      Speaking of the use of the bow for sport, flight shooting in the
      middle east and mediterranean has been a well established sport
      since at least the early 14th century. In 1453 (after the sacking
      of Constantinople by the Turks) a guild was established to promote
      the sport. This sporting use of the bow continues into the 17th or
      18th century at which time the bow declined in popularity. The
      ingenuity and 'engineering' that went into this tackle and the
      skill at which it was used is truly astounding.
