Deer Hunting Bow - How to Choose the Best

November 14, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

With so many bow companies and bow models out there many bowhunters especially those who are new to the sport can often feel very overwhelmed and unsure when it comes to choosing the best deer hunting bow. The truth of the matter is that the answer to "Which deer hunting bow is the best?" is not black and white. In fact almost every bow on the market right now are all great deer hunting bows because they put out enough power to kill a deer and the bottom line is that everybody is different and will have different opinions about which bow is better. You have to choose the bow that best fits you as an individual. Here are a few tips that will help you to choose the correct bow for you.

1. Choose An Appropriate Drawlength

This is a major point right here. So often bowhunters will go into a store to buy a bow and will be sold a bow that doesn't fit them - meaning that the drawlength of the bow is either too long or too short. It's important that you know or find out your drawlength before you purchase a bow this will ensure that you're buying a deer hunting bow that fits you.

2. Leave your Draw Weight pride at Home

I see this time and time again bowhunters will most often link the draw weight of the bow to a more macho and effective deer hunting bow. The truth of the matter is that you have to choose a bow with a draw weight you can easily draw and handle especially in colder weather or it will be of no use to you. A 50lb bow with the right setup can just as easily take down a deer as a 70lb bow.

3. Try before you Buy

This is key to choosing a deer hunting bow that is right for you. In order to know how a bow feels when shot, and how it reacts when shot you undoubtedly have to shoot it. Bows have different draws, vibrations, shot characteristics, grips, and many more features you will only really get a feel for once you have spent some time shooting it. If you are in a situation where you are unable to try before you buy (pawn shop, ebay etc) go to a bow shop and ask if they have the exact bow in stock or something very similar.

4. You get what you Pay For

Just like any other product in any other niche the old adage - "You get what you pay for" comes into play in archery as well, however this just like any other product is not always the case. In archery you there are great deer hunting bows that are overpriced because of the name associated with it. This is why the last tip is so important you may find a bow that feels as good as or even better than another and could be hundreds less because of the name associated with that bow.

Following these tips will help you when choosing the best deer hunting bow for you. If you are interested in more archery/ bowhunting tips and information visit my archery blog at
