so this season will be my first year hunting. ill be doing modern firearm this year but next year im thinking about bow hunting for deer and elk. i was just wondering how difficult is it for a newb that hasnt fired a bow??
today was at the archery shop and was holding back a primos brand bow. with the other manufacturers, i noticed my arms werent straight and steady like they should be but with the primos bows i noticed it was level the entire time. so im thinking about going for their brand of bows. plus the grip feels good too!
Primos bows are made by PSE. If you like the Primos you might try other PSE variations.
Probably the most challenging aspect of bow hunting is not the bow but the hunting. With a bow you have to get closer to your game. If your good at that aspect of the hunt, then the rest will come with practice.
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
