Bow Hunting

Recommended Posts

Stiff,if your going down the bowtech route i was in cabelas last week at the black fridaynsale,there was a bowtech/cabelas model in the bargain cave for a tad under 300 dollars,also consider going the used route,some archers are like the uk carp angling tackle tarts and buy a new bow each year,last years elite models are often for sale at bargain prices,not bare bow but fully kitted up,look in the classifieds in forums such as archerytalk etc.

It'll never be lifted which is a shame considering you can bow hunt all over the rest of the Anglosphere, a chunk of Europe and Africa. Makes you wonder what the potential revenue would be from bowhunting tourism. It's massive in the States with the likes of Shockey and Cam Hanes etc and with the UK's relative high density deer populations I imagine those high wealth tourists would love to come here and get a load of hunting in.

I choose for themselves a gun instead of a bow for my hunting trip.

Of course, a bow will have the advantage of not emitting noises make other prey flee. But it seems that a gun would easier to use

Not quite sure why you have just copied my post and added 'by' to the end fella? :blink:

Local laws here are a gun cannot used near a building but a bow can, thats why I got a bow license, just not had the chance to get into it yet.

Any advice on buying second hand compound in the UK? I reckon I want a 27.5" length and probably 60+lb weight but otherwise I'm clueless. Mackem?

Your draw length is 27.5 with a 60+lb pull,thats cool,but the second hand market in the UK is tiny compared to the US market which is awash with bargains :yes: some people change their bows annually and you can pick up a bow that 2 seasons back was the must have for a considerable discount,register with archerytalk and ship one over,your going to save cash :yes:

Hi how did you find out your draw length ? as you might have more luck finding a used bow with a 28" draw as not all compounds can be adjusted to draw length without changing cams.

also try for sale section of archeryinterchange forum uk

Just an estimate/calculation based on height and arm span from one of the US archery websites.

ok that can work.

i would visit the local archery shop and get them to measure you properly to be exact .

also draw your bow with a arrow nocked and get a friend to measure arrow from inside nock groove to inside riser grip +1 3/4" ( back of shelf )should be close as well

cheers
