Yes, beavers can shoot, too!

Not to be outdone by our older members, the beavers enjoyed a fun session of archery at the hut.

Traditional thinking is that archery is beyond the reach of those with smaller arms, and indeed it can be difficult to get the arrows on target using the large bows that our cubs or scouts might use.

However, it is a versatile sport – you just need the right equipment, in this case ‘splat’ arrows and simpler bows.

So here we have it: our beavers using real bows, real arrows and hitting the target!
