We’re all aware of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. She’s a pretty, badass, bow-wielding female heroine in the books. And I even loved her depiction in the movie version.
Now, while this wasn’t the impetus for our date a few days ago, it makes a good segway huh? Last Friday, Jack and I decided to go arching together. Yes, we shot bows and arrows together. This was my first time doing so but apparently Jack had done some as a child. You see, little boys have archery parties while little girls have tea parties. Who knew?
In the end, he had a few more bulls-eye shots than I did. My single bulls-eye hit was from the furthest distance away though. Boo yah!
It was a pretty kick butt date, actually. We had a lot of fun. And rather than shooting guns, this was remarkable relaxing and pleasant. We both had four arrows in a round and we’d shoot all eight between us, then go down and yank them out of the wall. Repeat the process. It also helped that we had the whole range to ourselves, so we could shot whatever we wanted, and move around at will. I would love to go again sometimes, though I did pretty well this time. Maybe I’ll just go out on top. =D
Questions: Ever shot a bow and arrow?
Excited for the next movie installment of The Hunger Games?
