Thanks to the book series and movie, "The Hunger Games," a new generation of fans has been turned on to archery and bow hunting. In the novel-turned-movie blockbuster, heroine Katniss Everdeen relies on her mad bow-and-arrow skills to survive in a deadly televised reality competition of a dystopian future. Since the book trilogy debuted in 2008, some 36.5 million copies are now in print — a 55 percent jump this year alone, according to publisher Scholastic.
