Life Insurance for Archery and Shooting Sports


It is not usually difficult to obtain life insurance cover that does not exclude archery / shooting sports from mainstream insurers.

However, not everyone takes out cover or if there is an accident and someone is shot; the person’s family may not find it easy or practical to pursue financial compensation through the courts.
