Out of all the different types of hunting, bow hunting is my favorite. I think bow hunting can be rather challenging and that’s what makes the sport so much fun. I basically think any sport is like that, you really have to make it challenging to enjoy it. A lot of hunters may disagree with me and that’s ok.
With a bow and arrow you have to go through a longer process than using a gun. If you plan on bagging a buck this upcoming season you have to practice, practice, practice. Going to the archery range is a must and actually trying out your broadheads on a foam target is very important. Because broad heads may fly differently than regular arrow tips.
Some bow hunters even get up in their own tree stand and mark the distance of some points on the ground. It’s harder to tell the distance up in a tree stand than on the ground and distance is very important to bow hunters. Most hunters have their sights marked at 20, 30, 40 yards. Even though a deer may seem close up in the stand, it may be farther than you expect. Using that 20 yard pin instead of that 30 yard pin may cost you a monster buck one season.
I’m just touching on a few aspects of bow hunting, read more on it in our forums.
