One of my favorite outdoor sports is archery. In this thread, please post images of your stamps depicting anything to do with bows and arrows. To start things off, here are images of five stamps that I would consider right on target.

Archer using a hunting bow, designed by Belgian artist Émile Vloors (1871-1952), engraved and printed by American Bank Note Company, and issued for use in Belgian Congo in 1923, Scott No. 98, SG No. 129.

Sorry, you missed the target with that heading. The archer shoots for the gold at the centre of the target. Bull's-eyes are for guns.
I have an accumulation of archery stamps, due to my family's involvement in the sport, so I will be interested to see what other people have.

At one time, I too was in to archery.

While I do not collect sports stamps per se, I do collect martial arts on stamps. I recently obtained these stamps but have not yet done the research on them but bought them in the hopes that they are examples of the martial arts sport of Kyu-do (Way of the Bow).

Forgive me with the size of the first stamp but, I tried different settings and it would not vary.

At any rate, they certainly fit in to the archery topic.

The Arrowhead.

San Bernandino California.
Naturally occuring geological feature.

Near San Bernandino is a naturally formed arrowhead-shaped rock formation on the side of a mountain. It measures 1375 feet by 449 feet. According to the Native American legend regarding the landmark arrowhead, an arrow from heaven burned the formation onto the mountainside in order to show tribes where they could be healed. During the mid-19th century, "Dr." David Noble Smith claimed that a saint-like being appeared before him and told of a far-off land with exceptional climate and curative waters, marked by a gigantic arrowhead. Smith's search for that unique arrowhead formation began in Texas, and eventually ended at Arrowhead Springs in California in 1857. By 1889, word of the springs, along with the hotel on the site (and a belief in the effect on general health of the water from the springs) had grown considerably. Hotel guests often raved about the crystal-clear water from the cold springs, which prompted Seth Marshall to set up a bottling operation in the hotel's basement. By 1905, water from the cold springs was being shipped to Los Angeles under the newly created "Arrowhead" trademark.
