I was wondering how many traditional archers were in the U.S. so I googled it. I was surprised that in 2012 the ATA did a survey and listed the totals on their site.

According to the ATA:
2.6 Million hunt with recurve bows, they did have a seperate category for longbows so I'm not sure if they included longbows and recurves together. Overall 18.9 million people shoot archery or bow hunt in the US.

Crossbows included? Boltists are moving on up.
