Chapter 6: Know Your Archery Gear
Dating back to the earliest period of civilization, people have been using bows and arrows for harvesting game. And for good reason. It's a very efficient and effective tool. It served the earliest hunters well in taking down even the most ferocious animals - think of a cave bear and you have a good idea of the kind of prey this tool could defeat. While today's hunters generally face less deadly targets, they can count on the timeless reliability of this tool- from longbow to recurve to compound - to get the job done. Before going out in the field, consult local bow hunting laws and enroll in a bowhunter education course.
Important! Responsible bowhunters learn to judge distances and practice making accurate shots from ground positions and elevated stands.
