Tips

We want to make sure you are successful, and the following archery tips will help you be better prepared:
  1. Practice, Practice, Practice – This is the first tip for a reason, you don’t want the chance of a lifetime to be an errant shot.
  2. Practice shooting at longer ranges – This makes the closer yards seem like a chip shot.
  3. Practice shooting from different elevations – Many hunters just practice from a standing position on the ground. If you are going to be in a tree stand or may even shoot sitting down, practice this.
  4. Practice shooting with the same clothes on that you will be wearing during your hunt. This includes gloves!
  5. Practice using your range finder and estimating yardages. When you arrive in your stand, make sure you use your range finder and have all your yardages down.
  6. If you are able to sharpen your broad heads, then practice with the same broad heads that you will be hunting with. This builds confidence and assures that your arrows are flying properly.
  7. Practice shooting in low light conditions dusk/dawn. Shoot until you cannot see your pins. Try to stretch it until dark. Many opportunities happen first thing in the morning or at last light.
  8. The power of visualization….. When you are practicing, visualize each shot as if you are shooting at that whitetail. Then when you are in the field and are getting ready to shoot, visualize the shot going exactly where you want.
The most important tip is, regardless of how the hunting ends up, to still have a great time. It’s not all about the harvest, it’s about creating great memories that will last a lifetime.
