									5 Top Bowhunting Mistakes
•        Avoiding bowhunting mistakes is crucial on every hunt
    and keeping them in mind is the best way of doing it. One
    simple mistake may cost a game to getaway or miss out on a
    clean shot that wastes all the effort put in. Not to mention
    that it will be followed by hours of trailing again.

• 1. Miscalculating the Distance
•      Knowing the distance before firing is crucial in
  bowhunting. To get a decent shot out of the bow, the prey
  should be at least 20 yards close. Most hunters misjudge the
  distance due to lack of experience, but this mistake is easily
  avoided by equipping scopes that can identify the distance.
  Some choose to mark trees or other things that can be
  marked with the guesstimated distance as their hunting posts.
• 2. Missing the Kill-spot
•       When the prey is simply grazed and not subdued on the
  first shot, it will naturally run away. Missing the kill-spot
  means that there will be more trailing to follow. The kill-spot
  is somewhere between the heart and lungs; however, it
  should be taken into account to mind the animal’s position –
  whether it is lying down or standing. Moreover, the vital parts
  to aim for are essentially the same, but it varies accordingly
  depending on the animal.

• 3. Approaching the Prey Too Early
•      Once the arrow hits the animal in the kill-spot, most
  hunters would immediately approach it to claim their prize;
  however, this may only get their hopes up. A rule of thumb for
  this matter is to wait around 20 – 30 minutes before closing in
  on an injured animal. Even though they are hit correctly, they
  will be running on adrenaline when they see a threat nearing
  in; wherein, they can stand up quickly and run away.

• 4. Drawing the Bow Too Much
•      In bowhunting, most hunters prefer to maximize the
  speed and power of their shots; however, this may lead to
  missing the target. As the bow is drawn further, it becomes
  more difficult to keep it properly aimed. Simply put, never
  draw the bow too much, because sacrificing accuracy for the
  sake of an extra gain in speed and power is not worth it.

• 5. Poor Equipment Condition
•
•      Always keep the bow in good condition; otherwise, it may
  not function properly on bowhunting trips – especially on
  sudden ones. Most hunters neglect their bow’s maintenance,
  and when the bow is out of tune, hunting just becomes
  impossible.
