Arrows - Practice as You Will Hunt

Author: 
Jim Boyd

I see it all the time.

Not just in bowhunting - but in hunting in general.

Whatever you are going to do when hunting, do that in practice also! So many times, we hear stories about the big one that got away that is traced back to not doing this!

Never was this more true than in archery. There are so many variables in shooting a bow that any little change can throw you out of whack - and affect your aimpoint, big time.

I have been out of archery for a LONG time and just got back into it this year.

I have a crucial Midwest trip coming up in a few weeks and am really concerned about being able to make a good shot, if one is presented.

One of the things I did early on, after I got a new bow (Bear Attack) was to ditch the field points and the regular nocks.

I am shooting my actual broadheads and Nocturnal brand nocks for all of my practice...

I made a test before doing so, however... I left three arrows with field points and plastic nocks and set up three arrows for hunting and shot them in comparison tests.

I guess it is the broadheads making the difference - but whatever... I have to shoot broadheads and will shoot the illuminated nocks... so that is all I am going to practice with.

In fact, I shot a lot better with the field points - that would give you a false sense of confidence that might be shattered if you used a broadhead and made a bad shot on a deer.

I am shooting from 10 - 30 yards primarily, from an elevated deck behind my house. I do shoot 40 and 50 yards but they do not seem to be real world shots, at least for me.

I am older now - 53 - and the constant practice is not easy, but I am seeing marked improvement each week.

I am not shooting little 1" groups at 20 yards, but I have stopped shooting at the same spot - could not a...
