One of the most important things to remember about bow hunting is that there is always a lot to learn. If you want to have a great time hunting down your game during this archery season and beyond, then you should learn how to perfect your skills. Here are some compound bow hunting tips that you probably don’t take seriously.
Darron McDoigal from Bow Hunter says that the reason why many hunters miss their target is that they are always quick to attack.
Of course, there are now-or-never scenarios that require immediate action. These are generally when an animal is moving between an obvious point A and point B, and where getting in front of the animal and then ambushing it as it travels by is practical. Aside from scenarios like this, it’s usually best to slow down, concrete a game plan, and then move methodically.
It is best to move slowly to avoid many blow stalks. Being patient is therefore the best way to hunt down a target.
According to Aram von Benedikt, an author on American Hunter, the best way to make sure you never miss a target is to practice.
Work with your chosen archery equipment until you’re comfortable shooting from your knees, under branches and over brush. Practice shooting steeply uphill and downhill; stretch your range as far as you ethically can. Shots can be long, steep and challenging in elk country, and the better prepared you are to make a tough shot the more likely you are to make meat.
This means that you have to practice as often as you can so that you can successfully hunt down your game.
According to Doyle Dietz, a correspondent of Citizens Voice, a hunter should learn how to aim correctly.
“Believe me, even after all the bears Deb and I have shot with bows, there is still an adrenaline rush and a level of excitement like nothing else every time one comes into bow range,” Koch said. “For that reason, I never rush my shot, and always give myself time to calm down and concentrate.
“You have to know where to aim, which is why I recommend using a 3D bear target, and make sure you have fine-tuned your shot, realizing you will be making the shot under pressure.
Usually, it is not about aiming to shoot. It is about aiming so well that you won’t miss the target on the first shot.
If you keep these tips in mind, you can be sure that you can easily hunt your target down every time you go hunting with your new compound bow.
