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 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...
