Tips for hunters

A successful hunt is accomplished by patience, learning, and dedication.

You can never have enough trail cameras; study deer movement and always put one in a less traveled areas, never know where the mature bucks may be moving at.

If you are hunting from a tree stand, range out distances by land marks prior to the animal coming into range.  This will save time having to range that animal on the move. 

Know how your bow shoots prior to heading to the woods; practice, practice, practice and always take time shoot your broad heads in practice.  Your broad heads may not necessarily hit where your field points are hitting.

Try different fletching if possible, your arrow may fly better with a different fletch length, height, or fletch style.

Super Tune your equipment! 1st Take time to paper tune your bow; get that perfect bullet hole. 2nd walk back tune; you may be on from 20-30 yards, but as you get out to 40+ yards, arrows may veer left or right of your target, and it is not always you sight that needs adjustment as many think.  Your rest needs to be adjusted accordingly to your arrow placement during this tuning process.

 Scout your spots early, hunt the wind, and eliminate your odor!

Stay Fit! – Be in shape for the hunt you are doing. This betters the chance for a good shot and a successful hunt.

Tips for tournament archers

Practice for the tournament you are about to partake in.  If the tournament is going to take place early morning, practice prior to in the morning.

Know the rules for the tournament in advance.

Focus and follow through! Create a repetition that you use with each shot.

Tune your equipment; paper tune, walk back tune, and yoke tune when necessary.

Form is a key part of your shot placement.

Never be hesitant to ask a fellow archer a question.

Take the time to know your bow inside/out.

Just because another archer uses certain equipment, it may not work the best for you.  Take the time to try different arrows, arrow components, releases, etc. find the equipment that will let you Dominate the X!

Lastly, Stay Fit! – Exercise, strength muscle and tendons, and work on muscle memory.  This will aid in stamina, shot placement, and help avoid injuries.
