"Hunger Games" creates interest in archery

The hit film The Hunger Games, whose heroine is proficient with a bow, has sparked interest in the sport of archery.

In Chicago, archery clubs have reported a huge increase in membership, while New York City's archery ranges' use has increased by 75%. Even the Education Department of the New York Public Schools plans to add archery to the curriculum, based on the popularity of the movie.
