How do you play the sport of the bow and arrow?

The sport with the bow and arrow is called archery, just to let you know. First, you grab a arrow and grab the string of the bow, which is the curved rod with the string. Then put the arrow in a sideways position right attached to the string of the bow. Pull the arrow back, allowing the string to move over to your position. Then, aim carefully. Next, you release the arrow with the string. The arrow will move faster depending how far you pull the string towards you. The objective is to hit the target. There are different spots that are worth different points on the target. If you hit the middle of the target with your arrow, you will receive the maximum amount of points possible. Keep repeating this process until you are a pro at archery.:).
