Archery in Bhutan

Archery is the national game of Bhutan. While some people love paying on traditional bamboo bows, some, especially in the urban areas, have taken to compound bow. The modern bow of choice in the kingdom is the hi-tech which are designed and manufactured for taking down big game in the wilds like bear and moose. Rest assured, being a Buddhist country, these compound bows are never used for hunting in Bhutan – yet another illustration of the Bhutanese talent for taking ideas and practices from the west and giving them their own unique twist.
