    Default Bow weight vs. Rifle weight

    I was reading an article the other day in one of my magazines (Outdoor Life or Field and Stream, don't remember which), and came across a question that intrigued me so I thought I would pass it on:

    Why is it that a 6 lb rifle is light enough to be considered a "wand", but a 4.5 lb bow is heavy enough to be considered an "anchor"?
