Miri, you'll need one of these:

A motor trike to carry all the gear. Not exactly Legolas is it? Seriously though, find a local archery club, they'll have courses. Don't do what me and my brother did. He made me a bow using elastic and an old garden cane as an arrow. It was far more effective than either of us had hoped. I fired the arrow over the house! Needless to say it was confiscated and we were grounded.

That is too funny, tarc!

@ Legolas23:
I am not sure how experienced of an archer you are, but here are a few general tips:
1) Build up to your final weight. Work out those muscles daily if you can
2) Practice as often as possible. Short sessions frequently throughout the week is usually better than one very long session.
3) Practice at different distances to the target. If you practice one distance, you will get very good... for just one distance.
4) You can only shoot calmly if you can think calmly. Only practice if you can relax.
5) Find other archers in friends, family, coworkers, etc. Team support is always helpful.
May the shooting go well,

Those look like good tips, LareowNorthan!

My older brother got a bow not too long ago. It's a recurve with a 35 pound draw. I've only shot it a few times, but I really like it so far. Now I can finally practice again, and hopefully become a fairly accurate shot once more.

I finally think it may be warm enough for me to shoot! My advice would be to protect your fingers and your wrists, especially the first few days that you are shooting. Always check your gear and arrows before you shoot, and never use arrows with any deformities. Take breaks during the first week of the season and never shoot at anyone. If there are others watching you or observing you, be sure that they are standing behind you and not ahead of you. Some of these are common sense and I now that you are all smarter than that, but hey, you never know who is reading this.
