Bowhunting Tip: Holding on Draw


This is one thing I try and do at each session when I’m practicing, is draw my bow back and hold for 3 minutes. The trick is to set up at 40 yards on your first shot and do this and make it a kill shot.

This is simply testing you if you were in a hunting situation, many times we get out to our stand or blind and that is the situation you fall into. A deer walks in and you have to draw, hold and make that one shot count. If you're shooting with a friend make a friendly wager this also adds the pressure of that one shot!...

It's Time to Re-Tool and Re-Tune


If you're a bowhunter, you should already be practicing for the coming season, and August is also the time to get serious about your equipment.

After all, you don't want to put a lot of effort into getting your bow tuned and shooting like a dream only to have to replace the string or cable right before the season and have to start the tuning process from scratch.

This is the time to go over everything piece by piece and make sure it's going to last through the hunting season. Check strings, cables, string loops, serving, peep sights and any rubber tubing associated with them.

This is also a good time to dig up your arrows and have fletching repair work done. Your bow shop will be flooded right before the season, so get these maintenance chores out of the way now.

Remember, too, that now is the time to settle on your final setup. If you've been thinking of changing broadheads or broadhead weight, or even draw weight, now is the time to make the switch and work out the bugs.

Good bow shooting is as much mental as it is physical, so taking care of these details now will help you relax and be 100 percent confident when Mr. Big steps into your shooting lane. ...

Thinking about Bowhunting? Here's How To Get Started

It's probably safe to say that most of us began hunting with a rifle. As our skills evolve, we look for ways to rediscover the challenge. Inevitably we turn to bowhunting. But its not as simple as just picking up a bow and hitting the woods. A learning curve exists. As with any activity, there are right and wrong ways to get started. Suffice it to say, if you're thinking about bowhunting, here are a few tips to help put you on the right track.

In this technological age of opportunity, we are no longer a hunting and gathering society - at least not for the sole purpose of survival. Agricultural and technological development has displaced our need to hunt. For most outdoorsmen, hunting is a sporting activity. Many are seeking alternative methods of pursuing game. To this end North Americans in particular are recognizing the benefits, challenges and accessibility of archery hunting.

More Opportunity
Where I hunt, fall seasons typically begin in late August and run straight through until the beginning of December. Relative to the much shorter rifle dates, extended archery seasons offer more opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. As well, where some species are restricted by the need for a special license acquired only through the application/draw method, these same animals may be open to the hunting archer under the authority of a general over-the-counter license or tag. Each state and province will have different regulations dictating harvests with a bow.

Traditional Versus High-Tech
I don't know about you, but when I was first introduced to bowhunting, it was the most exhilarating opportunity I'd experienced as a sportsman to date! Not only was the concept of being close enough to game to shoot with a bow exciting, but also the idea of a silent weapon certainly held intrigue.

My first question was "how much will it cost?" As with any sport, its up to you the hunter/consumer. First the question should be asked, do you want to use a traditional (i.e., a long bow or recurve) or high-tech (i.e., a compound) bow?

This decision should be based on your personal motivation and the amount of time you're willing to invest. While considered by many to be pure in form, traditional archery requires more practice. Most of us have limited time to spend in the field as it is. Where accurate use of traditional equipment is basic at best, it requires a skill learned largely through repetitious shooting - much more so in fact than shooting a compound. Alternatively, compound bows are loaded with all the bells and whistles. Sights, overdraws, kisser buttons, and more, all contribute to pinpoint accuracy to accomplish precision shooting. With wheels and cams to relieve a percentage of overall draw weight, compound bows can be more forgiving. With today's solocam bows, tuning is less frequently required, but diligent attention to fine adjustments in centershot, arrow rests and sight pins is always important.

Price Range
A quality longbow or recurve will ...
