Single Bow

Advice for Beginner at bows?

I have been hunting since i was 10, now 21. While in iraq my friend told me how fun bowhunting is. What kinda bow would i need, and arrows, an what is "cable tune". I mean i've watched it, but i dont know what i need to know to Shoot bows, or what to look for in purchasing a bow. Thanks for you advice!!!
Later days and good hunting.

There is not too much that goes into buying a bow, at leas there shouldn't be. When buying a bow, shoot every single bow you can get your hands on that is in your price range. Shot side by side if you can, that way you have an immediate response to the other bows you are looking at.

I shoot a compound bow, they are more fun to me than the traditional archery gear. A Hoyt Vectrix to be exact and I absolutely love it. But others hate it, bows are one of the most individualistic things in hunting. Buy what you fell comfortable with and enjoy shooting.

As far as arrows, I shoot Carbon Express Maxima 350 shafts with AAE Maw Hunter Vanes. I love them too. The 3 big names out there for arrows are Easton, Gold Tip, and Carbon Express. I personally shoot best with Carbon Express, but used to shoot Gold Tip an liked them too. All three brands make great arrows, but make sure you get the top of the line shaft. As far as vanes go, I ike my AAE's, but I also love Blazer vanes by Bohning, and the Quickspins by NAP are pretty popular as well. I shoot Muzzy broadheads and there are so many options out there when it comes to those that you really need to shoot a few to see which fly best for you.

As far as cable tune goes, get a bow with a high quality string on it otherwise it will stretch on you are will fray really fast and not last that long. I always have my bow tuned by a professional and that way I know it was done right and if it wasn't I take it back and he'll make it right. My Hoyt has a Fuse string on it that has been prestretched by 700 lbs of force. It has no twist in it when I pull it back too. The cams are slaved together so they will never operate out of sync as well. It does have split limbs which makes it tougher to tune though. But once it is tuned it stays tuned and shoots arrows better than anything I have shot before.

Well, practice is fine and dandy but if you are not practicing right, then you are wasting your time. Practice as follows:

1. Make sure your bow is tuned by someone that knows what they are doing.
2. Determine if you will shoot fingers or a release.
3. Figure out a comfortable steady stance in which to shoot, later on you will want to practice from a ton of different positions to simulate real shooting conditions.
4. Determine a comfortable draw weight for you to be able draw back consistently and silently.
5. Find anchor point on which you will hold at full draw and make sure you draw back to it every single time you draw your bow.
6. Do not grip the bow with the bow hand when shooting. You hand should be loose and free at full draw. Otherwise you will torque the bow.
7. Start at 20 yards and go back farther and farther until you cannot accurately shoot groups inside the size of a paper plate, which is roughly the size of an animals kill zone.
8. Breath steadily until the shot. I hold my breath and then let a little out right before I shoot, like rifle hunters do.
9. Follow through. Keep aiming at the target even after you release the arrow. This will stabilize you bow and will keep you from adding any torque to the shot.
10. When using a release, you will want to use back tension to pull the trigger. Meaning, keep full draw and then by squeezing your shoulder blades together you will pull your finger into the release trigger. You do not want to pinch or hit the trigger.
11. Confidence is huge in archery. Envision hitting the bullseye. If you believe you will drill it, then you are much more likely to do so!
12. Have patience! Bow hunting and shooting can take a long while, possibly even seasons to hone your skills.
13. HAVE FUN!!!!!-If you aren't having fun, they why do it?

Good luck yo you and thanks for serving our country over in Iraq!!! We need all the help we can get!!!
