What do bowhunters do? They try to shoot an animal with their bow and arrow, obviously. But along the way they also get skunked, make mistakes and spend a lot of time scouting, practicing and planning.
Many hunting shows and experienced hunters make hunting look easy, which gives first-time bowhunters an unrealistic expectation of what might happen when they go hunting. Unfortunately, you won’t always see big bucks and have an easy shot opportunity. We’re here to give you an accurate representation of what you might encounter your first time afield. Consider these situations so you can prepare appropriately.
No article, story, podcast or video will fully prepare you for what it’s like to bowhunt. Although these situations can give you some insight, most aspects of bowhunting are best learned through experience. So get out there, make mistakes and discover what the hype is all about.
