What do you do during the off-season? If you’re a hunter, you can take this time to improve your bowhunting. Here are some tips on how to do just that.
Update Your Gear
If you’re going to become a better bowhunter, you may also need to invest in some better gear. Take some leftover money and invest in some new equipment for yourself. Whether it’s a new bow or some new clothes to wear on the hunt that offer more mobility, little updates can help improve your attitude and drive you to work towards your goal, says Petersen’s Bowhunting.
Take the time to get yourself in better shape this year. By doing so, you will help increase your overall stamina out on the hunt and allow you to stay out longer without getting tired. One way you can coach yourself is to set up your targets far from your backyard, meaning you have to walk out to your range for practice and back. These extra steps will help you stay in shape while also offering a chance to improve your field stalking.
Improve Your Skills
While practice does make perfect, self-reflection is important as well. Go through your process and do some research to see what you can do to improve your overall hunting skills. Consider recording yourself shooting and analyzing the shot to look for areas of opportunity like an improper release or an unstable hand placement that may affect your grip.
