily used for hunting and sports nowadays.
