Daniel Valasek says his friends got him into the sport after they invited him on a hunting trip. He's been slinging arrows ever since.

“Hunting for a few years with a rifle. I wanted to go with different friends of mine. They all said 'If you want to come hunting with us, you have to pick up bow hunting. I tried it out and immediately fell in love with it,” he said.

Valasek also talked about how much cheaper bow hunting is since you can use arrows multiple times.

If you are interested -- the archery range is free.

It's located on the Military Reserve, east of Boise.
