Awesome archery stuntmen are pretty much Katniss Everdeen in real-life

If we’ve learned anything from The Hunger Games and The Avengers, it’s that archery is ridiculously badass. It’s really no surprise that it’s one of the fastest growing sports in America right now.

Still, it’s not often that you get to see much archery outside of Hollywood movies and the Olympics. This YouTube video gives us a look at the real thing, with stunt archers flipping through the air in a mixture of free-running and gymnastics, bow in hand.

It doesn’t really matter that these guys seem to be shooting with elasticated practise bows. It still looks hella cool. When are we going to get a martial arts movie all about archery, huh?

Someone needs to call Marvel and ask them to hire these guys to make a Hawkeye movie, stat.
