OUTDOOOR LIFE.COM From the Archives – Once the year’s serious bow shooting practice has started, it doesn’t take most bowhunters long to find the “cherry” arrows in their fresh new dozen or half dozen. Many of us take the time to number our arrows for just this reason; to find, after a few carefully shot rounds, the best-shooting, most-accurate “ammo” in our latest bunch. Eventually, these “lucky shafts” are the few that, come fall, will be first out of…[FULL ARTICLE]
PETERSEN’S BOWHUNTING From the Archives – Hunting accuracy starts with your gear: a well-tuned bow and perfect arrows. There is no way to justify not tuning your bow and your arrows. It is an essential skill of bowhunting. Back in the late 90s and early 2000s, I owned several bows that were so poorly made they could not be tuned no matter what I did. Most of today’s bows are much better, but there are still a few that…[FULL ARTICLE]
Weekend, August 11, 2018 - There’s this old song: “East is east and west is west, and the wrong one I have chose, Let's go where they keep on wearin' rings and things and buttons and bows.” As an ‘old school’ bowhunter – I shot mostly a recurve – I was taught to bring my bowstring to full draw by placing my index finger at the corner of my lips. The idea was to steady the eventual release by “resting” my finger against my head to steady both my head and my right arm (with elbow arched upwards in my case). Some recurve archers prefer using a kisser button tied on to the bowstring as an aid in ‘anchoring’ the archer’s sight-line. The idea was that the kisser button would indicate full draw when the shooter felt the button on his/her lips. The kisser button would line up with a sight pin or a ring sight. Similarly, a peep sight was not my bag. I never got into that style and stuck with the index finger because I was an instinct shooter, as were most of my recurve-shooting friends.
As bowhunting changed with the debut of the compound bow, archers were given a plethora of gear options; bows became more challenging and draw weights were optional and varied. That was followed swiftly by new arrows and broadheads, along with some very imaginative accessories that attracted a small army of rifle shooters to bowhunting. Special seasons for bowhunting didn’t hurt either because they provided the opportunity for extended hunting, one season with a bow followed by the gun season.
Preparing for either gun or bow hunting was always a favored activity. Basically, just another excuse to head to the target range in preparation for the upcoming hunting season Labor Day weekend. Preparation: that’s what we’re suggesting in this edition of…
