A target sport requiring a great deal of concentration in which competitors use bows to propel arrows towards the centre of a target. Historically, archery was used for hunting and in battle; in the modern day, however, it is mostly practised as a sport. Individuals who practise archery are called archers. The archer with the best score wins the competition.
The Association régionale de tir à l’arc de Montréal (ARTAM) promotes, supports, and continues the tradition of practising archery in Montreal. The ARTAM manages the only outdoor archery range on the island of Montreal.
